The inevitable inches closer,
slowly stalking me.
Shadowing my every step
and I know that eventually
it's going to catch up with me.
I can not get away
so all that's left to do is live,
while I still can, today.

Fallen Angel
Fallen Angel Crawling in my forlorn appearance I hide my soul behind these tattered wings Tattered and broken as they are Plucked of light, stained in tears and blood. In quiet despair upon the cold earth Smeared in dirt I crouch upon my weary knees And clutched timidly between my fingers Rests one last jewel of Hope. A single unblemished plume plucked From the silver light of dawn A feathered ray of light from beyond To illuminate the void that has me bound. This precious barb of silk Once lost as I was and forgotten Blazes now to immerse me in radiant bliss To wash away the pain, draw me from the abyss. So now I fade away…

Suicide
Mom I love you Don't blame it on yourself Dad forgive me I couldn't ask for help Sis don't hate me For leaving you alone Take my picture Off the table by the phone It never belonged there anyway This happy family was broken Long before I left it anyway I don't expect you to understand Just why it was that I couldn't stay I know you can't hear me But I'm writing this for you It is my last punk song Telling you my life is through It's okay to hate me Just don't miss me when I'm gone Cuz I don't deserve it When I have done so much wrong I never belonged here anyway This happy family was broken Long before I left it anyway

A Forest at Morning
I dreamed of trees. Bright boughs and blooms Through gloom and morning spilled While I brushed back their silver leaves That sunlit skies had filled With gilded wash--the vermeil sight Above the dusky bark Seemed starry trains above the moon And night's enclosing dark And I stepped under such a sky: New-formed, bejeweled, and bright And wished I could forever dwell Within its dim half-light. There nothing stirred; no beast or bird Dwelt in the forest there Though I heard silent rivers trill Still wand'ring swift and fair Through banks embraced by cattail roots; Through drooping willow leaves That rustled in the water's rush
