Living a Lie:

I feel like I've awakened from a comatose state
And the world has gone on without me.
I stretch my legs and take a walk outside
And for the very first time I see:

A strange kind of beauty, that is utterly alluring
It calls out to my spirit with the gentlest of cries.
I'm afraid to admit, for it was rather unmanly,
That I left with tears in my eyes...

I can't imagine how I could have forgotten
The very way that I used to walk...
I remember now my habitual actions
And I've even learned to talk!

"Arrr me hearties, good day to ya all
It be a fine day ta sail on tha sea
And if we find a plethora o' treasure;
Then yer drinks are all on me!"


I must admit it that brought me a smile
To be speaking my native brogue.
It reminded me that a dashing man
Should always be a playful rouge.

But that aside I'm feeling better
For now my mind has found its peace.
A comforting sense of order and structure
It's almost as rare as the golden fleece.

Within this sphere of joy and comfort
I begin to weave the next release
Perhaps tonight I'll entertain you
With an even darker piece...

"Blood Crusade, is coming tonight and the rhymes shall never be lacking!"

Author's Comment:

Just an update for the fans. I've decided to stop my research (at least this week) because it was causing me to write in a form I simply was not comfortable in.

Besides, what I am known for is my devious rhyme scheme and so, it's back to the two fundamentals tonight. Blood and Rhyme.

Hence "Blood Crusade" is coming :3

Aha, this was very amusing in regards to your recent withdrawal from rhyming. X)

If you break it down, it's saying, "Omg YES I CAN RHYME AGAIN."
