Seperate and undetermined destinies

by August   Sep 26, 2004

What is a knife
But an escape from bitter endings
A plunge into empty space is not a fall from grace
Sweet release from a predetermined journey
Is what has brought me to this place

I stand here before
The judges of time
The case before society opens at last
A trial of lives, power, and destiny
Cannot destroy the pain of the past

Hiatus said
But never performed
I step off a tier of my life
The drop to infinity takes finite time
The black begun to cover my strife

My mind springs to images
A future has ended
Travels, travails following time
Slip the knot on a concrete destiny
Mine life was hers, her life o'er mine
