Anthony John Oliveros


Alone with the Alone


Last night as I cried in silence
When the soft wind realized the battle's consequence
The heart is almost done breathing
And the mind never stop thinking

Somehow the veins were cut
To surrender myself I dare not
Life is at the end of the shadow
While darkness appeared again through the mind's meadow

I never screamed for I was afraid
Scared if somebody noticed me
In a place where my heart is heavily laid
Without the chance to see

I guess I need to stop right now
But still my whole self is carried with pain
Love does not mean a vow
If it is carried by the unfaithful rain.
