There is no truth. To say this in some places and circles is blasphemy or a reason to be called a heretic. But to ignore the glaring falsehood among us is to trust the light.

 The light creates the darkness. It generates a blinding corona that burns away sight and reason with a totality of a god. To have only darkness is blindness. It is so also with only light.

 Light and darkness complete each other to make shapes and forms, colors and shades. The line between the to is draw by our intentions to find an ultimate truth to subservience to a being, thing, or ourselves.

I say to you a question then: why fight the darkness? Is it wrong? Or is it just what the light tells us?

 The decisions we make
The paths we choose
The destruction in our wake
Flames that dance around us

After a while
They define us
Make us who we are
Until we can never go back

The prints we leave
The bodies turned to ashes
After the sun falls
Someone must lead the darkness

If the light defines us
Shows the difference in us
In the shadows we are the same
We can never go back

Someone told me once
That they stared into the abyss
What they don't know
Is that the abyss isn't emptiness

We are the abyss
Looking at us is the emptiness you feel
Even as you stare into the abyss
We can never come back

Our paths are parallel
Leading to the death we know is just
Yours to the bright future
Defined by edges of the black

We die alone
Twisted, bloody, broken things
We go out too far
The light rejects us

And we miss it
You scream us to come back for hope
Stop staring we are gone
And we can never go back
You know this feeling
The pain
The hopelessness that follows

Focus...
On me
I have always been there
For you

When you called out to the demon Zycreeion
I protected you
When you bleed your self to the moon
And held your bleeding skin to the stars
I made you see sense

We will always be together
For you can't escape what is inside you

I compressed your grief over Mya
I cauterized your wounds
We stayed up for nights
I saw your tears
And bore your fire

At the sheer point of nothingness
I am you
You are me
Focus...

If you give them things
Will they like you
If you sacrifice for them
Will they thank you for it
If you love them hard enough
Will you want to kill them less
If you destroy you to please them
Will they change

Stop asking these questions
You're asking the impossible

You think you have friends
You think they care
Will they hold you crying
Can they pull you up
Break your chains
Love you?

I am all you are
Everything and nothing at all
There is no truth
There is only loss
So I guess that's the truth

All these lives
All these faces I've worn
Was it worth it?

To lose my love
To succumb to violence
Or accept this bitter hatred

These voices are my friends
My lover
My only allies

They are also my greatest enemy
Making me second guess what is right
Whispering me to coldness

They say look at those dead eyes
Or only I can love you
Or you aren't worthy enough for them

I am my own degradation
My knowledge is my world
And it is also my prison

Grew up, woke up. I see the world for the way that it needs to be seen by other people. My eyes see the violence of emotion and the sound of colors and the taste of pain. I feel hopeful of the future
