Time to show some sharper teeth Time to grow a thicker skin

we're sleepin' go away
All I want to do is get through this.

“Time to drop the seventh veil and let some madness wander in
This is not a darker age Just the turning of the wheel
I am here to reassure we never really had control
This world was never kind
Separate your present mind”

The idea of everything that I thought I could count on has been shaken to the core. I am tired of waiting, tired of being stuck with the only viable way out so far down the tunnel that there’s not even a gleam of light from it yet. This is maddening. I am indeed fiercely impatient, to the point of great anger.

Lies destroy everything. Everything I’ve had, everything I’ve loved and believed in has been tainted and sullied by liars. Liars are the most selfish, self-absorbed people in the world – how is it that I’ve been surrounded by them? All I’ve ever asked for is the truth, even if it is a painful truth… it will be less painful by far than a pleasant lie, because eventually the lie will be revealed and the pain will be even more acute.

“Time to show some sharper teeth Time to grow a thicker skin
Time to drop the seventh veil and let some madness wander in.
What is luxury today will be necessity tomorrow
This is not a way of life Your future past betrays its values
This world was never kind
Separate your present mind”

Another thing destroyed by my life built on lies: the comfort that I finally lived in, after so many years of deprivation. Luxuries that I no longer can afford, yet cannot live without… a decent meal and a meaningful touch are both out of my budget, so to speak. I long for what I took for granted, luxuriating in the solace provided by untruths. The palace of my desires collapsed like it was built from a pack of cards.

Can you hear me speaking, over the endless trilling of thoughts spilling, unheeded, from your own mouth? Will you dare to look deeper, or be satisfied listening to your own voice? Are you so afraid to look at yourself, to look at me and see the truths there before us?

Do this one thing for me…

lyrics by Faith and the Muse

I write, as openly as possible, about my experiences with life, love, creativity, depression and not-depression. I share opinions. I promote compassion and change. I talk about music. I also write poetry and short stories. I like to share them here.
