The Secret Of Life

Poem By Matthew Hyatt

To stare into eternity
Is to stare into your eyes
Perfectly holding the answers to the lies
I look at you, at your blank face
Knowing now the answers to time and space

As you lay there, you no longer fight
You're no longer my beacon in the night
The bond we had shall always last
Surviving through future, present, and past

Time is one thing you can't keep
Now as you rest in your sleep
I feel so empty as I sit at your side
For you have died.

My favorite, you have a talent, this one is a profound piece that I really felt.
The poem is stirring, an eternal connection even after death.
Well Matt, you've left me speechless.

Thanks For The Pain

Today is the day
I wanted so much to say
Thanks for the tears
Thanks for the fears


The twinkle of a star
the color of a car
is never seen and adored
By the one with the Ink-Eyes.

Sea Of Faces

Ten million people each with their problems
Why should anyone care?
They would only stop to gawk or stare
I see the city lights all around me

Majesty Turned Murderer

The ocean was once a place
Of beauty and grace
Nevermore shall it be
Since it took them away from me

Anticipated Dread

These bars, cold iron and steel
Like death's touch they feel
Keeping me in my place they stand firm
While trapped here bad thoughts churn
