Random Poem:

Fatal Lament

The whole World is out to get me.
I sacrifice for the good of them
For when I leave, they will rejoice in my lament
My pained words shall bring them pleasure
they will mock me, and I will submit my soul
I will look to the sky, close my eyes, and wait
Until the rain comes pouring down.
and the worms decompose my mortal consciousness
How long have I waited!
Too long, I am prepared to free myself
from the confines of my existence
