How This Works


Grave
Shattered
Sullen
Staring into the mass of destruction
People you knew
Your friends
Little more than broken bones
Make up the graveyards of today
Yesterday this dark dead place
Was a gushing sea of blood
Maybe you heard their sharp piercing screams
Maybe you watched them swallow and drown
Yesterday this place was ablaze
You could even see the embers in their eyes
When they reached out for help, you ran and didn't look back
But do you remember all the times which they dropped their dreams to help you achieve yours?
These people passing
You know, they're also dead
Their souls are dead
Their hearts are dead
Their minds are dead
Only their skeleton is moving
And one day that privilege will be gone too
But tomorrow is another day
What do you want to do
A cup of tea, perhaps
We can watch the world end again
My treat
We can hear then suffer
We can see them scream
Oh
And don't forget
Mommy and Daddy

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
