Alone - Poem by Perfect Fool

Come on, walk towards that light you see
At the end of the tunnel wait for me
I’ll be there soon, when I break free
From this world that’s holding me

This life that lasts beyond its time
Hold on, my friend I’m leaving mine
Its time to go, to say goodbye
Time to leave this pain behind

I’ve lost too many friends to pain
I’ve wandered through the empty rain
Stared too long through that window pane
And staggered up that silent lane

To feel alive, to live at peace
I need to feel deaths sweet release
The inward wars at last can cease
Put to rest my fallen beliefs

I’ll find you when my soul’s complete
I’ll walk that tunnel for us to meet
I never knew when I bowed at your feet
That deaths kiss could taste so sweet

My life is mine, and mine to save
Or mine to kill, this life I gave
I’ll welcome you. You’re being brave
As I rise up from my empty grave

Shiny, friendly knife-edged blade
All a part of this game I played
Down in the cold damp earth I laid
Got down on my knees and prayed

Let me sleep alone a while
Said comfortingly through a troubled smile
Travelled, I’ve been alone for miles
Another body on the pile

Looking up at falling down
Searching with a puzzled frown
Hunting for you all around
And praying you don’t let me drown

I see you sitting on your throne
Death before my eyes, I’m shown
Dead as a tree with all leaves blown
Finally, I am alone
