Different, Almost

In another life, people would say “He¬†was a good man.”
Scoundrel in others
Hopeless romantic throughout many
The true personification of evil, once
A weary old soul caught in the cycle, just like all the others
Head filled with dreams that aren’t really dreams but fragments of lives now dust
I wonder how they will remember me this time around.

Digging deep

Today is one with little left in the tank
Yesterday took it all too far
Each time it’s all left on the floor more and more time is needed
Is this the sign of how long I’ve got left
Or perhaps it’s something else
If they asked I’d do it all again
And again, and again, and, again
Summoning up all that remains
Going beyond what is conceivably left and thought possible
One last burst of glorious flame
Then finally it’ll all be over

Decade Dream Reborn

It’s been over a decade since last this happened
The fight never ending
Hoards of endless thoughts and past regrets
Unable to overcome or surpass them
In the distance I could see him
The one that started it all
Time stood still, my enemies froze
In this dream of mine I finally did it again
I took full control
No longer just there watching it play out
No longer only able to control a little here and there
No longer was the dream my prison
I took full control because this is my world
Casting off the invisible bindings
The ground beneath me began to sink
Exploding in to the sky and perching the clouds towards him
Faster than before
Stronger than before
I saw his face clear as my own reflection
“Time to wake up” he said
You won’t get away, not again
Tonight I’m coming for you
Tonight we end this.

Endless Foes & Mighty Blows

Last night was an endless fight
One after another they came
My blows started off mighty
Soon they became weaker and weaker
The onslaught was relentless
Forward I pressed on
Every one I fell take a toll
Paying the price with every blow my vision began to blur
Slower all movement became
With no end in sight I had no other choice
Thus I continued to fight
