Screaming Souls

Screaming Souls


Sanity begging for relief

Sitting in obscurity,

Listening to emptiness…


Time passes… memories fade

Into the unfamiliar, silence stirring

Amidst the din of desolation…


Demons in the sky hide behind promises,

Their breath dark, wayward hours stand

Still in awkwardness…


Man waiting for the moment

In the grayness of tarnished hours to

Find reality…


Peace dissolved in crimson waves…

Stillness overcome by screaming souls

Searching for a leader...
