Same Shit Only in Reverse

Time Within Time

If I say it enough will it come true
Self-full filling prophecy made up of dreams
Been looking in a mirror saying it over and over
And yet the image doesn’t change
Still the same asshole as yesterday
Hopes and prayers are for our children
Praying and kneeling are the same things
Neither is ever enough in the end
Always left wanting more
Dying in my knees or laying on my back
Always taking something I can’t swallow
The pills stop working yet still digesting
Overdosing on the hopes this pain could ever go away
I want more than the blood could ever sustain
An endless parade marching through the dark
Hollowed out lies that can no longer maintain
The truth of why anyone has to feel this way
Giving it a minute hasn’t produced any evidence
That any part of anything is worth it

Inside the Vain

Does it ever really end
The nightmare that began
Over and over, repeating in sin
Repeating in secret
Not sure where this begins
Surely know how it should end
The sadness is deafening
A silence upheld by those passing moments
Encircle me to stay within
Breaching walls made of flesh
All hail the everlasting gaze
Missing the joy that is death
Find the fun only to go insane
Malice and spite, live in fear
Of all the thoughts surrounding me
Opinions become weapons, our hands useless
Fear the walking dead
Fear what became and what it is
To understand

  1. Crushing stuff, man. How can all this pain be inside one person? I prescribe you one hour of Scenes From A Hat clips from Whose Line Is It Anyway?

      1. Good!!! More than an hour of happy laughter. Think about that every time you’re down. Then… Watch some Anthony Jeselnik specials on Netflix. It will be the perfect blend of darkness and humor. I promise, you will love him.

  2. Mr Bear… we talked about this… “Been looking in a mirror saying it over and over
    And yet the image doesn’t change
    Still the same asshole as yesterday” you aren’t an arsehole… you just look like an arsehole… RDF be strong. Wear it like a badge of honor!

    Nah but seriously. This was awesome. So dark. Your mind must be a frightening place, dearest… but I know there is mostly sweetness in there xxx

  3. You keep astounding me with your..self.

    Darkness and a sliver of light are the hardest things to balance but you are a pro.
    Sometimes, I’m not sure why you like MY stuff!!! JK, I know it’s because I’m so fucking delightful and charming
