For Charlie

I'm not sure if writing, after you've watched Grave of the Fireflies, isn't detrimental to a writers sanity...You could get stuck writing morbid pieces for months! I must admit, there is something very alluring about writing absolutely depressing phrases; as long as you don't turn completely perverse that is :) I'm reminded of Lemony Snicket. He had negativity down to a playful art.


Destitute. Deprived.
So dearly I have paid.


For loss of joy; never to be regained.


Withdrawn. Forlorn.
Though frightened I carry on.


My already faded strength is failing.      


Weakened. Wearied.
With all resistance gone.


Reclining; I relinquish my struggle.


Shattered. Shot.
I succumb to silence.


Now my heart ebbs with a gentle throbbing.  


Burning. Bereaved.
I've broken past mending.


Burying myself deep, I become transparent.


Wheezing. Winded.
I wither away.


Painfully I perish, mortally betrayed.
