A Twist By Life's Lies

A Twist By Life's Lies

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)
"

Inspired by The Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx- reposted

"

 

 

A Stolen secret

comes to life

just in time

to watch it die.

Bits and pieces

of jumbled haze

bring macabre memories

to a shattered brain.

Lies since birth

bring distorted pain

as a bitter past

bows to shame.

The serpent’s breath

finds it’s way

deep in the veins

of distant days.

Ride on wings of steel

above the dragon’s fire

allows a heart of gold

to live free and inspire.

Reads like something from the darkness of my own memories as the images that it paints in my mind. Make me think back over a life I once knew as a real life nightmare. You use perfect imagery to distill that image out of my mind perfectly. I thank you for helping me remember where i have been and somewhere I never wish to return to.


Great Job!!!!

Very good poem Dale, and I look forward to reading Nikki's book. I am sure its full of hard and tragic tales of his life, on not just drugs but alcohol. I have his cd and in each and every song you can feel the pain he was going through and hiding behind the junk.
I like the way you likened the drugs as a serpent, finding its way into his veins.
An amazing poem, based on an amazing book too!

To live free and inspire, to me that is the quintessential heart of gold! Excellent write my friend, Excellent indeed. Thank you so much for sharing this with me, and the rest of us at the cafe. I would like to think that all hearts were made of gold, and that we could eternally ride on the wings of steel, dancing just out of reach of the dragon's fire. Those words brought such a vivid picture in my mind, it was simply AMAZING! Kudos my friend!

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool
