Treasure Island

Lucifera Santez

(4th feb / Belize)

Creature


It is a cold world,
All this pain,
All this rage,
Do you know its my homage?
Yeah that’s what I have become,
A creature feeding on despair,
A freak relishing in pain,
You made me this,
Don’t you remember,
You fashioned this deranged me,
After you burned my soul,
And trapped me in this hideous mortality,
So yes I laugh when I should cry,
I give up when I should try,
You broke me,
And now here I am,
Celebrating my downfall with yet another sin,
Grandly for world to see………………….

    In Lucifera's mirror
    I see myself a creature
    That crept from desks gratified
    And tried to be the teacher
    But soon became the student
    And them became a dream
    And then a stupid nightmare
    Where walls are velveteen.
    O Lucifera's mirror
    A kiss for your reflection
    Or worthy of remembrance
    In all the world's perception.
    Are we but eve-less dawns
    Or English theme-less songs
    My weakness, seems less strong
    As I accept my wrongs
    And me, I see more clearer
    In Lucifera's mirror.

    I do not believe it is a cold world yet oh there are some COLD and callous humans out there. But life is about survival and can we survive it? Thank you Lucifera (Report) Reply

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
