one last step and find I never lived
by fingernails the gap is bridged
I've reached the end of time
no bargain plea I confess the crime
should I break one more leg
or swallow pride and learn to beg
read the book and start to rage
you can always write one more page
but I have run dry of all my ink
my suited armour complete with chink
I'll take the blame for a no show
because there's nowhere left for me to go
it never rains it always pours
and what goes around will even scores
so I'll take yet another hit
making sure the bullets bit
and wait 'til next time round
to rediscover what I found.




 hello darkness my old friend

Life can certainly be a bummer. Something can usually be learned through the tough times though. Great writing, Patrick.
