Last Thoughts

those summer days seem so clear to me
holding on to you, yes you, held on to me
these welcome thoughts of you
happiness is what you swore to me
tone of your voice made me believe
and now I’m….

numb,
there is no pain
not for me
not anymore
oddly comfortable and almost at peace
this crimson ground on which i lay

ambition. success. failure. regret.
not for me
not anymore
copper coins, such a bitter taste
shaking now with no excuses

those summer days have long since past for me
letting go of you, no, you let go of me
these unwelcome thoughts of you
happiness is what you stole from me
tone of your voice forced my leave
and now its….

dark,
there is no light
not for me
not anymore
familiarity has bred contempt it seems
lessons learned and betrayals made

love. hate. courage. fear.
not for me
not anymore
brimstone, such a bitter smell
choking now I can hardly breathe

and now it’s…

quite,
there is no sound
not for me
not anymore
I’m holding the knife like you held my hand
and there is a note i hope you read

envy. pride. malice. guilt.
not for me
not anymore
close to death, a bitter soul
thinking that it’s now time to go
