Masquerade

by Momentary Relapse   Jan 30, 2006


Wraith with deceiving prowess
Shards of anger embedded within
Obscured immortality fading
Cleanse the soul from this sin

Unholy demon of eternal flame
Delve deep to find nothing inside
Forsworn enemy of imperfections
Infecting the mind to flee and hide

Cryptic warnings difficult to preceive
Doubt a bitter remedy of desire
False circumstances full of malice
The flames of eternity no longer inspire

Consequence of immortal passion
Bloodlust of sadistic pleasure
Pallor of death another masquerade
A lost soul for eternal treasure

Honesty fades as it is broken
Subconscious plight amends due
Full of malice and full of scorn
Paranoia a destructive way to subdue

Lacerate flesh with fatal kisses
Almandite eyes incipient wraith
Blood from the immortal womb
Disputed changes of forgotten faith

Clandestine immolations of life
The lament of an unaffectionate death
Weeping once with almandite tears
Everlasting stillness of immortal breath
