X20-Not Here - Poem by Jessel Jane Tevar Toring

(I suggest you read first the COLD WATERS)

-Victoria Brown-

Jane Spencers.
You stare at that name morn till night.
Have you regretted what you've done
as grasses slowly meet the sun?
I hated since the day you're here.
I hated you for taking life;
as though you havent got spiritual fear.
The last minute of my earthly life
was spent for begging breath;
and prayers and songs and broken smiles
just trying to escape my death.
But then you looked at the face of death
as though you loved him so.
And I, who wanted yet to live
never had a chance though.
But why still cry? You chose to die,
you should have smiles tonight.
This place is none for bitter lies,
haven't you thought it right?
It pained to see your pretty name
consumed by endless curse.
You shouldn't be here in this lone journey...
not here, Jane Spencers.
