With no warning, love has
Left me, it seems, while I slept.
Tears, like raindrops, fall.

Reign of death.
Prey, why don't you lighten my load?
Totalitarian, and as your subject
You are responsible
For my very well being.

Or rather, a lack of.

Your innocence shall
Serve as a shield. Here's a rag;
Wipe your bloodied hands.

Trip the Light Fantastic

Watch how she circles the Earth, alone.
"A hard unforgiving rock of stone,
Is all she is." Say the men of science.
Using their learning to force our compliance.

But somewhere up there in the dead of space,
As she completes her 'thereal race,
I know that something within her breast,
Must bid her move forward without a rest.

Could it be love?

But who would match her eternal march
Across the sky? Would loneliness parch
The waters of her majestic grace?
Still, she travels 'round Sol in her race.

But what, then, would give her cause to hide?
For monthly she narrows at the side.
But what, then, bids her to come return?
If heaven has not deemed her fit to spurn?

Could it be love?

Could it be love?

Thanks! But dang, that is one big cookie.

Hmmm. I should probably pay the electric bill.

Immersion

Now I will leave you,
Abandoning your embrace
For Neptune's guiles.

The Mightiest Rock

Slowly the river
Will wear down the mightiest
Rock. All yield to it.

-----

Hang-over induced headaches lead
To the siren song of Tylenol,
And hits of store-bought Adderal.
Walk a tight-rope? I'll do the deed.
In the end I know I'll fall
Since I'm merely human after all.

Thoughts so far?

Repetition
[i]Lyrics[/]

I've had too much to drink tonight;
Too much has made me blind.
Some how I never see the light,
This lonely way I wind.
But I hurt myself, bleed myself,
Drain until I resemble the colors of the sea:
Imperfect harmony.

But still I'd wait in line for this.
I'll always wait in line for this.

The Glorious Dead

Born to kill, we charge
At the yellow trenches and
Are struck down by Mars.
