There is nothing wrong with fading.

wishing that I could
vanish here.

let me
deny
my existence,
let the light shine through my skin.

I am disintegrating,
allowing air to rush through,
escaping by the cracks in my head.

nothing but static
few cries are audible,
only the stinging screams
of millions of falling rocks.

tell me the difference
between flying and falling,
and I will tell you
what is real

a ghost
just passed through me,
or was it human?
I pass through myself.
I want to vanish-
following millions of fading lights,
with no one to ask me why.

I put the peices back together but sometimes they come out all deranged.

deranged...

deranged...

All walls are great, if the roof doesn't fall.

Now I have a David Bowie song stuck in my head. Which, coincidentally enough, Reznor produced.

==================================

the only thing I see rushing out of you is very cool poetry.
another uniquely Liz write.

You're the color of the sky reflected in each store-front window pane ...
You're the whispering and the sighing of my tires in the rain.

feel like that sometimes...vanishing can happen, but be careful what you wish for...it's no fun being a ghost

i think that it's brainless to assume that making changes to your window's view will gain a new perspective.

"tell me the difference
between flying and falling,
and I will tell you
what is real"

One can kill you, the other only feels like it will.     Applause again kiddo!

yeah we've all felt it at one time or another.

and Dunc I know.

sometimes you get both at the same time.

dunno...they are basicaly the same thing because gravity says...

who cares what gravity says.

I heard this song once called karma and it said that what comes up must come down. or maybe I made it up.

but my memory is pretty insane. as is my present self.

some situations with a lot of people I don't know freak me out. thats why sometimes I want to go *poof*

but then again it is kinda funny when I look back

I wanna go *poof* sometimes myself.  Fortunately, those days don't last forever.  Email me, I promise I'll answer.

First of all, love the crique message.

nothing but static
few cries are audible,
only the stinging screams
of millions of falling rocks.

tell me the difference
between flying and falling,
and I will tell you
what is real


I adore this.

"following millions of fading lights,
with no one to ask me why."

following millions of fading lights,
or following the fading of yourself

"a ghost
just passed through me,
or was it human?
I pass through myself."

or passing thought in wanting to connect with yourself

why?

you mean you have never been in a situation where you were so terrified or upset that you just wanted to vanish?

why isn't really the question....
