Eulogy: 143

February 8, 2011 1 comment

Deeper and deeper I delve
My ultimate plan shelved.

Emotions revealed?

I think not Mercutio!

Aye…a scratch…just a scratch…in my heart.
A plague upon your houses? Nah just in my mind.

My lonely soul wanders the streets like a stray dog.
It knows not its way home.

Belief, the lacking metaphorical bone.
Once I believed in forever more.
Now let me weep over the corpse of my dead credence in it.

Take the Poison to my lips. Pass from this coil.
I fear it will not awake next to me and do the same in my honour.

 

Rest in peace my whimsical young foolish mind.

Robots.

I am a robot. Same path. Same day. Same speeches in my head. Same resistance to receive. Same reasons not to believe. Same thoughts in my mind. So many pre-designed reasons why to rhyme. Same futile desire to go to bed on time. Synced in with my peers. My mechanical dreams of a life beyond. Same old obsolete hanging on. The only that changes is you. But I’ve already explored that avenue. Now your weak whim to be different is merely the same. So prematurely ends your game. We are the robot.

What I am.

I was the difference between civil rights and you hanging from a tree.
The difference between fighting for what you believe and settling for what you merely receive.
Between landing on the moon and guessing what’s above, all too soon.
Between a happy family with two parents and a child who knows only hurt and pain.
Between community and discourse.
I was the thing that kept your kids safe on the street rather than dead on their feet.
I was the difference between having something to wake up for – man, they just don’t care no more.
Apathy just reigns free.
They got no use for me.

But this was back in the day when I mattered. Back in the back when I meant something.

In The End…

…you’ll find yourself floating and kicking your way across the ocean of life trying to escape from the shark of inevitability.

Surrender

Surrender your heart to me.
Take my breath away.
Place me next to your soul.

(based on a song of the same name from the Niraj Chag album The Lost Souls)

A Rainbow by definition just wouldn’t the same, You are the sun, colours and rain, You are the thing beyond bliss with no name.

Love:New

Wake up baby I got something to say
Actually lay there and simply just lay
I’ll tell you what I need to say in my mind

You are my new day
And then at night I look up to view the moon
And think my day has come to an end too soon

Before you, my eyes were permanently shut
I was colour blind.
Everyday was a permanent gaze of grey
Now I see the colour of your eyes in my every thought
The shape of your smile,
The gentle breeze reminds me of your voice
I pray for a gusty storm for all time
Your words would then be my life partner

I try and imagine a world without your presence
There is none.
Am I meant to say all this to you?
Give away the game?
Will your love for me then remain the same?

This is the period of the Honeymoon
Can’t give away my love and true thoughts too soon
So sleep baby I have nothing to say
I’ll observe you and cherish this moment
Lay baby lay.
