Alone

Maggots thriving in my rotted chest;

Almost impossible to decide

What to do about the rest.

I hear footsteps, time to hide.

You must know I can't stay strong,

Not now, not ever. I cry.

But then, no one hears my song.

I cannot bear to see you die.

It would be the end of me,

I think. And then the only now is Pain.

A terribly burning sea,

And all of it in vain.

Because you're already gone,

No getting you back this time.

And I'm lost in the cold dawn,

Missing my partner in crime.
