Half Dead-Half Alive


Glance in the mirror
wondering why nothing seems right
beyond the tears reflection
a smile is remembered
not this sadness

Promises lay broken
dreams burnt to ash
Like shattered glass
these torn photographs
Mistakes made along the way
things that couldn't be erased
fragemented moments of a tragic life

A crimson river flows
from inside out
Ripped at the seams
from the emptiness within
In a dark place
where only tears dwell
so damn tired of it all

Half dead-half alive
breathing becomes shallow
A single heart beat
captured in time
Only close to the end
will the truth be known
When all hope has been lost
half dead-half alive

No way to hide
the fact that there was so much more
Still to be but yet unseen
more to the person in me
half dead-half alive...

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
