I fall, waiting for blackness.
Bliss. Eternal sleep.

Think about it

            A shaking razor
      A hand full of pain killers
            A life we will miss

The Man in the Forest

He, hanging limply—
The branches his newest limbs—
Roots from suicide.

Senryu for Sadness

The abandoned skin
Thoughts dressed into nothingness 
Eternally gone

Senryu for Sadness Extended

Ecstasy gone 
Sun fades, embracing darkness,
Cradling the madness

Rope on demijohn
Clotted narcotic crassness
The chimney warmth, gone

The abandoned skin
Thoughts dressed in nothingness 
Eternally gone
