Phantoms

---- IMAGE REMOVED because photobucket.com no longer allows embedded images ----
Following a new direction letting these pages lead the way
From the beginning of my existence to where I find my final resting place
Swallowing a shade of colors to give flavor to a tasteless life
As I open up my insides and reject the poisoned lies
Then I listen to the whispers becoming such a sweet melody
Finding a new understanding of my demons soliloquies
Conquering the reflections of a mask worn in denial
Dividing his deception with a dismal smile
And as a mountain that stands before me its heights I will overcome
Climbing out from the shadows of me standing in my own sun
So I close my eyes and disappear just to see Your perfect face
Me standing against the phantoms in their darkest hiding place

When I was little I was afraid of ghosts. I would sit by the door in the hallway and watch tv since it was forbidden to eat in the living room. The doorway to my bedroom would have to be shut so I didn't have to keep wondering if a ghost was going to appear.hole crazy jackolantern
