when the clock strikes twelve


how can life
whats in the life of death
my life is fallin
cant sleep
i fallin to death
my love crys inside
how can it be
now i'm fallin from
the kingdom of death
whats next i'm laying here
the clocks at 8: 00 p.m
is it time to fall for good
i'll never know
tell it strikes twelve
i'm bleeding inside
whats here is now
i want my life to fall far below
but i'm scared to say
that i want life gone
now the clock is 9: 00 p.m
three more hours to decide whats right
now it gettin closer to say
i'm fallin to parts
like the life i had
now can my life be death at rest
please i dont know
here i sit
prayin for the truth
now the clock hits 10: 00 p.m
two more hours for me to choose
should life endor should it stay
i stair out the window tilted in gray
now its poorin like life its self
can life be gone
here right no the clock strikes 11: 00 p.m
one more hour to choose my way
can i choose in least than an hour
or will i die
right here right now
please dear god choose my way
now its 11: 49
here i sit thinkin to choose
now its 12: 00 p.m
heres my choice life is my world
not thelost of my life
so i'm stayin alive
good to here
now good night to all my peers

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
