Death Becomes You

Death becomes you
now that you are dead in my heart
A heavy, heaving lump I carry
within my chest
Yet a vacancy persists
An emptiness exists
In the cavern beneath the crooks of my ribs
Your signature on each ivory key
Singing a dulled harmony
Of your pretense of loyalty
And love for me
Death becomes you
Vacant apparition
Modern man of despair
Tell me… Who shall care?
Now that you are dead
To me
Reality
Speak to thee
Death be life
if lived in exile from honesty
May your ashes fade in the wind
as though you never were or came to be

Death Becomes You

Artist's Description

during dark times… i coped through script… amazing how someone that was once a stranger burrows under your skin like a bark beetle… how that same stranger becomes so important that with the loss of him/her… you are left with less of you.
