there was no sunrise

in another empty bed,  there i was, wrapped up warmly in desolation –

full of empty memories seducing the knocking pain of a tomorrow that’ll never be!,

oh!, in a suffocating blanket, there i lie.

still dancing,  she’s always there,  in my mind,  in the words i write.

the loss of sleep was always made up by the entertaining of ideas of a her and i

but as time came around, i was the only fool,  dejection drips on the floor below.

*

my feet planted firmly in each step i take,  one after the other

quietly,  softly,  closer i come where the now becomes the point of no return

the chair i set,  the rope i toss over

the dawns light still darkened in the early morning sky,

stars cascade and sparkles,

everything falls.

everything falls.

set the loop, tie the knots.  there was no sunrise

end table light glows as my head jumped through the loop,  and there i stand.

with a racing heart,  the chair falls from underneath

with a crack of ones neck, there i am – left swinging up in the air

but as time came around,  i was the only fool,  dejection drips on the floor below

everything falls,

everything falls.
