    demons got me stressing overtime
    questions and doubts filling my mind
    apprehensions and misconceptions
    leading to momentary indiscretions

    give me back my mind i scream
    but it's really my heart that's lost
    why can't i wake from this godawful dream?
    cause i sold my soul and can't remember the cost

    depression and madness diseases with no cure
    caught in the balance where neither good nor evil is sure
    in the closet or out makes no difference in the end
    cause where it all stops is still where it all begins

    i never knew there'd be days like this
    they weren't in the stories mama told
    never knew my life would be anything less than bliss
    daddy never explained how it felt to get old

    voices in the night reminding me of your face
    while out of the corner of my eye i see a ghost
    strut in and take a seat at your place
    making me wish i could run back to the west coast

    not much for fears, portents, or signs
    maybe i'll calm down if i write a few lines
    but the words are forgotten, and the rhymes won't flow
    parlez vous francais, forget the anglais, no?

    the haitian goddess voodoo queen bows down
    feeling like a zombie, witch man done ate my soul
    i know the gold i'm holding used to be my crown
    but now it's just a ring of blood around a pitch black hole

    the past's got me tripping, falling, running scared
    black lorelei floating, head shaved, breasts bared
    there was a door to this cave, but i sealed it long ago
    and if you've followed me this far, i'm sure i'll never let you go

    Whoa!!!!!! Blaquebutterfli, I am utterly speechless....
    I realize the tone of what you communicate, not to ignore
    but your writing skillz have me floored..........this was
    an incredible mental journey you took me on...........

    Heartbreakingly agonizing but Beautiful all the same!

    Officially Wowed, Angelic, I’m loving this piece!
