Cry


I haven't got alot to say so lets just end it here.
This is the end of the line my dear, don't cry
I don't want to hear.
Before you left me, but now I'm leaving you, This is all so unreal,
It can't be true, say it isn't true.
Listen to my laughter, listen to your tears,
This wasn't how you wanted it and yes I heard you beg.
Pleading for one more chance, you cried, this can't be all there is!
There's nothing left for you here now,
What're you going to do?

Offer yourself, To the Wolf's cry,
Live and die, right by his side.
Offer your throat to the Wolf's teeth,
Give your blood, sacrifice.
Offer your spirit to the Wolf's soul,
Give your last breath so you won't die anymore.
Give your bone to the Earth crumbling beneath the Wolf's feet,
You've lived now die, I hear shame in your cry.

Listen to my laughter, listen to your tears,
How do we know that this world is real and not a dream as I fear?
The dream world is the real world, subconciously tell the truth,
It'll set you free, I'll set you free, why live one more day with me?
This was how I wanted it, worked for it and created it,
Just so I could complain about it and then destroy it.
Open up your hearts apocolpse,
The end is near, it's you I fear...

Offer yourself to my cry,
Live and die, right by my side.
Offer your throat to my teeth,
Give your blood, sacrifice.
Offer your spirit to my soul,
Give your last breath, one more try, hurry up and die.
Offer your bone, to the dark Earth beneath my feet,
And feel glorious.
You've lived now die, the shame is mine to cry.

    I am, for once, almost speechless!

    Beautifully spiritual, Laura, and deeply moving.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
