In the shadows you seek out a way
to ease your weighty thoughts
Aching for the world to sway
with you in a sweet lymphatic motion

Feel the world melt away around you
Like it was all just one bad dream
Just keep breathing like you do
And crumble away into sweet release

Listen to the little flowers
Listen to them cry
Begging you to chase the dragon
and drive it from the sky

Your pulse is slow your mind is gone
All the trembling has subsided
In here your body and soul are one
Out there you are divided

Listen to the little flowers
Listen to them beg
leave behind your den of fears
and taste the lovely poppy tears

You've tried to stop
but what can you do
You either chase the dragon
or the dragon chases you

Listen to the little flowers
Listen to them cry
Begging you the chase the dragon
and drive it from the sky
Listen to the little flowers
Listen to them beg
leave behind your den of fears
and taste the lovely poppy tears
I wrote this a while back.  What started off as a poem about emotional abandonment and taking what you need turned into a poem about opium addiction... I don't have any idea how the hell that happened.  My brain just went sort of crazy.

Anyway, I haven't posted anything too recently so... yeah.


I'm also going to use this post to promote my friend, Collin's, band 'Enemies Will Fall'.  Right now there are only a few demos and the process of getting more songs posted is spaced and at times can seem like it's inactive.  However, Collin is working hard, and mostly on his own, composing his work and promoting it himself.  

Enemies Will Fall is a metal band founded by Collin Wolford and can be found on facebook by clicking the link below.  The second link is to their site on ReverbNation.

Expect to see this band sprinkled in here and there since I promised to help him promote his band.  I adore that dork and his work is good so I figured it's the least I can do.
