Vampire – Promote Yourself


Help me
Cry out beneath the dark blanket
Grim voice of peace
Waiting for forgiveness in blood

Hope is a poison
A false tongue
To stain the fingers of idle hands

Labyrinth of form
To map out the void
The black heart of tomorrow
A quiet lie
A friendly hand in mine
Leading me beyond the pale edge of safety
Into the white maze of nothing

Close my eyes
Peaceful night murdered by the inner light
Blind my mind
Please help me
I will live forever
If I never find something to die for

Immortal horror
This hatred is an endless story
Hidden in the brightest lights
No reason to find
No will to fight
Come alive and kill me
Before I am eternal night
Lurking in obliterating empty light

There is nowhere to hide
No way to die
Empty fingers drawing lines
Empty lips are filled with lies
Colour white to justify
Perpetuate the lullaby
To trick the mind to stay inside
To be the lie
To paint and shape the azure sky
To match the cartoon humble pie
Our mothers baked inside our eyes

Paradise is but a picture
A safe reflection of the wild
Truth removed to help us smile
The nature is the beast
Its mean
Thirsty violence
Taught to crave the sweetest meat

The picture is clean
The beauty is easy to see
But the heart doesn’t bleed
When it breaks

The lips never scream
The eyes never see
Eternal lie
Framed for everyone to speak

Help me
I don’t want to break free
I want to stay
And bring it to its knees
Teach a god to see like me

Distractions flash to calm the weak
The truth is stronger than the meek
The ever changing face evokes the curiosity
Of few
So far between
Together we will never be…

How could I have known
I have always died alone…

– John Thursday

‘The Bells Still Ring on Yesteryear’ – Promote Yourself


Call the midwives from the country of your skull
To birth outlines of former incandescent lives.
Let the clouds droop down to graze
On towns taken and pillaged; forgotten and razed.
If the cradle doesn’t rock, it spins
To beat the devil over bottles of wine.
When hungry vines protrude, exert themselves, perchance,
There is little to attribute to in the vein of happenstance.

Here the valleys crumble, then collapse
Into the mouth of hungry seas. If to craft
The peaks of mountains leaves you twiddling your thumbs,
The gears have worn away and are petrified and dumb.
The child sleeps on in silent stupors
To exhibit, come daybreak, in one malignant screech.
When a flower may no longer dream of blooming season,
There is little to convince you that will appeal to reason.

Crown the fjords, flat and slim, as they dot
The eyes of bays fermented, yet which still refuse to cave.
If you will the sky to belt out its preliminary aches,
The rains may mellow worlds divided into catatonic flakes.
Nurse the babe with watercolours, pencils, too,
To quell the mind of terrors, of vice assumed in your likeness.
When the gales have stripped away what’s kept you from your healing,
You’ll feel the thunder of a heart that’s still intent on beating.

“Sea Worthy” – Promote Yourself


My entire life

is a string

of memories,

each one sewn


evergreen leaves.

My entire life

is an overture

of melodies

adrift within

an expanse


the universe.

My entire life

spent waiting

for this one

exacting beauty.

My entire life




My entire life

was lost…

until you.

My name is Nathan Lindsay. .

Thank you very much supporting amateurs as myself:



The Dictator – Promote Yourself



Beneath the engulfing shadow of security

I have created a rogue state

where my thoughts dictate

I will never be safe.


But with a mind that’s preoccupied

taking care of little me,

I’d be care-less

if I remembered that.

One Love Always

Shortcuts – Never – Promote Yourself


Walk like you don´t need money
Love like you´ve never been hurt
Dance like no one´s watching

But don´t forget
there´s no relief
for your pain

Songs aren´t for you honey
Sometimes you bleed before the cut
Sometimes you think you´re jumping
But you´re really falling

There´s no protection net
But you still believe
And ignore the rain

Taking the highway
Or a shortcut
Is the same

No longer you will stay
And it hurts
all is a wicked game.



Love is a two way stream

One unreleased film

A long distance lost scream

A beautiful ended dream


The same words once more

Always the same ships on the shore

Once again your face on my door

All this suffering what for ?.

Pedro Cunha.

Motion – Promote Yourself


My hips are wide
Are curvy
Are thick
Sway like willows in the wind
Her hips are narrow
Have edges
Have points
Move like waves on the water
And both are strong
And neither is ashamed
