Inspired to the silver saline that falls daily from your cold, dead eyes.


Act One:
Silver Saline

White stars against
a pitch black sky
fading through the night

leaves beneath
running feet
trampled half til dawn

eyes leak
silver saline
into the velvet darkness

a velvet sky
absorbs the sounds
of a silent sweet release

cold hard ground
falls to meet
a head of cold red hair

silver saline
mixed with
crimson darkness
cold red
and streaks of
warm grey

falling through
layers of black
caresses on bare skin

silver saline
splashes down
rivers on a face

soft lips
trapped
in an eternal kiss

silent screams
echo through
the velvet night

silver saline
mixed with
crimson darkness
cold red
and streaks of
warm grey

silent screams
of eternal agony
no one hears
til too late

half til dawn
a figure lies
prone on the earth

the hard glare
of sunrise
catches on the stars

silver saline
mixed with
crimson darkness
cold red
and streaks of
warm grey

a single drop of
blood and tears
balances on the knife


Act Two:
Crimson Tracks

bright lights
shine down on
an empty stage

a lone figure
sits in the
empty audience

silent sobs
echo through
the theater

solitary sorrow
scrawled against
the wall

a tragedy
performed with
utmost perfection

silver saline
falls to
soft velvet

a bright
white star
fallen into darkness

defeated figure
takes the stage
for the final last performace

a stark black
outline against
the bright white stage

silver saline leaves
crimson tracks
against soft pale skin

imaginary applause
rings through the
empty theater

silver saline leaves
crimson tracks
across my life


Act Three:
Soft Pale Notes

falling softly
against
soft pale skin

silver saline
frozen into
freckles of ice

drops of snow
fall
like rain

the only angels
lay carved
in snow

soft notes
of a sad sad song
drift through the night

the singer
stands cold
in the darkness

soft pale notes
from soft pale lips
tinged blue

generic snowflakes
drift gently
up to trees

notes like leaves
drop softly
into ears

a sad song
sung by
a sad life

soft pale heart
speaks through
soft pale words

silver saline
carves tracks
in unbreakable ice

indigo sunset
compliments
ice blue skin

sliver saline
falls on unmoving
soft pale skin
