Gone

Happy Birthday to me…

Gone

Getting closer to my end I stand

barely scraping the surface of my life

pretentious in my attempts to find glory

as I wore my years with pride,

but dreams after time have dried

and I dwell in the middle of my story

with bloody hands holding the knife

that sliced away everything I am.

H.O.

In Passing

In Passing

Like stars so close and yet so far

the lives around a dwindling light

of memories recalled at night

the ones that left a trace or scar.

~

And none I’ll take away with me

when death shall come to claim,

none to keep and none to blame

for what it was or couldn’t be.

~

Like passing clouds across the sky

with time some memories are gone,

the lives that touch me deep inside

like distant stars to them I’m drawn.

H.O.
