In Praise of Petrus

In Praise of Petrus

A Poem by GTVile

A song dedicated to Peter Steele. My pathetic attempt at a short in memoriam.


Jesus Christ looks like you,

Where have you gotten to?

Taken from us to soon,

That April afternoon.


Peter you're dead again,

This life will not regain,

A loss that we can't bear,

The end of a sweet affair.


A dark arcane genius,

Came along to free us,

Such an abrupt depart,

Tearing whole worlds apart.


Where have you gone?

Where have you gone?

Where have you gone?

Where have you gone?

So sad. When I lost my brother I remember repeating those lines, "Where have you gone?" But I guess, loss is something no one will fully understand but something everyone just has to except. I love your emotion in this piece. Sad poem but great poem! :)
