Premium Member too comatose to see
inextinguishable
is your appetency
for what you suspire

you feed on this drug
to make life passable
but by the same line
that educes endurance
it will transport
inevitable death

Where'd You Go Hunter
Where'd You Go, Hunter?

Were you being Earnest?
Or maybe, Kurt?
Took a bullet for your past
What caused the hurt?

You shouldn't have gone
You should have stayed here
But I guess you just had enough
Of the Kingdom of Fear

You had much more to offer man

Morning Cigarette
I'm nothing special 
And I ain't unique
But I know 
You dont feel
The same as me

Darling don't you know

A question answered
Asks a thousand more
Maybe cause I'm
Only asking questions 
On the floor

When I wake up 
And the sun is down
And my heads

Premium Member Who by Fire Ramblings
Who by fire
 watches the earth burn?

Who believes that matter
 is neither created nor destroyed?

Who burns their bridges behind them
 after walking across its form?

Who swims the water's edge
 treading through its unknown depths?

Who drowns his spirit
 in alcohol, drug,...Read More

Gone Like a Whisper
Oh isn't it unfair?
That,
Right there
Gone like a whisper  .
For something to be 
To really be,
Specials only vanish

Please,
Let me grab it 
Please,
Let me hold it 
I'll be careful I promise

But an idea never tarnished,
Why so eager to rot?
Why these children

I’ve never experienced hallelujah or come-to -Jesus moments
like I’m sure many religious folks do.

There are at least a dozen people waiting. 
They are in various degrees of need. 
Desperate for answers…
“They” will not receive here. 
But the very idea, 
of a cure, 
of something better. 
Draws them on.

Out of the gloom the dark ones rise
