Beyond the crave for death


All I sought was first,


Weep-not my newborn soul


Where fireflies shine lighter than the lamps


And fishes swam faster than their homes


Like  trampled troubled tramps,


Then, demons also cry.



Groans and moans of pain,


Down they roam like rain


Memories sparked with flashes of feisty flare


For all that is left is nothing but darkness


Piercing the thread of our bond


That even angels dare not dare


Then, demons also cry



Here, days brimmed with sadness


To miscarriage of nights darkness


That even birds glide backward


And when asked why, we say, its nature to nurture


Conscience lye frozen in muss, has God punished us?


Que sera, sera and all go wayward,


Then, demons are also crying
