Age Group: Adult

Coming beating about
the brush rises into black flame
I’m home, it’s been too long—
why do I want to be here? come with me
wipe away your tears,
and welcome back home…

I’m not really present, am I
letting echoes riddle through me once again
it’s becoming my personalized cliché
to keep remembering again and again
I’m getting stereotypical
as compared to myself…

The subtle wave of subsidiary change…
isn’t washing me away…

Bearing my lost divine light
that I’d been given, that I hold tight
I sit in the attic
as it floats down the stream of life
in a boat of dreams, why do I still
believe in all of it after all this time?

Why do I feel that it’s all somewhere a lie
I keep running in circles, is that all
there is to life? come memory,
come salvation, come soothing
and then comes the damnedest feeling
of coming back home…
I’m home, it’s been too long—
why do I want to be here? come with me
wipe away your tears,
and welcome back home…

My jaw suddenly aches in the peripheral light
that’s covered by the clouds so that it sifts
lighting all the dirt and dust that rises around your feet
as you step onto long forgotten streets
the creatures come out and greet you with joy…
welcome home again, you’ll like it we’re sure
it hasn’t changed at all
it’s filled with damnation and life
it’s been waiting
for its mistress to return…

Scatter Mistress that I be,
I’ve come back to this black sea
where lies all my darkness and all my light
in which I’m at home…

Don’t pointlessly waste my faith
come here and speak to me before its too late
the laws of this land are still on
so quick, win my grace and enter my service
before I take down the walls
that separate the hell on the one side
and the peace and quiet starting from the gate’s maw
don’t you wonder which side you are on?

I’m not staring at you for no reason
let the blindfold down
don’t touch the cloth of your dress in distress
here I am still Lady of all—
answer me: what’s with this new place?
what is it, a museum for all things lost?
those things should be gone without a trace!
what’s taking all you scurrying ants so long!

Watch, now the bell tolls the middle of night
where the vampires of desire being their flight
they alight on all your shut eyes,
and gnaw away your fears and your despise—
“enter the real world, see it all as it is
there’s nothing to gain from restraint, ”
they whisper this…
can’t you hear the incredible roaring crunch and creak
of the giant wheels slowly beginning to turn
can’t you feel the encumbering weight
of the gates as they pull open the giant maw…
here, come see… it’s all as it was
it’s all you’ve ever ignored
“welcome home, Scatter Mistress…
“welcome back to the dark side…”
