Life, Precious Life

Postby Dionysus » Mon Jul 24, 2006 6:03 pm

Lust. Unrequited. Quest for love abandoned.
Broken spirit limping down hope highway.
Red eyes see nothing, with perfect clarity.
Vision fades; burned out, seeking truth.
Pulsating pain. Searing pain. Incapacitating pain.
Staggering forward and losing ground.
Spiritual void. Starving sensitivity into drugnumbness.

6 billion alone together.

Deceptive moments mimic connection.
Reality crushes perception; humans lie.
Self awareness and self deception twisted
together in a rope of delusion.
Pain from the outside, pain on the inside.
Hope burning, love burning, enlightenment burning,
future burning, resolve burning, soul-in-flames.

Heaven is an illusion, hell is here.
We can never know about tomorrow.
Still we have to choose which way to go.

He not busy being born is busy dying.

Speak these words when I die: "Either hell just got more cheerful or heaven got more fun."
