Today just a few lines I might incorporate into a song someday. Morbid me. But isn't the intense always a bit of that?

I tramp the parching earth
dig for a core so deep
it erupts from the ground so hard
it astounds the remotest star

I scrawl the secret dearth
unveiled through lack of sleep
that we clutch as our daily crust
till it crumples us into dust

I scratch and kick and crawl
and so we all shall creep
till we scream on the final night
as the possible slips from sight
