Empath In flames

(29.08.1985 / Australia)

[Fallen Angel]


Why,
Am I prisoner?

Why,
am I trapped in this world?

(I need to the key before I loose myself.)

I don’t wanna feel love.
I don’t wanna feel pain.
But the things you put me through
intoxicates my veins.

I saw you with that other guy,
I clench my fist with rage.
How can you do this to me?
Just because of my age.

Now I’m at the edge of a cliff,
with fire in my eyes.
Look at what you’ve done to me
now I believe I can fly…

I’m flying…
like a angel in the sky.

This feeling won’t last long
I don’t have any wings.

I’m falling….
The angels turned to stone.

Even when I’m facing death
you are there….
Witnessing my last breath.

    99% of all species that ever lived are extinct. No problem you will ever have will last more than say, oh,80 years? Angst leads to great poems. And this is a great poem! Thanks, Bob (Report) Reply

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
