Alter ego


sunken idols

The moments i captured are the birds that flew away

the promises i gave are the sins of today

the houses i lived in are the prisons of my past

the faces i remember are some stranger’s cast

the smiles i showed are the nightmares i hided

the lies i told are the paradise i landed

the kisses i gave are the fights i lost

the laughs i shared are my secret ghost

the paths i crossed are the dreams i swept

the words i spoke are the secrets i kept

the love i received are the friendships i failed

the lands i ploughed are the oceans i sailed

the obsessions i buried are the monotony i am in

the passions i owned are the scarecrows i’ve seen

the fears i tamed are the reasons i cried

the mornings i got up are the nights i died

the moments i am here are the ones i am away

the words i dislike are the ones i say

the life i live is a song from the past

the melodies i sing will not last


fragmented idols

scheming enigmas

Their thoughts like symplegades of fear and lust

clashing with each other for the pain to last

And their wide- open eyes with no sight

reluctant to see their light

And their squeezed fists with no dare

unable to fight for all they share

And their lungs high as the sky, blue

with no window to fly through

And their lips zipped with a threat

bleeding from cowardice and regret

And their hearts like cenotaphs of neglected desires

burying passions with their fires

And their brains like melting pots

boiling curses and evil plots

And their veins like rotten roots

fresh- cut grass downtrodden by iron boots

And their mind hacked by a ranger

spreading viruses of danger

And their souls like fireworks of despair

empty graves with no air

And their mouths like hurricanes of spit

twisting words with shit

And their faces like the mirrors of hell

hiding all that they could tell
