The Pull of It

Updated on October 8, 2017

Israel is a fan of many types of music and loves to write, not in any particular order and does them usually at the same time.

The pull is strong,

I feel it in my bones,

My heart,

My soul,


I can be greatest person you will ever meet,

I can also the be worst,

A conundrum at its finest,

Shifting of paradoxes at a sort,


So much anger,

So much hate,

A malice mouth,

With words of venom,


I grasp at nothingness as it pulls me down,

Down in the darkness,

Forever like this I fear,

An inescapable fate,


Is this truly my core?

The rage, oh the rage,

So strong I am,

A projection,


Facades upon facades,

A soul fragmented beyond repair,

Deeper it drags me,

Hopelessness slowly fills me up,


I scream of rage and hurt,

A burning of fire unparalleled,

Unmatched in all aspects,

And so the darkness pulls me even deeper...
