RESURRECTION REDUX
(10/17/07)


gliding
sliding
taking life
with such ease

pitfall
free fall
a chasm
of disease

dumbing
numbing
through a ditch
deep and long

stalling
crawling
in darkness
I belong

trying
dying
opposites
intertwined

save me
stave me
redemption
of the blind

leech me
teach me
my mind is
a prison

hand me
stand me
I'm ready
to listen

unleashed
released
stepping slow
in relief

open
hoping
finally
a belief

denials
more trials
then making
perfect sense

the fears
the tears
laughed about
in past tense

the miles
the smiles
far I have
come to this

alone
a stone
by myself
inner bliss

avoid
devoid
socially
deficient

you see
I'm free
not lonely
so content

don't judge
don't nudge
I'm better
off this way

I live
forgive
if you're not
asked to stay

I show
I know
a contempt
for your frown

guest gone
loud song
as the lights
are turned down

not pure
not sure
I welcome
coming night

portend
the end
I don't claim
to be right
