Poems by Western Extremity


Dissonance

Everything that comes out of me
Comes out of me deformed.

Nobody's watering me
Can feel my veins choking on viscous blood
Can feel scores down my face made with scissors

Everything that comes out of me
Comes out of me deformed.

Never Qualify
Never

Everything that comes out of me

You've already guessed the next line



The State of Pain

It goes against everything I ever thought
It shakes the truths I've been taught
As the snow falls outside
I think I'm going to die tonight
As everything is covered in white
The horizon shimmers
Like it's in the haze of heat
But I'm afraid that's just me
Rotten to the deepest depths of the brain
It pushes the button I'm shocked to uncover
The agonising pains the struggle to cope and arrest the hope
Of ever getting through it

I think I'm going to die tonight
As everything is covered in white
The leaves have fallen into nothing
The eyes that retreated from my presence are comfortable now

I stand in the snow
I'm white on the outside
But I'm not pure at all
I'm not pure at all
Especially on the inside

Stood in the snow
Beginning to freeze over
I really don't care for myself anymore

Cryogenics and mutants; I am one with the best of them
Please comfort me

I think I'm going to die tonight
The stars have wished their dismay on me
The roads have bent too many times
The people have wagered their bets against me

I can feel it building
If I don't die tonight
Will your beautiful face be waiting for me in the morning light?



Exit to Existence

Sleep inside eternal winter
Wind attacks the cave down in a whitened fern
Heather whips throughout
Coldness reaches into my blood
Huddle in myself to find a bit of warmth
A warmth I can't find
Know there's no place for me
(There's no place for me)
I need to be in your arms but
Your body lies here
The last time I will see you
Lifeless in your death temple

Gazes of pain
Gazes of pain
Spit, I'm trash, uncover the truth
You don't want me; I'm not good enough to bring you back

Golden chrome sky
Sunset on a Sunday green summer day
Perfection is gone without you
You know I need you
Retina finds no light in my inadequacy
Can't find the way out
Exit to existence
Brilliant burning behind the eyes
Suntan charms caress waves
Like a reddening of the skin
Points and sticks to another ones life
Speak in whispers; tone escapes the ear

Gazes of pain
Gazes of pain
Falling from mediocrity
Know the story of my future already
I'm broken without you

I fell to the ground and grazed my knee
It didn't matter to me because all hope has been lost
With the end times hanging heavy on the night
I'm not a child of yours
I'm not a being of the sunrise

Existence slowly slips away
From a treasured place to a forgotten alley
My rotten fruit stall and every raindrop hides a gaze of pain
Hides another soul-stain
I'm unclean
I write to fill a void
I'm unclean
I don't deserve the body I'm in
I'm mentally unclean
Break the seal for a taste of purity
The people I've hurt I don't want to have mercy
On me



In Your Sympathy

From every face I hide
From every picture I escape
With every fascination disconnect
I can't build anything that lasts
Making the decisions decay
I want to run awayfrom you
I want to run awayfrom you
The voice holds nothing; I can't pretend
The longer it draws on it's like a knife from
Stomach to neck
Ear to ear
Every memory of you is fire
No wonder you liked the dissent of her
No wonder you still like the dissent of her

Deconstruction of one
Every reason is clear
Now you can see
What do you think of my extending frailty?

Take the estrangement with a coke
I can marry my little present of rebuke
Wherever there's a snakeskin shed
Degrades a lie of what you always said
Would hold true, like our sweet little horde
Our sweet little army, our sweet little flock of words
Ready to attack it only requires the trigger
Can you pull? Can you pull?
Oh I want you to pull
Oh I want you to pull
And forget it all
And forget it all
And forget it all
Forget me now
I want you to

It stays with me throughout the night
Every image of your perfect face
So delicately sealed in a box I can't open nor break
To get to you I don't even know if it's you inside
I can't remember the sound of your voice
I can't get past this mountain foreboding
They say bad news comes in threes, so where's the last one?
May as well work till death, is money my only saviour?
(I never thought I'd say it, but I guess it would have to be something inanimate)

Feel the descending, in your stomach, washed up on the beach
The sea won't let me drown, but I can't float, stuck in-between death and light
Which one's life?
You'd be a fool to pick light
You'd be a fool to pick light
You'd be a fool to pick light

And kindness is there for a reason
It's not innate; you have yourself to feed
Graduate with disease in eloquence
You can't see the spreading
Everything I have is fading and it's so funny
It's so funny now I have nothing

It only takes buried facts to grab at your chest
Feel further up, fingers in the oesophagus
And while they pull, you can hold my hand
For in the end it's the ultimate disgrace
For in the end it's the ultimate disgrace
And I'll never go where you take me
I'll never accept so many pronunciations
To sound my hell again, to make me believe in you again

Deconstruction of one
Every reason is clear
Now you can see
What do you think of my extending frailty?
Thinner by the day, the mentality tries to hold
Every corner ripping
No nails can keep moored the clouds
Rip like cloth like, skin
It's only a matter of pain, a matter of annoyance
A matter of time before blood has drifted away
Evaporating in the heat, I wonder what it smells like?

And if you say, “what goes around comes around”, you'd be so right
And if you say, “you reap the seeds you sow”, you'd be so fucking right
And if you say, “try and understand”, then I don't think I can listen any more

Every day with your very stance
Your case for abortion getting stronger
I can see the umbilical chord wrapped around your spine
It's a showing of hurt, like a trapped nerve, you don't dare move
I won't be your child for much longer
It's your soul made to squeeze as many throats as possible
Well, I'm so sickened I can squeeze back
I'm so sickened I can squeeze
I'm so sickened I can
I'm so sickened
I'm so
I'm

I'm in your sympathy
I'm in your sympathy
I'm in your sympathy
I'm in your sympathy
I'm in your sympathy now

Never die/never grow
I'm in your every goodbye
Remember the flash of eyes
Look one more time to the ground
SoBeautiful
When you know you have to go

Away

It's so beautiful to be lost
Want to hide behind a wall nobody knows exists



One Last Summer

One last summer's decaying sunshine beats it's weak hands down on my back
A time for everything to die around me, sucking out all life
Will-power fades with the sun in the morning rain staring from the window
Succumbed to so much punishment of the soul
Made me look stronger than I was
Sick of wallowing over that life I used to lead
It's bloody and ready for taking to a restful place

I just want you to know you made me feel so sick
Maybe if I can have just one last summer I'll be happy forever
Don't spoil it for me
I need to find something else and forget about you

Don't let this be the last time I can forget about everything
Don't take away my last pleasure
In one last summer
I want to spend alone with my memories
Don't give me your sadness and anger
I don't want anymore doubt and pain because of you
I'll take myself somewhere where I can gaze at perfect animals
And know that you won't be there waiting for me when I get back
All because you've never been waiting for me (to make a paradox)
A melancholic death broken into by children with sticks

I just want you to know you made me feel so sick
Maybe if I can have just one last summer I'll be happy forever
Don't spoil it for me
I need to find someone else and forget about you now

One last summer
One last summer
One last summer
Will never end
If I can just get away today

Forget, forgive but never relive
Forget, forgive but never relive
Forget, forgive but never relive
Don't come back
Don't come back ever

Let me decay peacefully in my one last summer

Please
