Not My Own

Post by anonymous08 » Mon Jun 25, 2007 12:08 am

Need I remind you

It is not my own personal mourning

You fault to expect the howling, open cries of one heart ripped from another

The uselessness of body for any breath other than the ones used to call out to the eternally lost heart

The eyes that see only that which is unwanted

Other souls than the one they seek

These cries, these bones, these hollow black orbs are not mine

My loss is far inferior, and I almost dread to speak of it, yet to say the lost one is lost by me as well

So I hold a silent mind shrouded

To send sympathies from afar

Kept separate by a wall that holds those who truly lost

My darkness is in memorial

The only silence I am allowed

And in solemn stillness I watch the ascent

The wailing that follows

The emptiness

And hold a candle vigilant in my heart.
You couldn't be suicidal if your life depended on it.

there i go again, pretending that i'll fall

don't call the doctors!

they've seen it all before

they'll say just let her crash and burn

she'll learn

the attention just encourages her.
