That is dead which
Can no longer arise
Or the look coming from
The depths of colorless eyes
That gaze upon one
Who is suddenly so despised

Yet speaking the truth
With words at first fair to hear
But cascade increasingly
Into tired and broken ears
Pursuing with relentless fervor
The sound of audible tears

Silence is to blinding light
What darkness is to a shout
As dying is to living
From hand to open mouth
And holding back in suppression
Explodes two fold when finally let out

The eyes are not alive
The ears are closed
And mouth opened wide

I've rarely read bitterness so acutely expressed. The rhythm, the content, excellent.

What darkness is to a shout
As dying is to living
From hand to open mouth
And holding back in suppression
Explodes two fold when finally let out

The eyes are not alive

damn, this is way cool...
scared of you jer,  
powerful piece..very well written
stalking you still,
your jm


 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...
