‘cos this world ain’t enough…


So tonight,

I’ll feel your

pain

resonate w/ mine

from 4gotten

days

when I too really needed

2 jump off.

But couldn’t, while you just did.

And

I do

feel our pain

now you’re

far

far

far

from this mortally tight coil,

coiled

in

round

& down

our throats:

this only life,

not quite made

for the full hearted –

those

like you

who cannot cease 2

feel its

pain

bleeding through smatterings of

joy

laced w/ pain and even more

pain.

Must I

still then

feel this pain,

wrenching pain,

tonight,

w/ you receded

w/ much regret

w/ no recourse

to

say:

“everything’s gonna be alright,”

even when

love

of

life

just won’t do

for

you.
