Nice to Meet You

I am not who
Anyone wants
No one dares to
Knock on my
Faintly glowing
Vine wrapped door
For they know
They can never be
Prepared for
What lies in store
When you wander off the
Safe
Familiar path of the
Ignorant and
Instead drift
Closer and closer to
Mine
I’ll scream and
Shout
I’ll make you
Doubt
Every single thing
You’ve ever thought
Before
I’ll open your mind
Make your words soar
Leave you wide eyed
Begging for more
Cause once you’ve visited this
Insightful
Beautiful
World
There is no going
Back to the
Shallow one you
Dwelt in
Once before
Your heart will always crave
More and more and
More
When it finally finds those
Rare rare things
Every unfulfilled soul is so
Desperately searching for
You don’t want to know me
I’ll drag you to and fro
Up and down and through the
Cloudy grey muck of
Reality
Transforming your dreams into
Hopeful
Illogical
Fantasies
I’ll take your walls
And burn them to the
Ground
Sit silently before you
Absorbing every
Single
Painful
Pitiful
Sound that
Pours out from your
Broken heart
I’ll make you start to
Believe in something you
May never even find
Break through the confinements
Of your ever closed mind
Slowly slowly climb
Past the barriers of
Time in its
All powerful self
You don’t want to
Cross paths with me
I’ll take you on an
Unforgettable journey
In which you will realize
The only way to change the
World into the
Beautiful
Meaningful
Passionate place that
Hides within your dreams
Is to become a
Lonely
Peculiar
Genuine person
Just like
Me
To feel and live
Wholeheartedly
Breaking through all distant and
Bitter
Things
Only then can we
Stab and tear and fight
Through this
Impenetrable
Steel curtain of
Hatred
That has
Smothered
Every good
Thing
