Satan’s Bed

It’s not all been said, been said and done.I’ve never slept in Satan’s bed.Although, I must admit, still visits my place.Uninvited, as you know he don’t wait.Funny how he always seems to fit in.Funny how I always want to give in.Sundays, Fridays, Tuesdays, Thursdays the same.Sometimes this special guest he […]

Nothingman

Once divided. Nothing left to subtract.Some words when spoken can’t be taken back.Walks on his own with thoughts he can’t help thinking.Future’s above, but in the past he’s slow and sinking.Caught a bolt of lightning. Cursed the day he let it go. Nothingman… (x2)Isn’t it something, nothingman? She once believed […]
