Empty Halls

In my head you won’t stop dying
In my heart you won’t stop living
Death is thick
Like funeral parlor carpet
The living just sink right in
All the comfort
All the prayers
None of it matters
When the shades close
On my racing thoughts
Death is final
I can’t get around that
On quiet nights
I wish your ghost
Would walk the halls
Just once
So I could maybe have
Peace of mind
Do you forgive me brother?
For the things
I never did
All those years
I was a ghost to you
A pale image
Of flesh and bone
It took me so long
To live
When I finally did
You were dying
Death has made us strangers
I don’t want anymore sympathy
Because I’m still sinking
Into that damn carpet
The thickness of death
Suffocates the living
The dead can not forgive
I can only accept
Death is final
