<< Broken Bubbles
When all my flowers blossom black,
And all my lifelines stretch and snap,
Cut free my anchors to this world.
When glitter fades and crumbles away,
And I pray for release each and every day,
Sever all that binds me to this world.
When emotion is decreed by the pills I take,
And all my bubbles always break,
Release me from a nightmare world.
When vivid sunset fires are bleached,
And dreams spiral hopelessly beyond my reach,
Let me follow them beyond this world.
I'm quite fond of this. It's old and I never did get round to entering it in that contest but I like it anyway
