"It is better to burn out, than to fade away."-Kurt Cobain

I'm so sick of this emptiness.
I almost miss those days of ignorant bliss.
Consumed by my dreaded selfishness,
Yet drowning in your endless kiss.

Do you love me, lover of mine?
Is your company wasted time?
Is that you, hanging from the vines?
Am I staring at your lifeless eyes?

Oh my love, why have you gone?
What is it that I've done wrong?
I found you hanging at the break of dawn.
Hello, my love, it's been so long.

I lay here, I weep at your feet.
You hang there, as I silently weep.

The author's comments:
This is a poem I wrote about a girl who's going through a pretty tough time. She grows tired of the emptiness she feels, and she hates how selfish she acts. One morning she wakes up to find her lover dead, hanging himself with vines from a plant. She wonders why he did it, and what she did wrong? All she can do is cry at his feet, as her life is shattered.
