[Afterlife VS. Normal Life]


You washed your hands
From reality.
Hysterical, by your actions
I had become…
As I stared at your frozen corpse
For hours inside of years I cried,
Trying to bring you back life.
Back to life…
I‘ve tried….

From warmth to bitterness….
In bitterness to love….
I feel nothing for you now….
Nothing…
Nothing at all….

Should I feel your,
spirit transcending?
Is this your version
to a happier ending?
I sleep to dream of peace in you,
Only the picture I see,
Isn’t you,
the peace I search,
Inside of you,
It isn’t you…
It isn’t you…

Your pale face…
Blackened eyes….
Lying on your side,
A pale face…
In a bed of lies
I see you staring at my soul,
Longing for my death
In myself I fall….
Myself in death
I fall…
I fall…

Can I renounce my,
Beating heart?
To an afterlife
With a imperfect start?
Can I try to start again,
In birth renounced
To a beating heart,
This beating heart….
Imperfect start…
Afterlife,
Or a normal life…

~Afterlife….
Or a normal life…~

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
