Landslide

my chest aches
mind slathered across
gravel and stone
no peace for mourners
no peace for memory
and when the bell tolls
all there is to know
is dust in company

breathing out tar nicotine
like its all thats left to understand
only thing left thats sacred
unchanging, addiction
times an old friendship
gone and turned sour
and you forgot who
you were becoming
fading

but you don't want to let go
and this is all you have
scared of jumping into an abyss
incapable of resufacing.
this is your dilema
but life has you under its toe
kicking and screaming
never gonna let go

so take another drag
tell the world to hell
close your eyes
wipe away those tears
and go.
