Pardon


Excuse me

Pardon me

Ok fine then

Just ignore me

Excuse me

Pardon me

Ok fine then

I will speak my mind anyway

Deny

Deny

Deny the truth

Even though you see every word of it laid squarely at your feet

Keep believing

Believing in your own wretched lies

A tangled truth

A web of deception

Layer upon layer

Word after word

No longer any lines

Everything blurry

Hazy

Out of focus

Can no longer tell a truth from a lie

Excuse me

Pardon me

Careful of the deceit you weave

For karma’s a bitch

And soon I hope she will pay you a visit…

Drowned


Breaking the surface
A hand from above

Demanding a fight
Not letting me drown

Wings of hope
Soaring down

Grabbing my arm
Pulling me up

To the light
Towards the sun

From the depths
Away from the blackness

Up Up Up
Soaring to new heights

Then suddenly
Letting go

Cold a callous
Just watching me fall

On twisted wings
Soaring away

Gone without mercy

A short moment in my time

Now reflecting…

Last gasping breath…

Drowning…

Alone…

Where?


Where have you gone?

All these years flying by

Yet never forgetting

You

What could have been

What never was

Different words?

More or less aggressive?

The pendulum of fate never quite swinging in our direction

So where have you gone after all these years?

You have gone to memory

Gone to mildew and yellow

Gone to age gracefully

Fused forever into the fabric of my being…

Faded


The time has passed

The sun has set

Long gone now

Those day’s of youth

Only faint memories

Remembering

A smile creeping

Then like time

Quickly fading away

The time has passed

The sun has set

Eye sight fades

Skin once taught

Glowing

Vibrant

Now aged

Weathered like an old boot

And just as tough

But my time is now passed…

My hour-glass has run out…

My sun has set…

These words…

My Last…
