Let Us Prey...





The parish priest

Peddled through town

Preying on sinners

'Fore the sun went down

Moments Spent...



Oh, the ache

Of moments spent

How quickly

The years unfold

And fade away

Who?...



Who will miss me

When I die?

Not you

Nor they

Nor earth

Nor sky

Only the bugs

That feast

On my flesh

When my corpse is

Stripped

And only bones are left

The Turn...



Youth now spent

As age stomps on

Leaves wistful thoughts

Of all that's gone

'Cos now where once

I did turn heads

My wizened form

Turns stomachs instead!

When I Am Gone...



When I am gone

I shall not miss

That which I was

Nor shall I miss

That which

I might have been

I shall miss only

That which I never was

To you

Home...



Home lies not

Where the heart is

For the heart is fickle

And easily distracted

Home lies where

The soul best fits

And for some

Such a place 


Holds a darkness


Like no other

Alone...



Sometimes

Being alone

Is too much

Of a crowd
