 Beyond Terra

"Aftermath"

my tears are falling, calling me through the sounds of rain
broken heart aching, winching from all the pain
echoing inside etched ears_ "sound the alarm sweet soul"
tattered dreams fell and crashed upon the shining dash
stunned, dazed, pondering the meaning of it all
written on the wreath worn upon my head
"sound the alarm sweet soul"

I am standing _ "Standing" merely because I can.
holding faith in my hand barely_ because I am
no one else can endure _ none other than
an unwilling sacrificial lamb

drinking back the sweat of fright and fear
work of my goals and struggles all these years
up in smoke, in one stroke
smiling face show not the burden I bear
among the many out-of-touch and unaware

picking glass from my hair, scratches mark my neck
the love of my life’s left dying; a heap, a total wreck
passing cars wheezing by take no means to care
darken eyes, covered shields, bland blinding stare
raise up this mortal coil, cast light to my silhouette
