Man in Red

August 27, 2012
The soundwaves of the silence
Send you to your sleep.
Stand to face your fears,
who haunt you in your dreams.
Towering your innocence,
with bare thoughts of truth.
Kissing satan softly
as he hisses quite a tune.
Lullabye me softly
you say to the man in red.
Falling for his eyes
the obstacles you dread.
Poison is inside him,
making it's way beyond.
The innocence we spoke of,
is since forever gone.
