Born again?! No, I'm not. Excuse me for getting it right the first time. - Dennis Miller


When the nerves have died
What else is there to do
Except float on in the empty
Abyss?

Why does the skin not melt with the heat of the fire?
Why do the rivers on the face not dry up?
Never ending cycle of
Pain.

The darkness cloaks the dagger until it plunges deep,
Dragging across vital organs,
Tearing and ripping,
Flesh exposed.

Can the dead feel pain?
Do their hearts beat?
Do their brains function?
It seems so, yet not so –

The author's comments:
This is just about my current feelings and state of mind, which is probably pretty obvious - been reading too much Emily Dickinson lately...
