A Poem by G!o

A tribute to the band


I remember my origin meeting you at the open door

That moment when I was robbed all I was living for

And I was on blood hunt for all that I could perish for

It felt like my life was once again at its beginning

I stood there as you separated me from the living


It was in you I found words that made me feel better

I love you because you reflected the best of worst in me

Like you’re the one who’s been haunted in the same waters

Now let your lips move me to paradise of the thoughtless

As you numb my pains ‘til I’m made of stone


When to everybody I was the fallen going under

You saw into my eyes that I was slipping to somewhere cold

Friends and acquaintances abandoned me in the world behind

But it was your sweet voice that again made my blood alive

And in the arms of your tunes I was saved ‘fore I was undone


Now as I wake up this morning from a thousand years

To betray myself behind the mask and be everybody’s fool

I scream for you to wake me up ‘fore I reach the bottom

To defeat these confusing thoughts before I break again

I seek your voice to reach down the core where I lay cold


Many other guitar strings may shower down on this stage

And their screams may try to captivate the sanity left in me

But it is the scars of the first love that will never forever heal

It is you my immortal who swam me home aloft all of my fears

I hold my breath hoping this isn’t the last song you’ll waste on me

Author's Note

So this started as a dare from a pal to write about my love for music and how a band has walked with me in my life. So i chose Evanescence since it is the band that mostly influenced my writing and still influences, and from their songs and my experiences i brought this piece to life. I hope you enjoy it. Cheers.
