Here's A Start


I have heard the cry of the demon

In my brain, lookin' for "the change of season"

No one here ta make me believe it

Holocaust in 6 more months, I was told

Is that real, or a joke getting old?

When I look at my face

I still see no one

When I hide my eyes from the light

The structure of bein' forgotten

Reminds me that I am

No one

No one to live with

Thrown me away

No one to put up with

Not accepted in any way

I could not care if I was a man

"Look at me"

What's the use?

I will never know the truth

The proof is in the riddles

Take me to another season

I'm old and brittle
