Live and Let Live (a poem by Jack)

I don’t know what rules you live by..

Those weaknesses don’t govern my life..

I’ve considered your innocence… 

But you’ve betrayed your innocence…You’ve allowed your innocence to die.. So what is your life really worth..

You’re just a soul in search.. 

Of what? 

A longing you’ll never find on this earth…


Numb your misery… Numb it baby..


I still believe in you… But you are a lost soul… Sent to this earth on a wild goose hunt… The innocence in others disturbs you… You look for love but will never find anything beyond infatuation..

You are cursed..

In me you found the beauty of innocence to latch upon… To fall in love with… But my innocence is tainted… And it isn’t even mine… It’s the discarded innocence of the many misguided souls… From the many lifetimes I’ve explored..

Innocence that’s been abandoned and left for death…

All this trash and you managed to find your treasure…

I thought about killing you for betraying my trust, as you have betrayed so many others…

You think your rules and rationale will save you… But your weakness don’t govern my actions…

And your soul is full of guilt and justified retribution… 

I am the cleansing you so longed for…

In me you will find redemption… In me your soul will be renewed…

A baptism by sacrifice… A superficial martyrdom– not to save the souls of many but to rebirth the spirit of one…

Inhale deeply… Macabre effervescence… Allow the breath of innocence to breathe life back into that which has died… 

Let me resurrect you from your own self-inflicted mortality…


Have you ever really lived?
