    Death

    Death is the line between shadow and light, The flicker of a candle flame ready to go out. Death is the sweet sick sensation, going upstairs, When you get to the last step but the last step's not there. Yes, here too Is the ugliness of human decay. The stench, the rot, the cold...

    Sorrowful singing fill the air,

    The casket lay flowerless and bare. Clouds drearily weep above, The ground puddling to mud. The hole below hollow, Death daring to follow.

    For The Open Spaces

    Yeah, I’m like the gray or white or baby blue, Or one of those other crayons You never take out of the box. You’d rather leave the page alone, Where it needs a color, than take me out of there. So I get dry and waxy and break Again and again, But even then, if someone...

    The forgotten- Forgotten by thy name,

    Heart laid to the realm of pain. Seeking not for sorrow, Never, yet, to remember thee in the 'morrow. Silver words hang on thy tongue, A retched breath fill thy lung. An unfaithful mask, Doth hide thy terrible task. Thy words fall on deaf ears, For truth never speaks of such...

    I am tired of influence,

    broken, fatigued, cold hearted and no longer able to trust. Where can I find meaning in purposeless void? My desire now; Only to crawl under something into a parallel universe tailored to perfect weightlessness and my greatest joys and comforts, and so to sleep.

    This Is Not A Sonnet

    Your yellowish words,Like puke on my shoes.You have refusedTo let the birdsPeck out the headlinesOn our newspapers.Their appearanceIs like dirty diaper piles'.Do not return.Stick a cactusDown your throat.Let whiskey burnAnd erect usTo sail the Styx boat.

    A burned path on a barren plain. A rusting hulk of a merchantman, Sinking fast in the watery sand. I shout and scream, No one hears me. The shadow's glare, Bones rotting and bare. I can not fight, His hands hold me tight. Down down down, i drown. In the darkness, I am found. I...

    Forget thy name, Forget thy dwelling place,

    To shallow be thy breath, To many sorry spilled in thee name. Call no longer, A demon of Fear devours thy soul, Whilst victorious evil chase the angels away. Give thee silence, Give thee death, Morrow with the dawn, Sing thy funeral song.
