The Beauty of the Muse - Lost Treasures ReDux

Lost Treasures

“The Beauty of the Muse”
By: The Dead Poet

Whisper to me your secret, I promise to keep it.
Confess your fear, and what you love as you have my ear.
Just close your eyes, the world evaporates and reality dies.

“There lies a sleeping beauty in her ivory casket
Beautiful and innocent to the brutality around her
As her hero becomes trapped within the devil's fortress.”

So much pain has passed through this soul of mine,
breaching the gates, using the same worn out line.
I suffer from a chemical imbalance,
Your stupidity bolstering your unbreakable chalice
No matter what is to be said, nothing will sway how you feel
a criminal mastermind for a heart you just had to steal.
Holding it within your hands, was crushing it part of your plans?
I am sorry I was not what you wanted or expected,
that my mind a haunted playground had you already rejected.

“This reality, only seems to fade away
tunnel vision when I am within eyesight of you.
Losing all sense of time, as the night fades into the day.
Becoming lost within the beauty of the muse.”

If we were not meant to last, you shall exist within my past.
The memories over time will decay, as shadows creep into my mind to play.
Leaving doubts, planting seeds of distrust.
Now becoming lost within a forest of thought,
Seeing gods; where ashes to ashes and dust to dust
Seeing a soul; that has become hopelessly lost.

“I had once saw the crystal clear blue skies above,
I had even once gave my heart over to unconditional love.
Not once, not twice, not even a third time but many, many more.
For in this life it would seem to be the only sane thing to die for.
