Sweet Suicide Senerade

Sweet
Suicide
Serenade

how you
came to be

The tune
that came
to me

whilst in
the depth
of my sadness
see?

I could not
hide the pain
The sorrow -
or deep shame

The tears that
fell that night,
extinguised the
brightest light

Now in
a tunnel
I despair

All alone upon
this earth

The morbid music
played,
as I sat down
and prayed

And so alone,
I sit
And yes, I
do admit

that life for
me had been

a nightmare -
not a dream

All my hopes
and fears,
all my
wasted years

are as of nothing -
what's to show?
Just a man
who will die alone?

Sweet
Suicide
Serenade

Serenade me
to my doom,
within an
empty room

I sit within
the gloom

Sweet
Suicide
Serenade

Plays the
final bars
Plays within
my head

I exit
life

and
welcome
death

And so
alone
I hang

in silence
swinging -

no one's hand
did I hold
that final night...

for no one ever
held me tight...

And so
alone
I hang

My body
swinging -
silhouette

Lifeless in
the living room

my shadow
cast upon
the step

And so
alone
I hang

yet only
within my head,
did I hear
the music play

Sweet
Suicide
Serenade

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
