Slaying Owned Vampires


Putting a stake in the heart of self-doubt and fears.

it’s sitting in my soul.
Laughing at the edge.
Can’t pay the toll.

Watching the wind.
Breaking all my bones.
Takes me in visions.
Swallowing me whole.

But I can’t dig out.
Don’t bother.
Choking on a wish.
Sun sets on my desire.
Full of uprising.
Lost and uncontrolled.
I’m spinning, I’m spinning.
Nerve cut and bleeding.
Never getting old.
Soul dancing on a wire.
Fear overwhelming mashing my desire.
Still looking like I’m bold.

Eruption overflowing burning up the seas.
Corruption flowing like a river in my veins.
Poisoned blood brings me to my knees.

Feel my looking, feel me seeing.
Never getting quite enough.
Dangling on a needle of oppression.
Edge falling away about to call my bluff.

Blacking out my days.
But here I am.
Here I am.
Don’t start now.
Don’t try to understand.
Fighting through the haze.
Wild in the smoke, drunken in my depths.
Coming to crescendos.
Filled in dreams of sweet rich glaze.
