    Bleak

    the bleakest part of me
     a revenant
    a ghost leftover
    with no will
    losing the strength
    to fake this anymore
    even though
    I'm dead inside
    my skin refuses to darken
    my soul will never blacken
    sand I cant wash away
    water I can't drown in
    keep breathing
    there is no oxygen
    people i meet
    are so fake
    play to the world
    like actors on a stage
    nothing inside me left to care about
    just a shell I'm tired of wearing
    and want to live without
    leave this mortal coil
    shimmer like silver
    captured in water and oil
    a rainbow of poison 
    I want to swallow
    trapped in a past
    that I cant alter
    escape the dreams
    of the people that haunt me
    these words are nothing
    but memories and pages
    the last act of someone
    dying in stages
    when moon meets sea
    when earth embraces night
    I'm last man on earth
    still willing to fight
    still trying to see
    even though you have all left me 
    to die and to decay
    to fall in a hole
    and decide to stay

    Title's accurate! Lol! Last man on Earth - interesting feeling in the pit of one's stomach - like the first time one goes out above their head at the beach as a kid. Is it a good or bad feeling? Seems neutral as it equates to fear of the unknown in a way. Speaking of which, Amad, have you seen Tiim Burton's "9"? It's a perfectly trip film, just like you'd expect. No let-down whatsoever with his latest! Dismal write! Check out my latest involving a ladybug. And I just finished a super extra juicy new one today! Gonna wait a few days to post it, you know, just for S's & G's, lol! (??) Tay.....en!!

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

    Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
