Poem: Ready to Fire

 

 

Ready to fire,
kneel before the might
ready to fire
your end is tonight

The will to rise above you
final will’s to destroy you
so get ready to fire
get ready to burn

Get ready to fight
the final battle is going tonight
when I stood in front of you
fell the rage I am burning
finally, you’ll see the truth
the ash you’re turning

Ready to fire
feel my might
ready to fire
die with my pride

A gunshot in your fucking head
scream and despair
the smell of your fear
drives me madder

Ready to fire,
start the war
annihilation from the face of the earth
slay the enemy, kill ’em all
the smell of dust and insanity,
blood, sweat, and tears
scream of pain, of terror
scorn your suffering
I am leaving
leaving like liberator

Ready to fire, start the war
annihilation from the face of the earth
slay the enemy, kill ’em all
the fusion of dust and…
blood

Poem: Spellbound

 

 

I can run from my demons
but they won’t leave me
in a which hour they keep wake me up
tearing my soul apart

In cold sweat, I cannot breathe
why do they won’t leave me
I can’t take it anymore

Just when I am on the edge when I’m about to broke
they just stop and laugh to me
Is this some joke?

And they come back every night
torturing me ’till I have nothing left for the fight

Broken down with tears and shakes
they keep adding more pain
leading me to new mistakes
turning my life in hell.

Poem: My Guardian Angel

 

 

All these years it’ s driving me crazy
My heart is broken, living in pain
My guardian angel is so lazy,
Drunk, or kicked out in the rain

When he’s sober and with the hangover
He does something for me
Like a foreign movie without a subtitle
I don’t understand what he’s saying

I pray to him to watch over me
I pray for help and good luck
But he’s at the bar, you see
He’ s drunk again and he doesn’t give a fuck

Poem: Take It All

 

 

Take all our money
take all the power
what will you bring
when it comes to the final hour?

Hide behind the diploma
hide behind the uniform
get up from this mental coma
hide from a bullet storm

Under the curtain of madness
in the surface of ignorance
you only bring the sadness
giving nothing for existence

Drowning us, we hit the bottom
and everything we have
takes Babylon

Poem: Forgotten Burning Soul

 

 

I’m burning this bridge, my heart to the ground
I have put my hopes up to high
It’s time for them to go back down to the mess that’s around
I will never have a firm stance in life,
Forever under rubble, I will be found
But under this self-afflicted weight,
Have I realized a truth so profound,
That because of expectations,
I’ve become numb
I put my heart into others too soon
But relationships last like the rise and fall of the sun
So in the ashes of the day,
And the frozen caves of the night,
I stumble upon who
I’ve become: A forgotten soul,
No one,
A rotten corpse in the day,
And a lonely caveman at night,
The only hope I have Is the opposite life in sight
But both are two of the same
A forgotten soul,
Trying to find meaning in his name,
But even if he found one
It wouldn’t help him none
Cause when you’re lost, you’re lost
It’s like having a heart with no lungs
Craving love but no tongue,
The only thing left is to survive,
Or from the truth, run.

Poem: What do you fear?

 

 

Head up high looking for the sky,
Only gray clouds again, no end in sight,
I am sitting, just listening to the drops of rain,
A happy home, but what’s the reality?
Does your mind go fast?
And how long does that last?
How fast does it break the walls around you?
Can you escape the prison you built yourself?
I can see the state of misery from the introduction,
Maybe I will use my eyes to see a brighter day,
The pictures don’t get clearer, but I feel like I am nearer,
Am I from around here?
Don’t want to be everything you want,
Don’t want to be everything for you,
I don’t even fucking know you,
Could it be to be my destiny,
Something that killed me?
Well I can’t follow, because I am still alive
Only the scars are there and I just fly I don’t care,
If you try to kill me, your life I won’t spare,
You want to take me far away from here,
What’s your true intention?
What the hell do you fear?

Poem: Reading it Well

 

 

I looked out the window,
The sun was gone,
I put some music on,
Listening to the wind outside,
I woke up in the middle of the day again,
What a pain,
I wonder what’s wrong,
Why can’t I enjoy a single song,
I can’t see what others tell me,
More than feelings, more than stories,
I see more than you could tell, from a text,
You wouldn’t know, how can you even tell,
When I hide so well?

Poem: Despair of the Poet

The wolfs are howling
It’s a sad howl
The dead are dead
Souls are wandering, searching for it
Despair, once it was just a word Today its the world

God let us down once again
Nor an enemy nor a friend
Just not there
We had to look for despair
It leads us to it
Now we want it

Life is chaos
Chaos is beauty in the mind of a poet
The poet knows, oh that poet knows the world he owns
From chaos he creates peace
Then rips the page

Only chaos, that’s the state of his mind
He does not want any help, yet he is kind
What in the world does he need that chaos for in his mind?
Despair, despair dear friend
It is where the poet comes to an end.

Poem: Ode to Farewell

Through the wind I heared a sigh

And as snowflakes covered my fallen brother

I said my last goodbye

The night came

So endeth the day

And I was to go away

Over the hills

Over the sea

To the lands that I have never seen

The lands that connect to the sea

Under the cloud

Without the stars

No snow in the winter

No flowers in the spring

Alone I came

But back I will be with lots of friends

And where the road will take me

I won’t tell

Because when the day comes

To bid you farewell

I will tell

I will tell to everyone around me

And if I see them again, faith will tell me

Where the road takes me

I came all this way

And when the day comes to bid everyone farewell

I will tell them

About the places I have been

About the sorrows I have seen

And I won’t forget

Nor will I regret

The people that went on this road with me

And with this night ending

So ends my day

Alongside the devil in hell

With the angels in heaven

Through the silver streams

And big seas

Over hills

And over mountains

Through forests

And deserts

I couldn’t know

And I wouldn’t want to know

Where the road took me

And to whom I bid ferewell

Poem: Hunger

I feel a hunger in my heart
Its just enough to keep me awake at night
Are you the answer I should wonder
I can feel my appetite for you
I can feel my heart beat faster
So take me home with you
Let me take a bite of you
Just let me feel you breath
And make your heart beat faster
So take me home tonight
And be my little baby
