alive to memory
dead in my past
seeking my memory
to haunt me with my pain
Who can stand that choice?
between life and certain death?
the pounding in my chest gets ever higher
as i sink away from that certainty
then someone introduce themselves to my life
an underground soul takes hold of my hand
grasping it firmly and smiling at me softly
and glides me safely away
no more do i think of that path
as i have closed myself from it
to think that a person has such an affect on me
is worth the waiting for
