Final Fantasy

words travel miles
in herds 
dripping waterfalls of tears 
filled with irrational excuses 
conveying untold sorrow 

scurvy of soul 
multicolored by disease 
intangible to touch 
but tasted in depths 
of forlorn poetry 
floating on pages 
of background laughter 

definitions abstract 
among defined emotions
searching superior shadows 
for elusive daylight
finding only 
prompted screams 
in every line

sweetly sour phrases
rich in texture 
yet void of hope 
dwell in margins

horrid percentages
conveying a poet's 
blunted blindness 
to forced cheerfulness

concluded distress 
written in indelible ink 
on minds and hearts 

penned with perception 
that suicide is never
painless

only a poet's 
final fantasy...
