Will You Remember My Voice?

When the lure of sweet dreams

Is too great to step out of

When the peace within

Surpasses the turmoils of life alive

When constant surety of darkness

Is as enticing as supple breasts

Will you remember my voice?

When weight on my chest

Bores me down into the abyss

When lights fade in the distance

And the night is pleasant

When music plays no more

Dancing a thing of memory

Will you remember my voice?

When I shut my eyes

Never to open them again

When I close my palms

Never to feel a touch again

When I keep quiet

Never to scream again

Will you remember my voice?

We Are All Mad

Oh what it is to love

Pain suffered and inflicted by self

Oh for the sweet fill of the sun above

Infatuation and reaction engulf

We are all mad

Struggling with unrealistic notions

Swooning in uncontrollable motions

Crying in unrequited intentions

Dying in non existent perceptions

We are all mad

For the tingling feels

Creeping up spines

Restless in dissatisfied reels

Bound in arresting vines

We are all mad
