What Does Sorrow Know About The Ways of the World

July 25, 2011

No one deserves a broken heart
O how I know I hate mine

But it’s what I do have
I prayed to God for a sign

It was clear He wasn’t listening
I did not know where to start

Would I just always be stuck with
This poor defenseless pathetic heart

I showed my heart to the Devil
He said “Now what would I want with this?”

He slammed it down onto the table
He screamed that it was useless

So I put my heart back inside me
I shivered as I felt it’s cold

I traveled the paths in the woods
As the lonely days made me grow old

Just me alone in the wilderness
Holding a useless heart in my depths

I walked the path of loneliness
Keeping a cold stone in my chest

Sink…Sink….Sink….And Soon The Ship Vanished into the Blue

July 7, 2011

Sink…

………Sink…..

…………….Sink….

The ships about to sink
And I think it’s time to think
about jumping over board.

Slow…

………….Slow……

………………………Slow…..

The ship sinks ever slow
With no where left to go
Time to jump over board

Low…

………..Low……

…………………..Low…..

The ship sinks ever more low
This is what I know
I’ll never get the chance

Drink…

……….Drink…

……………………Drink….

I’ll take that one last drink
As the ship continues to sink
Lost among the murky depths

Close….

………….Close…

……………………..Close…

My eyes begin to close
The path that I have chose
Oh God I’m sorry that I failed

Cold….

………….Cold….

……………………….Cold….

The water and it’s icy cold
Have frozen me and my bones
I’ll become food for the Whale
