By Damien Knight

Another moment of sorrow I wonder why

Behind my eyes do these tears lie

And when I try not to cry

I find that within my soul dies

I woke tears streaming down

I am wet as if I were to drown

And not even you turn my frown

I can’t just turn around

I fall asleep no name

I am empty all the same

And life remains lame

Like a petty game

I can’t remember the last time I felt

This deck of cards that was dealt

Is like a harsh and heavy belt

The heat of the smack making the skin melt

I dream empty lies

And I know when I die

I will no longer cry

And no one will be at my side
