Excerpt
Dead Like Me

ďIíll be with you for the rest of my lifeĒ
I swallowed them all
Your words, your lies

Choking and gagging and gasping for breath
On my knees in this storm
You can handle the rest

Hollowed already by force from your hands
Broken by bruises
I canít understand

Inside this shell the scars are alive
Pulsing and bleeding
They smother my pride

Lifeless these eyes, windows to my soul
Searching no longer
For a meaning in this role

A hardened heart with little blood for flow
Is blackened, frozen
Iím not sure you know

Its skin under the nails of victims lost
So gone are all the dreams
In my life I had sought

Now nothing can warm these bloodless cheeks
Donít you wish you could be dead like me?



The Stars Wish to Dispel

Without you for months
Will be very hard
But late at night
I will look to the stars

Hoping and praying
You see what I do
Are the stars burning brightly
In your eyes, too?

Does Venus glow
And shine serene?
Is she even more beautiful
When youíre out at sea?

When you look at the sky
Does it glitter all the time?
Do the heavens dance
And sparkle at night?

Is the ambient light
From the moon surreal?
Does it make you sense something
You donít want to feel?

Because here itís too muted
And dark to tell
Of the radiance and light
The stars wish to dispel
