Tears fall gently wetting the page

I would scream in rage

But my heart would die

If I only could fly

Sharp knife with a beating heart

We must part

A short life

Ends with the press of that knife

The tears are not my own now

My mother in pain bows

Is it not funny how when your dead people start to listen

The page just glistens
