the tears in the rain,
in the haunting snowstorm that tirelessly pours,
a river in my cheeks,
an abyss in my heart,
flooded with pain and lamentations...

oceans of sobbing,
weeping seas,
blackest marshes,
fatal torments,
dead nightshades,
tearful withered roses,
poison ivies,
rusted mosses,
they distress and torture,
in endless pain,
in the deep holes of my soul,
which cries and cries,
in forever sadness and silence,
with no consolations...

the time for silence has come,
falling rain forming black oceans in my eyes,
the time for hollowness has come,
silent troupe that travels in the wind,
a pause between chime and chime,
the sound of the dead,
sinister silence that has come,
tombstones arise,
a pause between silence and silence...

    It is incredible how we can create such solacing places and yet be destroyed by them so quietly.

    I do like those suspenseful, repetitious lines, ie... Chime and chime... Silence and silence. Sinister. And very dark. You'll fit right in. Welcome. And write on.
