The greatest pleasure and no one to share it with.

No man is an island


But I built with my own hand


A kingdom for one


Under the golden rays of the sun


I walk among my fellows


But they will ever see the forge's bellows


Or the hammer that made the walls


To only me i answer the call


There is no way in


Just my throne withn


I'm my own royal court


And with my mistakes I'm the jester for sport


With no one else but myself to blame


I strip everyone attached to my name


So I may rule alone


With no one to  jury sentence why should I atone?


I walk among many but they will never learn


What it is I truly yearn


To bask forever in the past


To an age that couldn't last


When I just went to start


Without a stone and cold heart


Before the plague bearing dove


Infected me with that disease called love


That life tricks us with so we may breed


But from that I'm cured and freed


No one but me, myself, and I 


Us three until all of us die


So I may suffer unto no mortal Lord


I'm my own olive branch and sword


I can cackle in my own insanity 


And bask in my vanity


As I dress in rags


Saying look how imperious my robes drag


Thinking myself a king


With no sceptre or ring


I need no one to justify my reign


I answer to only to my own will profane


Taking in the most sadistic pleasures


Only againt myself I cut deep beyond measure


But it fills me with my such joy


I again feel like a boy


As my brain screams


Calling for an end to this sick dream


But I just laugh as my mental knife cuts


Leaving behind a jagged rut


Basking in sweet stife


As I put myself regally under my own knife
