Favorite Quote:
" The night has a thousand eyes, And the day but one; Yet the light of the bright world dies with the dying sun. The mind has a thousand eyes, And the heart but one; Yet the light of a whole life dies when love is done." Francis William Bourdillon


Nausea rips open my quivering flesh, demanding all blood to slither from me.
Girdled by a shaking world, my ceiling rotates, and i can't see.
Crimson stream, scavengering for an escape. Locked up, and working as one.
My mind, scrambled and confused. Confronted by unconsiousness who decides it's over, we're done.
My defenseless body, crumpled to the ground. My childlike ears, unable to hear much sound.
Agony and writhing pain in my chest, hands automatically clasped. A tear from my left eye, signalling my emotional cry.
Lord please, sing to me your dainty lullaby.


The author's comments:
Before i had written this poem i was undergoing an extensive amount of stress from daily life complications, and had decided to make that painful moment be a beauty in life.
