Digging My Own Grave

Digging My Own Grave

A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*

Get out of my brain!


Small stones of concrete

Lives lost and some forgotten

In the darkened airy mist

Graveyard of past memories.


The perfect place,

The perfect spot

Pieces of me

Six feet beneath the ground.


Creatures of the night

Maggots and flies gnawing

At the tiny remains

Of my agonizing existence.


Hatred for the wrong

Liars and thieves

Taking everything, stealing

The innocence I once felt.


Swollen and tired hands,

I have worked too hard and long

Shooing away the flies

To forget these broken memories.


As I dig my own grave tonight

Broken memories will go forgotten

Stuffed within this coffin

Mourning the innocence you stole.


I will force myself to forget

The hatred that boils in my veins

Here lies my aching heart

Dead on the inside, its your fault.

You have a very vivid imagination and I love it. The creative way of expressing the bursting feelings of the character is well-written. Amazing work!

I like this poem. Need some sad piano music to create a feel of desperation and fear. I like the tale in the poem.
"As I dig my own grave tonight
Broken memories will go forgotten
Stuffed within this coffin
Mourning the innocence you stole."
No weakness in this outstanding poem.

(2nd chorus)
yeah, the perfect place!
the perfect spot!
pieces of me... YEAH!
six! feet! Beneath The GROUND!!!!!!!!!!...

this song/poem will be an instant mainstream success if it was ever produced.. the lyrics/verses (despite being kind of dire) have the potential of feeding so much life into the accompanying music.. great stuff Anna!

Sometimes the dark needs to be explored to retrieve the light.
You have painted an image of pain so vividly.
