Rookie (May 14th 1990 / Honolulu Hawaii)


i feel like i've been locked up,
behind the door of a padded cell,
with only the rememberance of love, and life.
i recall a past where love and pain was real,
but now its all just in my head.
all i wanted to do was forget the pain,
forget the shame
i took the blade and made the cut,
drank the bottle 'til its last drop
ate the pills
like it was the sweet candy of happiness
'til the moment i lost it all
i couldn't feel my own heart beat beneath my flesh
'nor feel the warmth of anothers embrace.
i only wanted to be free,
from the pain of hurtful memories.
i tried to put on a happy face,
and pretend it was all ok, but it wsn't
and i recalled the day
i took the blade and made the cut,
drank the bottle 'til its last drop
ate the pills
like the sweet candy of joy
forget the pain
forget the sorrow
nothing but this numbing bliss,
and here i am again
behind the walls of this padded cell
with only the rememberance of a life
that was mine,
and is no longer...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
