The Candle of Life

They don't understand me

What I'm going through

They say that they do

But that was then, and this is now

A close friend soon raising confusion

A RentHead like me…

A true fan

In more ways than one?

Who's to say there's anything wrong with that?

'Light my Candle'…destiny

Fell apart, drowned in my tears

An obsession, though new

Received within the past few months

Will long be staying with me

Until I die
Forever more

By the hour, every hour

In my head, until I'm dead

And nobody noticed

Nobody cared

But the few that did

Are always with me

Always have been

Always will

In this blur called life

Too long?

Or too short?

Over in an instant?

Out, out, brief candle!

The spots in life

Blurring my vision

Polluting my mind

Haunting me forever

Out, damned spots, out I say!

Never changing

Never leaving

The images of them

Remembrance of who, when, where, why, and how

Trying in vain to rid myself of them

Cleanse myself

Trying, trying

Failing miserably

And now I lay me down to sleep

One last time

I blow out my candle
