Unsub

Trap


Notice of absence from Unsub
Busy!

Lost in the landslide of crushing lies

Truth caught in a never-ending loop

Your smug face is a pool of deceit

The hand of safety; now in retreat

 

The Ace of Hearts; the Jack of Spades

Beware the Joker; his hand of blades

The Ace of Clubs; the Queen of Hearts

Behold the Joker; his poisoned cards

 

A new life offered, then tossed away

The trap sprung; the bell calls

More slaves for the ship of fools

 

Paradise offered, then thrown away

The trap sprung; the bell tolls

More fodder for the well of souls

 

Lost in the avalanche of broken dreams

Trust spins like a fairground ride

Your dark face is a pit of snakes

The hand of safety; hard on the brakes

 

The Ace of Hearts; the Jack of Spades

Beware the Joker; his hand of blades

The Ace of Clubs; the Queen of Hearts

Behold the Joker; his poisoned cards

 

A new life offered, then tossed away

The trap sprung; the bell calls

More slaves for the ship of fools

 

Paradise offered, then thrown away

The trap sprung; the bell tolls

More fodder for the well of souls

 

The single Ace bears just one Club

Behold the Devil

Will you play his weighted deck of blood?

 

Snap! Goes the trap!

    I'll play the jack of diamonds.

    This is enough to put the spooks up any cardsharp.

      Dusky,

      I play with a loaded set anyway so you'll probably lose. I only play games I can win! I'm a very bad loser...but always a loser!!

            In my case..ive brem offered a new life and it's taking forever to start doing something with it..its like that black cloud still lingers and refuses to fuck off and go away....its a stubborn motherfucket too..and what's funny is its comprised of nothing but spam..schmegma...bullshit..so it really should not be that powerful dd

              33,

              Once the black cloud surrounds you it becomes your shroud for life!
