Read Tomb Poems Online


i cry

i burn in a unrelenting fire 
i drown in overwhelming waters 
tears streak down my face
a smile spreads across my lips
i'm free among the clouds
i'm trapped in my tomb
feelings of love overtake my heart
feelings of hate envelope my spirit
i survive in the world around me
i live in my sleep,caressed by my dreams

there is a secret i keep even to myself
about the conflict within
if i admit to it i will drown
if i flee from it i will burn
if i....

i cry.
