commanding, demanding without understanding....then freedom of the captive soul.


The Murder Of Death By Transfiguration

Smile!
you must smile
but, i don't feel like smiling

Move!
you must move
but, it hurts too much

Feel!
you must feel
but, I am numb you see

Laugh!
you must laugh
but, nothing is funny

Rise!
you must rise
but, I am too tired

Talk!
you must talk
but, i have no voice

Silence....

Bitch!

Slam!

Darkness; doom
cruelty leaves the room

~~~~~~

Smile! Look at my new image

Move! I can flutter my wings

Feel! I feel the air of freedom

Laugh! I laugh for the first time

Rise! I rise out of the bondage

Talk! I will speak of resurrection

Lightness; life
the butterfly leaves the cocoon!
