A take on survivor's guilt

Self-Taken

by Fleedleflump



I heard your whisper on the air, tonight,
diaphanous abandonment,
vociferous belittlement,
perhaps a breath of beauty out of sight.
 
I turned my face to feel your soul in flight,
insanity defining me -
inanity’s eternal fee
for never understanding all your plight.
 
I was the raven, shadow of your wings,
innocuous deliverance,
irreverent indifference,
the last of choices left for you to sing.
 
A melody, farewell to worldly sins -
irrevocable threnody,
an imbecilic tragedy …
 
My seed, my loss, my hatred nursed within.

Inspired by the song 'Dead Boy's Poem' by Nightwish. See live performance below, if interested. Floor Jansen is also one of my favourite singers.





Lyrics from the song are:

I live no more to shame, nor me, nor you
I'm sorry

Born from silence, silence full of it
A perfect concert my best friend
So much to live for, so much to die for
If only my heart had a home

Sing what you can't say
Forget what you can't play
Hasten to drown into beautiful eyes
Walk within my poetry, this dying music
My love letter to nobody

Never sigh for better world
It's already composed, played and told
Every thought the music I write
Everything a wish for the night

Wrote for the eclipse, wrote for the virgin
Died for the beauty the one in the garden
Created a kingdom, reached for the wisdom
Failed in becoming a god

Never sigh for better world
It's already composed, played and told
Every thought the music I write
Everything a wish for the night

"If you read this line, remember not the hand that wrote it
Remember only the verse, songmaker's cry the one without tears
For I've given this its strength and it has become my only strength.
Comforting home, mother's lap, chance for immortality
Where being wanted became a thrill I never knew
The sweet piano writing down my life"

"Teach me passion for I fear it's gone
Show me love, hold the lorn
So much more I wanted to give to the ones who love me
I'm sorry
Time will tell (this bitter farewell)
I live no more to shame nor me nor you
And you... I wish I didn't feel for you anymore..."

A lonely soul
An ocean soul
A lonely soul
An ocean soul

"So much more I wanted to give to the ones who love me
Time will tell"

A lonely soul
An ocean soul
A lonely soul
An ocean soul
