Never Again

(2011)

The flutter of a bird taking flight,

The fade of the stars at dawn's first light.

Never again will the senses feel,

Never again will the dreaded thoughts reel.

.

Day falls to darkness

Life falls to death,

Never again will this mind truly rest

Never again will these eyes see the sun crest.

.

The day never dawning

The chest never falling

Never again will sweetness be tasted

Never again will another breath be wasted.

.

Silence now the only sound,

Is that the peace that was to be found?

Never again will a sweet smile grace,

The planes of that deathly face.
