At the edge of life (part 2)

Sounds of horror in the raging night
 Gasps of fright
Lots of fights
I can hear your loud silent screaming prayers as I stand in this moment
 Your angry, hateful, painful thoughts in my head make me shake in the dark and it
captures my soul in a careless way
Voices of others is leaking into my mind 
Is it a gift from the lord?! Should I be grateful?! Should I help who I can hear?!

The despairing voices made me age quickly 
The wrinkles around my eyes are growing as I grow.

And so it begins
 As I prepare to pass the vale of the nights and leave the earth behind, I give the wind a
moment to touch my wrinkled face and say goodbye, with my sight frozen at the edge of my
life, just a step to front will take me to an eternal sleep where no voices exist!

A drop of the rain clears my head

Parties, funerals, heart attacks, cancers, beer, drugs, running away from death, running
to death...silliness!!

Standing among all human in this world as death stand aside, waiting for me to climb above
its balmy wings, with the relentless screaming voices in my head
I try to cover my ears for the last time
with my hands reaching the hands of god
 With my lips calling for help
With my eyes looking at the eye of the sky, to the lord to whatever is above me with the
higher power
I pray for forgiveness which I need the most, as I stretch in the sun-as if the sun is
mine- saying goodbye

Step forward...flying an amazing feeling! 

Acidic tears from the depth of some growing despair are dropping from my eyes with the
falling rain
every tear feel like knives stabbing my soul though I don't know any more is it tears or
is it just the rain; no’s all gone.
My life slips away from the day of my birth till the day I say goodbye to this world
I can see every day I lived
Every memory I have crashing at the beginning of my eternal by one 
Lots of sorrows and pain
Lots of joy and pleasure
Love and hatred
Hopes and dreams

every story should have an end and mine will finish now...

Goodbye to all gods’, human creation, to all madness, to all thoughts.
Forgive me for I couldn’t help

Wet, red ground under me, pain I can feel but not for too long
Cars, children, screams, war, and fights!!

Suddenly nothing!! Just emptiness!!

Freedom at last!

    Ps. Smile ~ One last thought, which emcompasses All of Life...."If," there comes a change of heart &, "Everyone," begins to do "Their Part" well then, "Yes," I do somehow see a "Hope" wherein perhaps, once upon a time it may have never lived!? ~ That is, "If"....Smile, "Beautiful Poe; Have 'A Beautiful Day;'" Bye!:) ~

    Smile!? ~ Sounds so very despairing & yet, so very amissful amid the very same breath &, I would humbly although sincerely recommend that, a shift in paradigms sight amid the eternal kaleidoscopes visions would be, a step towards a clearer, truer & more beautiful moment of embracings soon to come, glorious colours bound within, "Light & 'Loves, Beyond Profound, Visions!!!'" ~ Smile, "Ahhh, 'Breeeathhhe'" ~ "Beautiful, Lovely, 'Soulfelt Poe'" ~ "Love & Warmth to You & Yours," John!:) ~
