Joyce Rugg

Empty eulogy

Life is a funeral
With a flat-tired hearse
I am just another corpse,
Forced to walk in blistering sun

Stumbling towards a grave,
A service for no one
Yet when dirt falls,
The unholy churchyard is full

They smile, laughing
As they bury the damned
Not even bothering
To close the coffin lid

Above me, the bright sky
Slips farther away
As dirt clouds my eyes
Buried deeper all the time

My Hell

Kill me, you know you want to
You know you’d love to watch me die
You aren’t happy til I suffer
So go ahead and make your day

The feel of the flames,

This must be your heaven
I know it’s my hell

You think you’ve trapped me
You think I’m broken
I am not lost yet
In this living nightmare

The feel of the flames
A rain of ashes
This must be your heaven
I know it’s my hell

Heavenly Hades

Jaded eyes grown tired of seeing
Battered body weary with being
Bleeding ears sick of the screams
Tortured mind, nothing’s what it seems

Searching hands, black with ashes
Nothing left, I grab the matches
Destroy everything to see the light
Pretend it’s normal, but nothing’s right

Convince myself destruction’s the key,
A beginning in ending all I see
Watch as the dust flies away
I’m left alone, it’s best that way

Nothing to ruin, nothing to lose
No need to read their cryptic clues
Sick of a constant struggle to do right
I give up on this impossible fight
