A Year Ago

‘Twas last year on this very day

Giant rats flooded the streets

It seemed they found a place to play

As they tore the town to bits

Found in every nook and corner

Of houses, stores and bus

The town was pretty soon taken over

With no piper to save us

And when the damage was complete

A loss of thousand lives or more

The rats they knelt at my feet

I took them to the shore

On our way I thought of a man

The piper of Hamelin

And my mind hatched a plan

To kill them would be a sin

To a chemical lab we detoured

An army I did grow

A hundred towns we secured

It all started a year ago

Lost In The Woods

Lost in the woods alone I stand

With night sky overhead

Not so far away a river streams

With water of bloody red

The birds are quiet or may be dead

The trees are spitting fire

The bugs they bite my legs and hands

In this flaming empire

Fail I do to understand

The cause for hollow screams

The winds they seem to never tire

To ridicule my dreams

2 Voices In My Head

2 voices in my head

Haunt me night and day

One tells tales of horror

The other of decay

2 voices in my head

Do not let me sleep

They show me the consequences

Of the secrets that I keep

2 voices in my head

Torture my mind

One acts very selfish

The other acts unkind

2 voices in my head

Have found a home to stay

They’ll be with me forever

I know they won’t betray

A Tremendous Shame

I read a news the other day

About an empty town

All the folks they stay away

For a ghost comes around

I also read about a family

Happy and tightly-knit

All of them died mysteriously

They blame it on a spirit

I heard a horror story

Yesterday on the radio

A sweet girl named Dorie

Vanished in the middle of her show

I don’t know what to make of it

‘Tis a tremendous shame

They’re calling me all sorts of things

They really could use my name

Misty

At a time when babies weep
And men are dead and women; asleep
Silence creeps and darkness nears
A mystical voice touches my ears
A soft humming voice that never grows too big
But pounds my mind to cause intrigue
I know not where the secret lies
I’ve searched the land and the open skies
Moments later, the sound is gone
So’s my sleep without a yawn
Gone to play and cause divide
Haunt now people on the other side

Amidst The Darkness

I have visions of a starry night and a flight of golden stairs that lead me to it

The chimes and the times are my prison

The winds they blow

The clouds they snow

And I am climbing with no reason

A familiar voice in my head calls out to me asking me not to quit

A dead cave I come across which leads me to the darkness of a darker soul

The queens and a slave open the cave

Silence deafens

Golden weapons

And I am riding along the wave

The echoes of a familiar voice inside my head is consumed by a hole

Where am I now?

Where do I go?

Am I trapped in this for eternity? Lost beyond recovery?

Is this a nightmare?

Am I all alone?

Someone please wake me up. I don’t want to stay asleep

Would you take my hand?

Join me in this realm?

We will find a door

Amidst the darkness
