MM (1991 / Bastrop, LA)


The silence is tearing me apart
I can't bear it much longer...
From screaming and arguing to this creepy silence now present
The problems began earlier today;
And carried on into the night

The kitchen is for eating food, not throwing it.
On to the living room, the fighting is getting worse.
Finally into the bedroom, where we now lie in the silence
We are close together, and yet, thousands of miles apart.
Why, I do not know
Actually, I do, but I dare not speak the reason.
In fear that it will break the eerie silence

As I lie here, next to my love...
My love, lying in a puddle of blood at my side
As I reflect on my dirty deed
That I had resorted to the knife lying on my night stand
To argue would be stupid, for I would be arguing with a corpse
The knife... Dare I follow my heart?
Should I pick it up and end my guilt
And send me into an eternal silence?
