    Charon, keep the change.
    Glimmers in the children's eye.
    Sparkling of hope.
    For I have known them all already, known them all:
    Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
    I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
    I know the voices dying with a dying fall
    Beneath the music from a farther room.

    So how should I presume?
    Eliot

    sparkling of hope
    in a string of Christmas lights
    one burns out — all will

    "Oh, yes, I do."

    cardboard wings melting in rain
    future trickles down

    pieces of yesterday's child
    shattered consciousness

    Shattered consciousness,
    Colours drip out of their hands.
    A cherry on top.

    Completes a piece of beauty
    Which sates my hunger.

    Which states my hunger,
    empty plate, dinner table-
    a whirlwind of sorts
    Dreams! adorations! illuminations! religions!
    the whole boatload of sensitive !

    winter storm-a snow globe of
    insatiable grace

    Instatiable grace,
    Unfathomable fate comes.
    A heartbeat away.

    a heartbeat away
    from flatlining, there is you,
    waiting in the wings...

    Waiting in the wings...
    for the final curtain call
    of Death's masquerade

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. ~ Edgar Allan Poe

    of Death's masquerade,
    dagger gleaming in the hall,
    in 2 minutes - death.
    Dreams! adorations! illuminations! religions!
    the whole boatload of sensitive !
