"i'm holding on
why is everything so heavy?"- Chester Bennington
Gone, but never forgotten. You are missed.
Eryri Jan 2019
Chester draws big crowds on raceday.

Employees dress up for away-days,

And punters hope for a big pay-day.

But, come the end of the day,

After bad bets that were the last straw,

All the fancy garb is taken off,

And put back in the chest of drawers.

Get me out of here, man.
I've got the fear,
It's killing me inside.

I'm losing out, losing time
Totally lost, my thoughts are crimes.
I've lost my voice, I've lost my soul, I know it's my fault. I know.  

The problem you see, is that I'm too scared to leave, I'm stuck in this rut, this beautiful rut. Everything's so comfortable, I feel this house; with its four walls and a bed so divine.


When should okay ever be enough? Surely okay is enough.

It's not enough. It's not.
There's got to be more to life than this, a life so settled, so normal, so stiff.

Get me out of here,
I've got the fear,
It's killing me inside.

I'm losing out, losing time
Totally lost, my thoughts are crimes.
I've lost my voice, I've lost my soul, I know it's my fault. I know.
I wrote this during a very challenging time in my life.

Your lips say that you love
Your eyes say that you hate
It’s written upon your face
All the lies how they cut so deeply

Everything you say to me
takes me one step closer to the edge
I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy?

Sometimes solutions aren’t so simple
Sometimes goodbye is the only way
It’s so much easier to go
than face all this pain here all alone

Set the silence free
to wash away the worst of me
‘cause everything that you thought I would be
has fallen apart right in front of you

Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
We’re building it up, to break it back down
We’re building it up, to burn it down

Take everything from the inside
and throw it all away
Remember all the sadness and frustration
and let it go

So I let go watching you
turn your back like you always do
'Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see

I tried so hard and got so far
But in the end, it doesn’t even matter
We said it was forever but then it slipped away
Standing at the end of the final masquerade
A tribute to Chester Bennington from Linkin Park (finally I've found some free time to come up with this!)
It’s a mashup of lyrical lines from some of my favorite LP songs.
I grew up loving this band, and this man too.
His voice is gold, and it will live on forever.
RIP Chester.

A poet's job is to describe the indescribable
Today, I fail to be a poet
Of the strings on my heart,
One has snapped
Rest in peace, Chester
We should have heard your cries
Jan Harak Jul 2017
Another light went dark
so I am even more alone at night
they ended their suffering
will I end mine?

The body is a sickness
life is a disease
how long I have to suffer?
When will I be released?

Heart heavy like a stone
I wanna heal
I wanna feel
like I’m somewhere I belong
RIP Chester Charles Bennington

I drift in my own “end of summers night”
still dreamin’
still falllin’
   Dropping, stumbling, the house of German exchange professors
   Sequestered on speed *****
Welcome to Chester

I’m homeward bound, the train is taking me
To my home town, through the worm hole
Is it time travel? Or just a figment of my fantasy?
Still I run into the arms of my comfort zone
A change of plans? It was all too new
So I rested for the moment, turned back went to bed
If only there was a mattress, a bedside lamp
A carpet and a kitchen
So under furnished is my home, a plain cold hall with a large glass wall
My body feels draped in fleece pyjamas
It may not be where I sleep and where I dream
But in this house life is a dream, but by 5 oclock I have to leave
How could you wake me? Don’t you see me?
This house I built around this square under my feet?
I’m sitting on an armchair, mug in my hand
I could swear I felt my hand run over my cat
Or is it all in my head? I know I have a house somewhere
Is it here or is it there? I’m going home I think
But leaving home. I left my heart on that square where I stood
It forever beats in the cold hall with the glass wall
Maybe that’s why I’m always so delirious
When I see that face and hear that sound
It calls to me sometimes, I miss it sorely
Homeward bound yes again. The train tracks carry me to through the worm hole
Whether through space, time or emotion
I will land safely in my happy place
Where's your home from home?
