Lines run deep in

thirsty cheeks.

Been tempted to

oblige them for

days now.

Tear ducts dried up

when heroes failed

and heart beats hardened

and faces turned away

to hide their horror.


Stillborn.

Still living.


Ive been dying for 22 years

but it makes no difference when

or how long.

Because all we do

is take different paths

from the hospital

to the cemetary.
