Kraken

Watch your feet, lads aboard
Over deck lives a beast
With an insatiable hunger
For all kinds of meats
She lurks the seabed below
Eyes fixed on her prey
She’ll stalk and she’ll creep
And strike without delay

Calm seas and dark skies

Tells that she’s got you in her eyes

Then the currents will shift

The surface will break

As she erupts from the sea

Leaving great whirlpools in her wake

The salty stand petrified

The green cower and hide

Kings and men alike

Too powerless to strike
Her arms grow long
And many there are at that
They’ll rip apart your vessel
And leave You no time for combat

Claws, like daggers, grow from each limb
To rip both flesh and oak
She’ll tear in half any ship
All in a single stroke
She’ll swallow you whole
Her maw will be your demise
Her gut you’ll find your grave
Your death, a grim surprise

Two Years of Gold; Two Weeks of Black

You once were mine
And I was proud of that fact
 I loved you, I cared for you
Like a precious artifact
And I could have sworn
 You felt the same for me too
But you’ve found another
And played me like the fool
Now jealousy rots me to the core
Twisted thoughts prevail my mind
 Images of you loving another man
 Burn my heart and cause it to grind
How could you love a another man
So quickly
What we had was special
 At least to me
I was part of your family
They called me their son
And I wanted to live life with you
But now it’s all said and done
And here I am miserable
Do you even think of me
Or was I something you’d want to forget
So easily
Was this all just an act
Was it only a game?
Well I gave you my heart
 And I thought you felt the same
But two years you put behind
 Like it never mattered
Then played with my heart
left me broken and battered
I tried and I tried
 To give you all my heart
I thought we were going somewhere
 Til you ripped me apart
I was happy with you
And With you I found hope
But you used me and left me
At the end of a rope
