In the Ground

Shades of black, the color of shadows
Staining your face yet again
Watch it cloud your eyes, this frost so thick
Fog choking hearts of many men

Suffocating, leave you gasping,
Lying strangled on the bed you made
Choking, oxygen departs from the lungs
Now throw your soul into shade

Hole in the ground, your new home
Larvae of the pests your only acquaintance
Sleeping deeply, no alarm to wake your spirit
No more cleaning, eating, maintenance

Leave us behind, make everything better
Dream in the soil of this earth
And know that your worthless, vile existence
Couldn’t get you in the urn on the hearth
