Staring Like A Deer Caught In The Headlight.

Poem By Ariel Morris

Staring like a deer caught in the headlight,
You were taken from us, one of the few;
Run, run away from the hideous light.

Though sky's cried and the dark roared, you were right;
And now your eyes burn like the moon anew;
Staring like a deer caught in the headlight.

Hood up, hair down, your eyes gone from the sight,
Your fear must have shown in the vivid street hew;
Run, run away from the hideous light.

And you who lived life to its fullest height,
Ran down you number before it was due;
Staring like a deer caught in the headlight.

Dead men who see you there let there be light,
To show your mind in flight seeing the blue;
Run, run away from the hideous light.

And you my friend here no longer fly kites;
Look down on us and laugh at our pity pews;
Staring like a deer caught in the headlight.
Run, run away from the hideous light.

Self Appointed Berakdown

Love and hate filling my head, when will it all end?
Love and Faith filling my grave, how full will it get?
these things running through my head.
Dealing with it has gotten to bo too much.

Pain.

Pain: I wish it not to know my name.
Pain: simply the embodiment of thought.
Thought: an exchange of idea in ones mind.
Thought: an impassive wanting.

Alone

Alone she sits....
Alone she waits....
Alone she hopes and prays...
To be rescued....

My Heart Is Aching.

My heat is aching, my heart is breaking.
When will my pain end?
When can I begin again?
Till the end I pray not.

Slit The Wrist And Let It Flow.

Hate and pain, feelin’ it in my veins.
Hate and pain etched in my mind.
Love and hate are all the same,
Life and death are all our problems, but you treat them as there mine.
