Ruin Masked With Dreams

Poetry By: Francis Berryman
Poetry



this a song really, rather than a poem, but it works as a poem, its about a time in my life, and is in the style of placebo, if you know who they are, enjoy. :)

A secret said in silence,
A rumour in the dark,
The twisted games of make believe,
That leave a hidden mark.

But keep chasing down that pathway,
Keep running down that track,
Just dream like you've been dreaming,
Don't let yourself look back.

The truthful lies left wanton,
The chaos closed inside,
The half-word left for the quick ear,
The message left unspied.

But keep chasing down that pathway,
Keep running down that track,
Just dream like you've been dreaming,
Don't let yourself look back.

A spiteful knife thrust in the back,
A curious inflection,
Heated words exchanged so cold,
A pale moonlit reflection.

But keep chasing down that pathway,
Keep running down that track,
Just dream like you've been dreaming,
Don't let yourself look back.

Unthinking thoughts kept in your mind,
Unvoiced words, now spoken,
A tangled web of ordered things,
A solid will left broken.

But keep chasing down that pathway,
Keep running down that track,
Just dream like you've been dreaming,
Don't let yourself look back.

A ravaged land, a wartorn sea,
A city bent and bruised,
A mangled mess of ravaged lies,
Of people hurt and used.

But keep chasing down that pathway,
Keep running down that track,
Just dream like you've been dreaming,
Don't let yourself look back.

The countless things of right and wrong,
The playwright's heartless script,
The sense of the illogical,
The things we cant encrypt.

But keep chasing down that pathway,
Keep running down that track,
Just dream like you've been dreaming,
Don't let yourself look back.

Mindless thoughts, and wordless deeds,
Those evil games you've played,
The lives you've ruined, broken down,
The times you should have stayed.

But keep chasing down that pathway,
Keep running down that track,
Just dream like you've been dreaming,
Don't let yourself look back.

Never stop to face the past,
Oh you, without a heart,
To see the things that you have done,
You would tear yourself apart.

So keep chasing down that pathway,
And just keep dreaming all those dreams,
Do what you must, do anything,
To block their tortured screams.

And then Hide away in hide and seek,
Dont let yourself be found,
And keep that secret safe in silence,
Then just fade without a sound.

Yes Keep chasing down that pathway,
And keep dreaming all those dreams,
Do what you must, do anything,
To block your tortured screams.
