“Of everything that stands, the end”…

Some things are…
Beyond our control…
Scars are formed where…
Once was a bloody hole…
And pain is injected…
Deep within our souls…

Leaving us numb…
Wishing life had never begun…
And the Devil had won…

Taking over our actions…
Controlling our reactions…

To what gets said…
As words embed…
And roll around in our head…

Forcing us to lash out…
Some days we scream and we shout…
Anger filled, yet laced with doubt…

What have we become…
Where is our youthful Sun…

That we gazed upon…
Whilst singing songs…

When innocent and young…
When life was fun…

Playing in the park…
Hide and seek in the dark…
Embracing life’s spark…

Not knowing other ways…
Ignorant to darker days…

It seems so long ago…
From there to here, we know…

So much more…
We opened the door…

And it will never close…
This path we chose…
Our souls we expose…
On knees and elbows…

Waiting…
Hesitating…
Because this was all of our making…

Biting the apple…
Burning down the chapel…

Turning our backs…
Allowing the attacks…
As we fell through the cracks…

Out of all control…
With no chance of parole…
For our tainted soul…

Sucked into the abyss…
Where nobody will miss…

The beat of our heart…
As we slowly depart…
To navigate the star chart…

Seeking out lost friends…
One last appointment to attend…
At our journeys end…

  1. Going thoughtful (and maybe even sentimental?) again with this one? I really love finding out about this ‘other side’ of you! I know the grim, creepy poems are more your thing, but I really love this too! ^^

  2. I loved the picture as I loved the words J, though it sounds negative for me. LOL But you know how I love happy endings. 🙂

  3. i’ve come to appreciate poems that inadvertently end up dropping me on my ass so to speak..that wonderful twist of the knife that leaves you reeling and thinking “wow” at the end. Just for me happy endings are too frequent. I see a darkness in this write Jamie though it isn’t blatant. Love your work and adore the Doors..Cheers !!
