Your music speaks and I inhale
Stricken down the mighty gale
Calms and soothes the rangy beast
Flocks the earth for famineís feast

Wither down the after glow
On my knees I will bestow
The razorís edge a heart felt kiss
And dangle from the precipice

Add one more note of harmony
And it will be the end of me
If my heart shall suffer spasm
Iíll fall into the yawning chasm

And there my heart be held in sway
For Ďtil your music comes my way
Iíll fill my lungs with my despair  
And cough gray smoke into the air

Tickle my throat with your kiss
Haul me from the precipice
Raise me into the funnel cloud
Bury me with a sinnerís shroud

Walk my bones to the limosuine
Shade me from the mournerís scene
The storms you send are from hell
Soothe me from the dying knell

The last fading scent of your perfume
Darkness falls and the light consumes
The breathing stops the calm is grim
I hear sung my favorite hymm

My eyes are losing their conceit
My heart stops from rhythmic beat
The razorís edge is searing hot
And life all seems it was for not

I hear my mother sing to me
The calming comfort brings to me
The dusty shroud falls to the floor
Babe in motherís arms once more

Buried alive I was



†in a canyon in a cavern excavatin for a mine
dwelt a miner forty niner and his daughter clemintine!!! yeehaw!

WOW, a very dark poem, some fantastic images,  

Tickle my throat with your kiss
Haul me from the precipice
Raise me into the funnel cloud
Bury me with a sinnerís shroud

Walk my bones to the limosuine
Shade me from the mournerís scene
The storms you send are from hell
Soothe me from the dying knell

The last fading scent of your perfume
Darkness falls and the light consumes
The breathing stops the calm is grim
I hear sung my favorite hymm

WOW again, I really enjoyed this one,
A great read. I sense alot of agony in the words, I hope every thing is ok.

This is brill, Walt! It was like a movie playing itself in my mind's eye. Wonderfully descriptive.

Love and hugs,
Lizzie
