Horror Story

I am haunted by

the ghost of my past

who thought this was real

who thought this would last

but like so much in the world,

the illusion was strong

and the feelings were fake

and the moment was wrong

and now I must live with

the demons I’ve spawned

pretending that I’ll make it

after the morning has dawned.

Midnight Stroll

I have been lost in those eyes

since the moment they laid claim

to this battered heart of mine

that had gotten used to pain.

I’d stay forever if you’ll let me

wander the far reaches of your soul

since getting lost with you

is my favorite midnight stroll.
