Empty Faces

I lie down
I die with a frown 
Smiles in the air
Surround my face in the group of stares 
Flat and skinny like a pick
I could fit in that graveyard next to that pit
Nobody came to throw a flower 
Only rain represented my feeling inside that grave
There was no invitation for my soul to fly away
I just sat there
Thinking about the scars on my face
How will I ever survive this day

    Like all other things. One moment at a time. Be good, kind and loving and when the time comes, many will bathe in the sorrowfulness of losing one such as you.
