  1. Twin Moons of jupiTer

    We slide from one Moon to the oTher
    Like innocenT children
    Like innocenT children
    I say these words to you
    My glare will desTroy whaT you haTe
    I am the Surreal ManTis
    I will NOT let you eaT me
    I am masTer here

  2. Timeless sonneT No.1(CrysTal Ball)

    the crysTal ball beckons me oVer
    she turns ScarleT Red aT Her Dead Muse
    Turning a hue of blue
    It is Dead
    she needed to nurTure Him
    LoVe Him
    Kiss Him and predicT
    good things daily for Him
    she is as clear as shallow
    she genTly asks for my Muse
    I Look her in the eyes and sTare her down
    My Will sTarTs to make her blink
    beauTiful rainbow colours splinTer her Brain
    LoVe Your Muse
