Thanks Hasty! I always enjoy writing with you.
Sometimes my heart beat is silent And my mind is too tired to think I sit inside my skin feeling empty As the world around me sinks Within this thick skin strides my soul a fruitless banquet of all my fears ravished by other's wraths and faults forcing anger while battling tears Reduced to an emotional skeleton Phantoms born from my breath Dance hauntingly in the dark Escorting from me life into death And that heaving spirit grips my veins as I stagger with a severed mind bracing desperately with my bloodied heels while my greatest strengths weaken me blind Supernatural love welled up inside me A spring of life never ending, flowing Washing away every crippling sorrow No longer wilting I once again start growing
