DEPTHS
written by Z. Benecke

down
im down here
down in the belly of the beast
drowning
let go
let go of me
im gone away here
just let me drown
in peace
dont pull me out
im already half-drowned
im half-dead
its not worth it
anymore
sleep 
i'll go to sleep
close my eyes and sleep
safe under the waves
shut my eyes
so i cant see
hold me safe
let the ocean
swallow me
sweet depths

LIFE IN THE FIRE
written by Frank S. Palmisano III

Devil and Devlynn, husband and wife:
His skin was of coal and hers a red flare,
Life in the fire, indignation and strife.

For on the day's dawning, he took such a life.
Her jovial manner, her heart-piercing stare,
Devil and Devlynn, husband and wife.

For was it a poison that cuts like a knife
or adorning of makeup, a dress that girls wear?
Life in the fire, indignation and strife.

Her beauty, a balm, that heals the heart's plight,
Oh Devil who took her, no guilt and no care.
Devil and Devlynn, husband and wife.

She cries with bemoaning, her capture at night
was birthed by the demons that sit at death's chair.
Life in the fire, indignation and strife.

O, Master of Evil, who took her sweet life,
The pain and the torture, an unlucky pair.
Life in the fire, indignation and strife,
Devil and Devlynn, husband and wife.
