Faces Of Mine

A smile once so true
But it changed direction over time
I knew it was there because of you
But it was just belief based on a lie

Hope cannot be granted
And then stripped away
You have left my core tainted
With these wicked games that you play

May it be a lesson
Or turn it into fact and truth
Love won't be as important
As I use these scars as my proof
-
These eyes were once so hopeful
It was considered the rise after the fall

But my tears became unfaithful
As pain plunged out of my skull

No passion for the heart / No light for the dark
No love for the liars / No guilt for the betrayers
No truth for the corrupted / No solace for the hatred
No burden for the departed / No shame for the discarded

An innocent outlook on life
Once so pure and whole

But now it's twisted to survive
There is no caring anymore
-
Forced to adapt to cruelty
I injected ice into my veins
I changed my perception of reality
I will be the last nightmare you have made

Human nature is to blame
For all of the wrongs
But soon that will change
I will undo what you have done

I will erase everything
Void of weak emotions
My face will become nothing
But a symbol...of vengeance
You pushed me over the edge
You made me cross the line
You will never hurt me again
You will pay with your life

Faces Of Mine -
Alcohol Fueled Words -
Alcohol Fueled Words
Alcohol Fueled Words

Blame can go a long ways
When the problems stay intact
Guilt always refuses to fade
After another hurtful attack

Regret has an unquenchable thirst
While voices are thrown every direction
Rage is tightly bottled up until the next outburst
Though the tears dry, the reasons for them won't be easily forgiven

-
You bring out those secret, false words I don't even mean
You push me over the edge, and get rid of my sense of controllability
You expose hidden feelings that are supposed to be locked deep within me

You pull me into a downward spiral, to release my brutality
You choose innocent targets to go for, but y

No More Therapy -
No More Therapy
No More Therapy

Nothing works anymore
I knew it all along; the end is near
I've said it once and I've said it before
I was never meant to exist; I was not meant to be here

Hated by all / See me fall
Loved by none / Heart is numb
Rejected by life / Fallen from strife
From this- I've become / After this- I'm done

Through this blame
Is the choice
Of my decision

Hear the pain
In my voice
I am suffering
-
I no longer could drown out the sounds
Swallowed from within
I was surrounded by an internal doubt
Regretting everything

Remember the days
Relive the nights
Of my shame
In my mind

Growing up in society
I got lost
Being r

Only In My Memories -
Only In My Memories
Only In My Memories

The thoughts are like frost-bitten pins
Everything goes numb when the cycle begins

I'm every sin

No hands were lent, no hands to take
Abandonment   abandonment   abandonment
No tears were shed, no tears to make
Abolishment   abolishment   abolishment
-
The images are like venomized needles
After the feelings are injected, I'm left fearful

I'm chaotically peaceful

This self-suffering is man-made, so I hope for my own sake
Heart infection   heart infection   heart infection
I thought it was destiny, but I fell for you too


This completes volume one.

Well, I wouldn't say anything like that....Let's just say slenderman had the "look" I was aiming for and just used his imagery for my poem.

Ah, So I see. If Slendy just fits the bill...Then what was the original motivation for the Poem?

It's a long, weird story.

As I'm nearing the end of the project, there are some gaps that need to be filled. I had a working title called "Tears Of Mine" but I realized I used the the ending for another poem, so thus, the title became useless. I then started to think of replacing the words "tears" with something else. I got a comment saying "You should do one about slenderman next time." I know of Slenderman, and the game. I did a search for stock images of Slenderman and did a wiki search of the origin.

I thought his 'face' was kind of cold, and creepy. I then thought of "Faces Of Mine"

Some ones face could be so...kind and innocent, but then it can also transform. Transform into something...cold...and eventually creepy.

Thus, inspiration was fused together.....

I hope that made sense x,x
