As He Lay - part 3
Time still passes by him
But age is not a concern,
With his bed now made in darkness
No guiding light shall burn.
Hands have no words for writing;
the mouth no story to tell.
Just the winged final embrace
of the angel Azrael.
Speeding toward the emptiness;
The lonely one now sleeps
For what the light has manifest
The darkness always reaps.
His bed is made and waiting
With walls to high to scale
He listens to the silence following
The driving of each nail.
Locked inside of his sorrow
As he lay down in his grave
The silence - eternal - before him
No more a life-long slave.
Rest peacefull sorry shadow
Your head needs not a stone
Six feet of earth shall cover you
As he lay in darkness; alone
:iconcrazyjohn:CrazyJohn 1 2
As He Lay - part 2
The darkness overtakes him
The crushing weight of night
Rests itself upon his shoulders
With it's teasing dance of lights
Hope is at his fingertips
So he reaches out once more
And pulling back, in his grasp
Is the same he had before;
Like sand between his fingers
The light sifts into the black
A sandman to his loneliness
Sprinkling sadness from his pack.
As He Lay his head down
His heart begins to still
His eyes are ever heavier
and his body; feeling ill
Sinks down into the darkness
Under nights relentless load
Now he slips into eternity
Back into the silences abode.

As He Lay - part 1
The day wears down on him
His home is just another place
With no one there to greet him
So solemn is his face
With no one there to hear him
His silence is a speech
There's no one around to see him
Just the walls so white, as bleached
Having nothing that would feed him
and no one left to feed
This Chef starts cooking nothing
With no one, there's no need
The books he writes are calling
But with no story, what's the point
So he sits, continues aching
From his heart to every joint
A sadness builds inside him
A loneliness and pain
Like water to his eyelids
Waiting to fall like rain
But nothing issues forth
No tears trickle down his cheek
They just freeze into his soul
Because he doesn't want to feel weak
And whats the point in crying?
Tears rust away at steel
His feelings won't be shown
Because there's no one else to feel
So alone he shall retire
And as he lay down in his bed
The cold is what he sleeps with
Not love, but cold instead.
:iconcrazyjohn:CrazyJohn 0 4
Yes, I still look
and I cry when you don't
I notice, you're around me
Aknowledge me; you won't
I'll keep it short and simple
I love you, this is true
I've brought this pain upon myself
And there's nothing I can do
Theres so much I don't get
things I don't understand
Do I even exist to you
or is mine just another hand
Why won't you talk to me?
Your lips silent with pain
It makes my head ache with thoughts
and then tears come down like rain
Will my heart ever heal from this?
Only time will tell
I hope, some day, to find deliverance
"Lord, save me from this hell"
My heart, it clouds my thinking
Pulls my heart and hurts my head
And my temporary cure for it
Is to simply go to bed....
How can I do this comfotably?
Like things have always been the same
The answer to that is simple;
Juliet: "What's in a name?"

I'm taking new strides in my artistic life... and you're involved. I need you to share what I give you so that those who appreciate my work might be able to view it.…

This is a video of my band that a friend made. We're going to need your shares, your likes, favorites, and your support.

If you and I can get this to go somewhere then I will post some quality poetry and prose. Along with an essay or two.
