A Happy birthday For you my friend Doth my heart dearly wish.
As the old year passes away For the freshness of the new So to may all of your troubles May you find them scattered beneath you As the leaves of fall lay trodden
May this day be granted to you For your heart’s desire May it be crafted of bliss A pinnacle beyond zenith May it be a rebirth Of all that is good to you May it warm your heart As the fires of autumn
May this day pass into memory To be visited often Ever sweet and merry May it be wrought of euphoria Sourced from celebration and remembrance Of all that you are and have grown into.
May this day be good To you my friend May this day be your birthday May I wish you a happy birthday
For my dear friend Ty. If ever you find this, may you know the fondness which I bore for you in my heart. Know that you eased my mind in troubled times. My best wishes for your life if you are reading this.
At times like this what you need is to cry Not a little cry A tear gracing your cheek But an **** cry A downpour to lose yourself in Those droplets hitting the floor As you feel the holes in your heart The cracks in your soul
The last bit of your happiness You hold in your hands With no concern left in the world The weakness of it pleading to you Through empty space, voice unheard
You dream there, From the bottom of the world Of distant places Of different people That you could be That you can be That you were
An escape is all you ask Of those people Of those places But this place is all your own Crafted by your own two hands
The doctors advise seeing an adviser. The advisers advise asking a pill. A pill advises a short respite.
So, you swallow as the emptiness fills you. Not the sun of that first spring day, or the last embrace of an old friend or the departure of your last humanity stir anything inside. You are hollow now, no heaven and no ****.
Surely this is better, they say, You look through them hearing nothing, You stare past days and nights into the stillness left by a pill, and then you grasp what a pill advises.
