Crazy Eight

Burn Away

Years have passed/I’m the only one left
I got nothing to do but count my regrets
And I do not think that I’m afraid
But I feel anxious as my semblance fades

So I live my life vicariously
Through different masks that I called me
And I do not think that it’s an excuse
It’s as asphyxiating as a tightened noose

So I…

Light up
Then I burn away
And I…
Light up
Then I burn away

I’ve lost the game that I had played
So I ignominiously return to my grave
Where I live within myself
Wishing that I lived within someone else

I’ve lost all that I had gained
I got nothing to lose but everything to disdain
And I do all I can to stay alive
But I’m not even sure if I wanna survive

So I…

Light up
Then I burn away
And I…
Light up
Then I burn away

I’m not too sure if I’ll awake today
Just to see what else has gone array
And I’m not too sure if I will rouse today
I’m too afraid to see if my qualms are here to stay…

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
