suffering the burn

gripping numbness
ripples across my face,
infinite timed tears
burn through my skin, 
glittering a fire
of unrivaled suffering 

grief beyond measure 
rips apart my psyche, 
keening at a moonless sky 
I am bereft of my star,
mourning an existence in pain 
filled with belief of miracles

all is lost, stop the clock 
mark the time, the name,  
mine, pack my horses Pa 
I'm on the long muster 

an avalanche blocks
uncertain futures, 
an effortless hope 
once lied fingerless, 
every rocket launch
failed to reach orbit
amounting to nought,
I am falling to earth 
as the ash of ash, 
the dust of dust 

stumbling steps
will halt their gait 
tearing eyes will dry,
the pain, the agony 
in the heart of my soul 
and body, will end 

no words of sympathy 
erase the inevitable, 
no act or deed can halt
a steady march to death 

when the breathes
that rise my chest, stop,
when I find a peace
in which I can eternally be,
this agony will have ceased 
a horrendous burden lifted away

my one last regret
is to have seen
the power of love,
my deepest feelings 
warmed in it's audience, 
Yet nay, I've never felt 
its eternal glory 

I am a mother of miracles 
loving them with every breath, 
I have been a student
of breathtaking intellects, 
observing absolute joy
in the ways of happiness 

I've been witness 
to the greatest of man,
and of terrifying evil
executing the knight's  

Whole species 
have altogether disappeared,
whole countries
crumbled under dictators

a chasm forms
writhing death,
screaming aches 
clench and burn
tied to the stakes 

I don't want to see anymore
grant me absolution
give me permission
to fly into the firmament 

common sense, isn't quite
as common as it seems,
and true love is as rare 
as rocking horse shit

I wasn't meant to be 
this life wasn't for me, 
I've wasted all my time 
now I am lost in rhyme 

yet, ever fearful 
of a drought of words, 
is to have never been 
seen or even heard 

talking to the father 
unto him I pass my cares,
nary a sound or cry falls
to suffer with the fears 

Time will regretfully arrive 
to say adieu, to kiss you goodnight
that's not here yet my darlings 
I'll can have infinities forevers,
granted true love finds life

mayday, mayday,mayday 
I am crashing, in flames  
SOS !! I am an inferno, yet,  

in all this ? I still burn, to live
to arise alight a fire of love.
