Brilliant Disguise

We all wear disguises.

Some are elaborate, entwined with layers of truth and deception, so closely wound that no one can tell one strain from another.

Not even the wearer of the disguise.

Some are simple, a brief disguise to get out of a meeting, or to say you’re ok, when you’re actually sad,happy, tired, excited, angry, at peace.

I have disguises. You do too. We all do, but Some don’t know they have disguises. They worked on them for too long, without paying attention to where the thread and needle went. Now they are tied up completely, helplessly.

I have many disguises.

One is a brilliant disguise.

For an age, no one would break that brilliant disguise. Until necessity called for the string of deception to be cut. and cut. and cut.

And one day, my brilliant disguise will be gone. A painful yet beautiful truth let loose to a world that burns and punishes the unknown.

I await the final cut. I await a brilliant disguise to become a brilliant truth.

The simplest things


The simplest things are hard to say;

Always expecting something worse

Than ever happens in reality.

But that won’t stop me being afraid;

As if that passing car’s my hearse

Come early to take me ‘way from reality

 

And every day that you become

Closer to me

You’re finding out I’m not as good

As you thought me to be

And I feel i’m not so far away

from you leaving me

Not turning round to say goodbye

As I drift out to sea

 

The simplest things are hard to say;

But left unsaid the words corrupt

And meddle with my troubled head.

So now I dream of one way trains;

And pointless words and faking laughs

I’m taken ‘way from where I felt misled

 

And every day that you become

Closer to me

You’re finding out I’m not as good

As you thought me to be

And I Feel i’m not so far away

from you leaving me

Not turning round to say goodbye

As I drift out to sea

A game of chess and lies.


Stuck between a truth and lie

A truth and a truth

A lie and a lie?

Each important day since youth

A game where they moved me

Forwards and back upon black and white squares.

A pawn, controlled, they cared not for me

Pushed further than they should have dared

The noble pawn cannot turn back

Despite how high the odds are stacked.

darkness in the mind of all


there is foul darkness in the mind of all

yet the minds of all are not the same

why was it you who had to blame

and I who into flames must fall?

your mind’s fire burns coldly without soul,

false passion blinded all truth and all reason

and anger roars; a thoughtless demon,

your life to demons you now do owe

There is yet time to escape their gripping hold

melt the ice fires and let true passion run free

cold as your shackles may be

truth melts with ease such cold

there is foul darkness in the mind of all

in my mind too its painful taint holds strong

but I found myself the journey long

while you through darkness still do crawl.

Absolute darkness
