Just another casualty.
It's sad but true.
And even dead I'm still ahead
of most of you.

Around the corner
There is a light and as it gets closer
You brighten like this star
That I once knew.
I wish this life was as bright as you.
This light that you carry
Is not as heavy as my burden
Which I would gladly bury if given the chance.
Don’t pretend to be dull.
You couldn’t even act it
If you tried.
You don’t know how not to shine.
I wish I could drop everything
Just to fall into the blue with you.
Try to find my way to heaven
But the glue has my shoes.
Just drop me like everything else you do.
All the time it’s dropping and
I’m down like the flu.
Flying like I’m dying
And you’re the one with the slander.
Exotic is the new standard.
Don’t you know?
These things are always dropping.
That’s just the way it goes.

A dying man needs to die, as a sleepy man needs to sleep, and there comes a time when it is wrong, as well as useless, to resist.

"Nobody is normal. Everybody in the world is a weirdo freak. Except you, which makes you a weirdo freak."

Wow! this is excellent! I love the rhyming devices- the words just sort of tripping and falling over eachother, and rolling into the wonderful ending. I love this poem!!!
