Life Beyond You
Life Beyond You.
At the core of my heart, where the air is cool
And the pieces formed have slowly parted,
Lies the innocence used as your only tool
Since the day when your hunger started.
I remember the day our lives began,
Cocooned in a silver cloud,
But I knew I was right when I turned and ran,
Our dreams, burned in a shroud.
I tried to think what I did wrong
Or whether it was even me,
But your hate was as fierce as the day is long-
The day when you set me free.
A blow to the head would have been quite tough
Or a bullet through the chest,
But the way you killed me was just enough
To lay me down to rest.
How clever you were! I remember thinking
When you dismissed every word that they said,
But the evidence was clear, and your life was sinking,
Whilst I slept silent in an eternal bed.
But as I watch you now, with your head held high
Smothering your face in a grin,
I make my way forward with a smile and a sigh
And I know you cannot win.
For I know your greatest fear of all
Of which you cannot see.
Your life, my dear, is due to fall,
And waiting there is me.
