If All Else Fails

Lying on a bed of nails
That pierce my tender skin
Load me up with concrete blocks
Soaked in last night's Gin
Depress the switch that kills the sun
Which burns my tired eyes
Expose the clouds and poisoned rain
While circling the skies
Drowning in a misty haze
In a land where no one lives
In a church where no one prays
And takers never give
Breathing becomes a full time job
Hearts skip a beat
Shattered souls refuse to sob
And sinners take their seat
Catsing stones with broken arms
Through waves of self deception
Inflating egos mighty charms
Behind discolored perception
Blood crawls down my back
From lying on the nails
Wearing a grin you could never crack
And I'll die if all else fails.

Whoa, this is a ride through dispair!  I've felt this way often myself.  I hope it gets into the book, though you might like to check it over for grammatical errors.

(big hugggsssssss) I have been here before too, dearest friend, I used to be cursed by these nightmares and felt it always crushing my head like a cobblestone! (sad sigh) This is powerful, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet friend, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton
