I live in the shadows,
Escaping my nemesis,
Evading my hunters,
I leap from the precipice,
Into the gaping maw of betrayal.
Into the open arms of contempt.
A purveyor of confusion,
A dedicated seller of lies,
A stranger to truth,
A stranger to faith,
Devouring innocence in a quest for success,
Tapping each vein in a hunt for life.
The streets are awash with rivers of blood,
Piercing screams of death echo from every corner,
They call my name and tell me my failings,
Mocking my hopes and desires.
I rail at the storm,
With impotemt rage,
But it spits back my hate in my face,
Another lost dream.
