If Only We Sing

If Only We Sing

A Poem by Gaige

Another heavy dose of cyanide
Head filled with butterflies and empty space
Losing myself in the clouds
On the edge of a God complex
Luckily I'm too lazy to find the truth
The top starts its spin and ends pointing at you

Searching for the loss we'd never find
Look down on such a small world
Grind and writhe to a beat noiseless and sublime
Prophets preaching words unspoken, blind
Walls closing in; too boxed in to think outside the box
Trying to contemplate my universe this one last time

Prepare for the fall you've dreamed of
That delightful nightmare that doesn't end
Sleeping soundly and cold six feet down
Cadence in the silence

Putting burdens aside
In bleak blackness nothing matters but the end
Ask yourself some perplexing questions
Quickly now your consciousness is caving in
Was your journey worth it? Did you win the mortal race?
Because the finish line you steadily ran to
Happens to be a breathless grave

All that remains of your world
A worn grave bearing your forgotten name
One day all that is left is everything that is gone
No remorse for the buried
For the dead sing no song

Author's Note

Gaige
Because our time is limited and we only have one chance our time means something. This is what death means to me. Don't regret; you don't have time to. As for this piece... just wrote it on a whim. Maybe I'll come back to it and maybe its perfection lies in its flaws. Hope you enjoy :].

I can't really even find the words to explain why this is so great. The words you chose, the flow, and especially the topic. Truly incredible, nice job.

I really liked this. We all have our own views on death and topics like that. Some belive we go to Hell, others don't. We all have different beliefs. Some people regret and dwell on the past, others don't. The ones who don't regret are the ones who deserve the best that they try for. If they try hard enough, they should get a good enough reward in the end, as opposed to someone who didn't try at all. Each person is on a different level. It's all a part of the game of life.

Despite the fact that it was a bit long to read, I still enjoyed it! I totally agree with your thoughts that time is indeed limited and we shouldn't regret anything :)
