Head on!

Head on!

tonight
I sit here alone,
a little sadder,a little older,
a little wiser,a little happier,
a little closer
to shaking hands with death
one more time,
the burden of words
cast one side
at least for awhile,
I am free yet held tight by the clutches of the beyond
for evolution
im sure as left me behind
forgetting my song
my wounds are beginning to heal
my pain hidden deep
within the darkness of the forgotten memories
of my past
my mind
my thoughts
heading to places I cannot comprehend
I fear to understand
I embrace the past
the poetry
the poverty
all woven deep within my core,
there is no escape from oneself
of that i am sure
I accept the future
embrace my being
speak to god on a level unknown before to me
still I walk away
with a mind full of sympathy
i ask
for whom the bell tolls
for me of course
i hear upon the wind
I watch the skeleton shake and rattle this bag of bones
known to the unknown
as me
head bowed
praying to lost entities
I hang my head in pain
for fear of my face reflected
upon the savage moon,
I feel the tears upon humanity
shatter my words,
for just a second I held the hand
of an entity
unknown to man
unknown to me
and for just a second
I felt a tear within
my heart
and wondered
Why…

Head on!

Artist's Description

just words…close call…

there is no poetry
within these words
for death was by my side
when i saw the terror within the night
and the beauty within
my mind,
i held out my thoughts
for god to see
walking away with
tear filled eyes,
begging the gods,
for mercy,
just one more time?
