Thy forsooth.

Blinded
Blinded, but in hindsight
The feelings I've had before
Were far missed tonight
Than ever before
I've been blinded
By a piercing light
It broke the darkness
Where I used to hide
A sonnet I write
A ballad I sing
In all truthfulness
I'm worth nothing
I owe nothing
I feel nothing
I fear...everything
I write for myself
It's the last thing I can
For my own peace
I prolong the timespan
Of my reclusive behavior
I spend my years
Stargazing at night
But recently I was blinded by a piercing light
I've been blinded, but in hindsight.
All the feelings I took for granted, are missed tonight.

Grey
7 years ago, it was all colourful.
Nowadays, it's nothing but shades of black and white.
And then again, it's never black and white.
Everything is, despite our best efforts, grey.
Nothing is ever straight.
Life itself became stranger, no right&wrong.
There are always sides to every story.
Nothing ever feels as simple at all.
People cover their vulnerabilities, pretend to be strong.
The insides of their souls are bloody, gory.
Yet again, they pretend that nothing is wrong at all.
No one admits to themselves the mistakes.
Everything remains grey.
Everyone remains stranded, estranged.
Branded with flames in their hearts, pain.
They force smiles, pretending to be okay.
People look into the small things, and try to smile.
Birds chirping, water flowing, clear skies.
Starry nights, carefree rides, no fights.
The older we grow, the simpler we become.
Yet, we become much more complex.
We choose to sacrifice our joy, to protect...
Ourselves. To perceive our softness, our core.
Searching for the right people to share it all...
To share it all with, and smile.
Return the colours to our lives...
Things stop being shades of black&white.
Right&wrong become apparent, and wow, it's strange...
That once we stop being fake, thing stop being grey.

Falling into a dream
Years pass, times go
Iron rusts, winds blow
Fire crackles, sky's clear
Everything's alright, yet somehow...
You still fear
Fear the future, fear the past
Fear everything that you represent
Fear yourself, fear your masks
Afraid of even the present
You sleep, lucid dreams
And even then you're still afraid
You're in control, everything's yours
Yet somehow you still wind up dead
In your own dreams you're immersed
In your own fear you're submerged
You try to breathe but you suffocate yourself
Breathless, in need of help
Yet for some reason, you push help away
Wanna know why? You're still afraid
In your lucid dreams, you're in control
Yet you let the dream roll
Because in there, you have a choice
So you choose to live it all
Out there, you feel alone
Vulnerable to damage, afraid to fall
It's ironic how you fall into a dream
But in life you don't make the calls

Paradigm
Rinse, repeat, deja vu
Everyday I live the same situations
Live, sleep, me and you
I only recently came to the realization
That the sweetest of lies
Are soured by the truth
Wish our lives were as simple as animations
A frame where we're happy, a frame sad
The drama increases just a tad
Showcasing our progress, and all of that
God, I wish we weren't living in a paradigm
Feels like we're stuck out of time
Out of space
Out of life
In a race
To...survive
It took a dark turn a while back
That's not speculation, that's a fact
Because you have no idea what I've been through
To reach you, you've got not clue
The happiness in blue moons
The hardships and dark boons
The stepping stones and crushing boots
All of this was a time-bomb
Waiting for detonation
I played along
These situations
In my deja vus
Came the realization
That we're living out of time
Living in a paradigm
Everything repeats itself
Nothing new
Experiences, the same...​

Silhouettes
In the darkness of my home
I saw
A silhouette move slow
It approached the window
I heard a body hit the floor
I ran towards the window
Couldn't believe what I saw
For a body was lying there
That body was my own
I saw a forest in the distance
Chariots of fire too
I saw my home in the distance
Somehow I floated through
The chariots came close
And my home grew far
I left behind me things
That'll remain as they are
Untouched by time
For I lived alone
Nobody cared who I was
Or where I came from
Like a ghost I appeared
One day I disappeared
People wondered who I was
A silhouette on the floor
In the streets my body laid
But I didn't feel afraid
As the chariots approached
Peace encompassed my soul
I floated away towards the forest
I went
For tonight was the last page
And where my story ends
But every ending
Is a start of it's own
I may be a silhouette
But I am my own
