Survivor Poems

Far beyond what seems to be
Far beyond reality
I can run
And you can never catch me;
Confusion rings the sun, and I
No longer part of one, can die
Setting free
The demons haunting me;
Questions crashing on my shore
My mind demolished - nothing more
But the silence of their wake;
I seek aloneness in my grave
I can if need be even save
My sanity
But why, and for who's sake?
The raven had the answer right
When in the middle of the night
Spoke, "Nevermore."
And left the dark room empty.
