Step after step I move forward.
Into the abyss,
Into the pit
Black, thick, silent,
The pool is filled
Yet the tar is so bleak and empty.
Fully submerged there is nothing,
Nothing but me
Nothing to smell hear or see
So I focus on me
I feel all the pain as the air leaves my lungs
As the pressure of all that I’ve done bears down upon my chest and back.
Bones bend and muscles contract.
That last bit of air
Right before sweet eternal sleep
Escapes into the darkness
And for that moment the pain stops and the pressure fades…
I am cold.
I am lost.
Floating back to the top…
And life is restored…until next time.

Tis midnight, no star shining,
My sorrow is nearly burning
All my soul, within me, stirring,
In my heart all hopes are dying.
As I watch you, dead you're lying,
There upon the velvet poppet,
Like a cursed, lethal prophet,
“Oh, my love! “, my poor heart crying.
But the echo still replying,
In this gloomy, hated tower,
In this late nocturnal hour,
Still you’re lying, not replying.
It is now no more worth trying,
Begging, weeping, pleaing, kneeling,
I have lost my happy feelings,
Only lying, not replying.
You look like an angel sleeping,
Filling my black heart with sadness,
Making me a slave of madness,
Angel sleeping, secret keeping.
Now beside you I am lying,
On a velvet, so smooth, poppet,
Smiling at that cursed prophet,
Happy, cheary, almost dying.
Our bodies the spell is binding,
And there is no more life in love.

The wind was blowing when she left the city...
I believe it was twenty below...
Where she was going she already knew...
But... first she had things she had to do...
Get rid of the body that was clear....
There were no options, it had to disappear....
The heater was broken and blowing cold air...
She could feel the ice, building up in her hair..
She had cleaned up the blood as best she could...
As she had hit him hard with that log of wood...
All she had asked him, was to light a fire...
To take off the chill in the house....
Do it yourself if you are cold...he snapped
And while you’re at it get me a cold beer...from the fridge..
It was early morning when she finally arrived at the bridge..
This was his favourite fishing spot...
She pushed his body off the pier...along with his ice cold beer..
And suddenly began to shiver and sneeze.....
Oh well, she said...this too shall pass..
When I get to the Florida Keys..
PS..this is the first in a series..watch for part 2.."gator bait..the dream "

I lover her.
Am madly in love with her.
But she was a cancer patience.
But still I love her.
I saw everyday how she was reaped.
Everyday she was turn apart.
My heart beat softly like it will tear apart.
It was sad knowing she will still leave me
It won't contain me
The thought will kill me.
But she told me she will stop taking treatment.
Not anymore she don't want to have high hope.
So I gave her special treatment.
Dose of love, but still she was dying.
And am still trying, trying to make her not to close her eyes finally.
But she next day I wanted to pull her cap.
Her hair fell off.
My beat, it skipped like it will rip off.
She smilled and said it okay.
I didn't want to lose her, I felt like going with her
But her last wishes before she closed her eyes was live on Chris.
She gave me a kiss.
I was praying but it of no use.
She was going to die anyways.
So I make everyday count, I never left one day without going out wif her.
Like nothing was going to happen.
But by the night death was walking around wanting to take her away.
I was scared. So I begged to give me the night.
I kissed her
She slept in my arm but in the morning she was gone.
