    Forged

    I was comfortablely numb
    Surrounded by forged walls
    No escape plan was needed
    Yet you dismantled my walls
    Saved me from myself and
    All my anxious delusions

    Dil ki baat

    Ae dil tu kyu use galat nhi maan sakta

    S(no)w (e)scape

    Rumble rumble rumble!
    The avalanche is coming.

    Tumble tumble tumble!
    Emotions start cartwheeling.

    Grumble grumble grumble!
    As promises start trailing.

    Trouble trouble trouble!
    Forevers are crumbling.

    Fumble fumble fumble!
    With words that are no longer healing.

    A jumble jumble jumble!
    This labyrinth of feelings.

    Bubbles bubbles bubbles!
    Only growing bigger and never popping.

    Shuffle shuffle shuffle!
    Through this playlist of memories unending.

    Labels labels labels!
    Of the stubborn past never peeling.

    Humble humble humble!
    Once were this love's beginnings.

    So simple simple simple!
    Till expectations started barging.

    Subtle subtle subtle!
    Were the mixed signals hearts were receiving.

    Little by little by little
    The cold started encroaching.

    Icicles icicles icicles!
    Grew thicker with each misunderstanding.

    Battles battles battles!
    Where every victory was a losing.

    Sweet sweet truffle!
    Too frosty for the feasting.

    Happy happy couple!
    Too enamored to heed the warnings.

    Amidst the scuffles and ruffles
    Balls of hatred started snowballing.

    Futile hustle bustle
    As frostbite started settling.

    Love in shambles shambles shambles!
    And a silent spectator to disaster incoming.

    Finally gobble gobble gobble!
    The avalanche devoured hearts like dumplings.

    I had to let go of a lot of things in my life

    In the process I let go of me

    I've been on a journey to discover the authentic me that I lost by my own doing. The me that was strong in my belief of who I was. The me who believed in believing.

    Digging deep within myself has brought me relentless pain
    Searching through the hollowness of my life has left me with a aching numbness that is pulling me down to my own darkness which I've created.

    This darkness kept me protected, or so I thought

    The darkness kept the facade alive

    Peeling through layers upon layers of all the emotions I so desperately tried to ignore led me to a place of angst

    I will not escape without more scars

    Fighting for my life against the darkness

    Muted Horror

    "White is Black and Black is White"

    Blank ... empty ... numb ... I am waking up from an ear-splitting silence, returning from no man's land. I am surrounded by an unbearable white noise that seems to kill off everything that approaches me. I try to focus. My body is aching, every muscle is in burning pain. Still I have to be brave, I have to move, escape my silent prison ... but I can't. Something is holding me back like an invincible force.
    How is this possible?
    I try to open my eyes, every millimeter is a battle, a war against agony and gravity but I have to face it. Suddenly a heavy pain hits me as I am blinded by a bright glistening white light. I am struggeling to stay strong, to hold on ... but I can't and my eyes fall back into darkness.
    I can't stay here like this, I have to brace myself for this barbarous sharp pain and open my eyes again. It is the only way. Silent screams escape my lips as my eyes are torn apart by the light. Tears start running down my cheeks but I have to bear it, I have to stay strong. So I lie and wait until my eyes come back to life ...
    Glancing at the ceiling ... white. Trying to move my head a little bit but my brain is muted by pain again. Staring at the walls ... white.
    Am I in heaven?
    Am I dead?
    I doubt they would pin me down to my bed over there. My arms and legs are tied up with some strong leather straps bound by heavy iron buckles, making my hands and my feet feel numb. I can't move a finger or a toe.
    What happened to me?
    Where am I?
    And how did I get here?
    So many questions are running through my head but my brain still feels like a vacuum. Think ... Focus ... What are the last things I can remember?

    I see myself walking down a lonely avenue. There is no one around, no house, no car, not even a bird is singing. The road is dusty and every step I take, sparks a little cloud of filth over the ground. The air feels hot and heavy, it is hard to breathe. I keep going, not remembering what was my destination anyway. And then there it is ... A small house.
    At first I think it to be an illusion, that the heat has made my brain weak, but the closer I step, the more real it becomes. It looks very shabby, some windows are broken, many roof tiles have fallen off, the walls are covered in dirt. This house must have been abandoned for many years already.
    As I am stepping closer no sound can be heard. I guess I am all by myself out here. Walking around the house, peeking through the shattered windows ... Nothing. I am about to leave when I am struck by surprise and horror at the same time. There it is ... A totally surreal yet fascinating scene.
    A pair of lovers, a woman and a man I guess, standing in one of the rooms. He is dressed in a black suit with a white shirt and a black tie, looking formal, stern, intimidating. She is wearing a red dress with some pieces of white lace, leaving her arms bare and vulnerable, looking pretty, delicate, fragile. The man is holding her in a tight embrace while they are united in an innocent kiss. He seems to be in a dominant position as the woman is leaning her head upwards to meet his lips. Together they look like the metaphor of a merge of love and death, completely lost in each other.
    Still this bizarre scene leaves me struck by horror and disgust. Their faces are covered with a white scarf, erasing their individuality, stealing their humanity, turning romance into perversion. Like two contrary forces being confronted, the closeness through love and the impossibility to communicate. Everything is muted, there is no intimacy, just a blank space.
    Maybe the woman has been kidnapped and is forced to be here.
    Maybe this is part of some cult's sick ritual.
    What is happening here?
    Should I save her?
    I continue to observe the scene, unable to look away. No movement is visible, no breathing, no heartbeat.
    Am I going mad?
    Is this even real?
    Maybe it's a statue, a piece of art that someone has forgotten over here a long time ago.
    Wait ... Did the man just shake a little?
    He is slowly moving his head towards the window. I am terrified, there is nothing but white emptiness. No eyes, no nose, no lips, no ears, all senses muted, no face can be seen. I try to scream but my voice gets stuck in my throat, unable to be released. Panic is rising ... My heart is racing ... I am breathing heavily ... I can't move ... I am doomed.
    The world around me starts spinning in circles and everything turns black. Then I must have passed out because the next thing I remember, is waking up in this room.
    Black turned into White

    I am lost in my memories, still trying to put the pieces together, when I hear the noise of cracking locks being opened and footsteps getting closer. I am trying to move my head but there is no one to be seen and everything around me is falling silent again. Maybe I was hallucinating.
    Time keeps passing by without a trace of hope and I am sure that my mind is playing tricks on me ...
    Until a familiar whitened face appears in front of me, Once again I am struck by horror, fear and panic are washing over me in huge waves. I try to move but there is no way to escape. The face shows a silent and merciless laughter. His invisible mouth wide open, turning into an endless white void.
    He is moving closer to my face and my screams are muted by my own voice. I can't get away. He is pulling out another white scarf, getting closer ... Closer ... Closer ... Touching my face ... It is too late ...

    -- Peninsula --

    Why am I stranded in this piece of land?
    To which there's only one way from there, nowhere to go
    As if it's a dead-end, surrounded by deadly strands
    Impassable, as it treats trespassers like foes

    Oh, wonderful shadows of black and gray
    Was I too foolish to be met with sun rays?
    Am I so unusual to be here, from then on?
    You ask for solitude, as if I should begone

    My body of ineptitude wants to do so anyway
    But you leave me no choice, but to go back, astray
    No other way to surpass, I'm blocked off
    In this peninsula of life, I fly back like the moths

    My fridge.

    My fridge rattles, it gnaws at my patience.
    It's a good fridge but it's fucking rattling.
    Enrages me.
    I try everything to make it stop. Leaning things against it, wedging stuff beneath it. Filled or empty, the rattles do not cease. If I touch it, they stop. I can not sleep. I hold myself back from destroying it. I notice its rattles only at night. To taunt at me. It's a good fridge. But at night the rattles madden me.

    No Escape

    We move places to free ourselves from all our problems. But there is one thing everyone forgets.....we can't escape from our problems. Our problems follow us everywhere we go. We can't escape from them. There is no escape. All we can do is let it be and forget about it.....

    True loneliness is...
    Desperately searching
    Through infomercials
    And old sitcoms at 2am
    Because the silence of your bed
    Is deafening.
    True loneliness is...
    when the dreams inside your head
    Are muddled by your heart
    And are just too painful
    For you to fall asleep.
    True loneliness is...
    Remembering the good times
    And then being gutted by the truth
    That now they are gone,
    Never to be seen,
    Never to be heard,
    Never to be felt,
    Ever again.

    No Escape

    Life
    This feel like handcuffs
    Life
    From the sky
    To the ground
    The earth
    Is like a prison
    No Escape
    Unless you die
    And
    Nobody wants to really do that

    NO ESCAPE

    The nighttime breaks me
    My problems wanna wake me
    These demons try to take me

    Responsability acadamy
    Got me studying reality
    Ain't schooled in psychology

    My soul is slowly breaking
    There's really no escaping
    Thoughts that try to rape me

    The nighttime breaks me
    My problems wanna wake me
    These demons try to take me

    We're all Angels,
    But we hide our Wings away inside,

    Only those
    Who can see through our walls,
    Who really care about US,
    Who we really love,
    Can see their real beauty.

    Our Beauty.
