after you have left it.
We all saw the topic "Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan" and we all thought,
"What did he do this time?"
We continue to read the words,
"It is with great sadness and heavy hearts"
And our hearts also sink.
This could not be possible.
Of the five he seemed the most
First we think it could be a joke.
That the guys are messing with us, teasing us before the release of their new material.
Second, we are stunned, as are our bodies;
they quiver and our mouths hang open.
Overcome by the realization that this is no jest.
He is gone from this Earth.
Thirdly, we become either angry or
swollen with tears.
Our hearts plummet to our stomach, we hit things, we cry out, we vomit, we scream
Of the fourth, we become numb.
It's what creeps up our failing arms, our kicking legs
It's the pain in our throats from our tormented screams
It's the tears simply falling out and our useless hands that have no intention of wiping them

Many times before supported the cages we call bodies
That once held the souls of the great and the lowly.
Some spend awhile here
Some spend only a short hour or so.
Sometimes fates are revealed
Others aren't so easy to determine.
A Y incision rimmed in crimson
Thin lines holding you together again
After they opened you up
Looking for what happened so suddenly
Artwork spread out over your pale flesh
A walking canvas painted by a mind
Soon set into skin
You never cared what anyone thought of you
You never edited anything you said.
Skilled hands found a way to match the beating of our hearts
In all your songs
Words that you wrote
Lifted us high above the world
Where we stood with the band
Vanquishing whatever fears we had
Behind your drum set.
You were you
We loved you.
We still love you.
We will always love you.
Hardly begin to describe what they feel
We feel the fringes of these things
We don't know you like they do
Only the Good Die YoungTonight I leave youOnly the Good Die Young4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In tears, in memory, in fear.
But I will always be with you
Wherever you go, hiding in the Shadows.
Please do not forget me
As I work my way to the Gates.
So far away, I know this.
But this is my unchangeable fate.
Do not seek Vengeance on my behalf,
It will only do more harm.
We'll be alright, in the end you'll see.
In time we'll meet again.
For Christ's sake and mine, do not worry.
Because only the good die young.
Only the great rise above the others
And pay the forbidden price.
I love you all, you are my family.
As the Fallen, we shall rise.
I'll remember you in my heart foREVer,
For I won't see you tonight.

As you sit in silence,
I'll be your shoulder to cry on,
Until your tears run dry.
When you've been hurt,
And can't believe what has been done
If you need someone to talk to,
I'll be the one.
If someone hurts you,
And you don't understand
Remember I'm here,
I'll lend a helping hand.
Burdens are lighter when carried by two,
And I just want you to know
I'm here for you.

I can't breathe when I'm without you,
But you take my breath away.
These little ironies are what compose
The core of destiny and what we are,
What we are not;
The flaws that somehow make us more than
Perfect beings, joined together:
Humans, flawed, when we're apart.
Your love, it takes my words away:
You leave me speechless,
But I'm writing this for you.
How can I say
What cannot, by speech, be expressed?
I want to punctuate my dreams;
I want to speak in tongues for you –
The half of the whole is the nothing.
So here I am, and I'm empty,
Thoughtless, mindless and alone.
You're sitting just across the room,
But you are still out of my reach.
Without your thoughts of me I'm thoughtless:
I am speechless in your absence
And yet, somehow,
I'm still breathless in your arms.

To help you make it through.

Never forget that,
No matter what.

Just A FriendFor you I'm just a friendJust A Friend8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Someone who'll stay until the end
With all your heartaches no one mends
To you my beating heart I'll lend.
Though I smile when I see your face
My sorrows leave no single trace
Because I am only your friend
Laughs and cheers I must make pretend.
When you speak of the joy He brings
Undying love above all things
My heartfelt trust to you I'll send
Because to you I'm just your friend.
With every word I stab myself
For I can't show you how I felt
Because for you I'm just a friend
To you my heart cannot transcend.
To love you is a fallacy
Coz' we are never meant to be
The only thing that you can see
A good friend's heart inside of me.
So I must face reality
That both our hearts can never be
For you just see me as a friend
This is where it's going to end.

But better that than not enough,
And if your words are here to pull me down,
In this pool of deceit is Ill drown.
And baby, this line between us is standing strong,
With you nothings right and everythings wrong,
Youre only here to forget to remember,
Im up for the fight and Ill never surrender.
Maybe, baby, I care too much,
But maybe you care less than enough.
And baby, theres nothing left that you could say,
To fix the faults of yesterday,
And if your hearts here to harden the blow,
Then maybe, baby, I want you to go.
And this pain is nothing compared with the past,
But Im sick of sitting in the shadow you cast,
And maybe, baby, I care too much,
But better that then not enough.
CareI cannot explain why I feel sad nowCare5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Perhaps I have made this up
and have so allowed myself to to sink
But tell me what to do,
tell me what to think
When I'm supposed to not care.
When time tells me I should no longer care.
When distance tells me I should relinquish care.
When circumstances dictate it would be madness to care.
I am maddened, I am aware
And what do I deserve?
Hand in hand through rain sluiced streets
Hiding under hotel sheets, in
Darkness, a flickering screen in place of heat
A promissory note in place of sleep.
A fear of the time I'm yet to meet.
Lately I am scared.
Not-so lately I am weak.
I do need. I do want.
This is not a crime
I deny nothing.
I have been denied everything in turn
Every single ambition ends in submission,
And every path in a turn.
Walking, hand in hand through crowded streets
Unable to escape the heat
I am looking at the wall again.
I am looking at my feet.
I am looking at people that pass.
I am loo

It's so plain to see,
That not all things are meant to be
You weren't there
And never really cared
About anything of me.
As I rock in and out of insanity
And thought that there was no point to me
I mourn, always scorned
By your lies.
But now I realize...
The fault wasn't mine
That I should always keep in mind, a sign...
Your type...is never so kind...
As restless nights come and pass
And shining dew drops on the grass
I know now, at my prime
That you'll never be so kind.
You locked you're heart away from mine
Sealed it shut for all time
But now I see, all is clear,
All the times we shared...
Vanish...and once for all, it's true,
I never did
Nor ever will

A voice across all countries and time
The way you stand up

And I know dear ally

Your soft support
Keeps holding me here
The way you help so diligently
The advice you give so carefully
The love you share with them and me
Sets the chains upon me free
And I know dear friend
That you are mine
Hands holding the future
Hands shaping the climb
Digging a HoleDigging beneath dappled shade,Digging a Hole6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And a chorus of applauding trees.
A sharp-spade chewing sound,
Metal hum like plucked wire.
Aching back, muddy smears,
And not a blister; just
A certain hardness of the skin,
Cracking like a gourd
Across the wrinkles of my thumb.
Why were you digging a hole?
She asked me, afterwards.
It felt I answered,
Like the right thing to do
At the time
Mulch smell, wet and bodily.
The hole opens, organic;
A ventricle, it gasps.
a kissA kiss, it is a beautiful thing.a kiss7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It is a symbol of love the world over.
Its the thing that fills your stomache up with butterflies,
and you get the sensation of love flowing through you.
A kiss can bring warmth to the coldest day,
and light to the darkest hour.
A kiss can say more than a million words,
and mean more than a million actions.
No matter where you are that kiss can give you the same thing.
Be it in an undergound train station,
or on a sunset beach.
It immortlises the moment, no matter the setting.
A kiss is as unpredicatable as the weather,
it can happen as predicated,
or it can come out of the blue.
But no matter.
That kiss has the same feeling,

For A FriendYou wandered into my life,For A Friend8 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And walked straight into my heart.
A single smile was all that was needed,
For our amazing friendship to start.
You gave me new hope,
When I though that all was lost.
You always held my hand,
During all the roads we've crossed.
You're my protector, my blood sister,
The one who reads my mind.
Who laughs at my lame jokes,
And helps me escape the daily grind.
So confident and loving,
A free spirit so pure.
Who shares my love of music,
Her one and only Cure.
I hope you'll always remember,
That you'll forever have a friend in me.
And I know if I asked the same of you,
You would always agree.
It's hard to imagine my life,
If it was without you,
We've always stuck together,
No matter what stupid shit we do.
I fear now that your leaving,
A fear I'm not willing to face.
Coz I know that if you left,
My world would be a duller place.
I know life can confuse you sometimes,
But I now you'll figure it all out in the end.

How to Walk AwayForget about the good timesHow to Walk Away8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Every wonderful day
Let the river of your thoughts flow
Any other way
Forget about the good times
Every wasted kiss
And know that when it's done
What lies ahead is bliss
Forget about the good times
Don't be her fool again
Her eyes are nothing but lies
It'll be better in the end
Forget about the good times
And remember what she did
Remember when she wouldn't talk to you
And remember where she hid
Forget about the good times
It took to long to say
But forget about the good times
That's how you walk away
