Off-Course Compassion


A dying flame still contained in my heart
It once burned bright but now restrained to a spark
So full of dispassion while being enchained in the dark
There's nothing to say
Just face the pain of the marked
May it break you apart
A cold heart sets your soul on froze
And the reason why?
Nobody ever knows
Not mad at the world but at the fact you're all alone
Now you live like a drone
Without a heart to call your own
Your walls of defense are surely standing firm and tall
Shielding you from the love
Hate
Happiness and all
This is when you can hear a baby's cry and feel nothing
When you yearn for death but when it comes
You're still running
You never get sleep
You're pinching pennies to get something to eat
All night you wander up and down the streets
What was once a good person
Now a moral-less slave
Made heartless by their wicked worldly ways
And how I behave is countercyclical
I know it ain't fair
But it's from all the times nobody seemed to care

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
