After my brief hiccup of a hiatus, I have returned.
I just read a piece that really brought me back to somewhere I did not want to go back to... It brought me to places I didn't want to think about and didn't want to see. Anyone who knows me well will understand, and to those who don't, take it for what it takes you for. Not everything is meant to be understood, but everything is understood to be meant. Enough of the philosophical yammering on my part, so read away. Enjoy!

Crying late at night

As the visions swim

The words you write

Take me to where I’ve been

I hear the thunder roll

Calling me back,

Darkness takes its toll

Time’s lost track

Space is only a thin disguise

For what we can’t erase

What’s lost in your eyes

What’s run down your face

I’m crying vibrant tears

Senseless and lost

For all my silent fears

Sealed away in the permafrost

This reddened nightmare

Chases me like dark to dawn

Gives me these marks to wear

Gives me this look so drawn

So here I writhe

Hold back my screams

So that I may survive

Because they're only dreams...
