There were railroads
Etched deep
Across the span
Of her porcelain flesh

Each mile
Was a shrill cry
Released from the caverns
Buried within

She hung close
Like a high noon shadow
Clutched to any form
With a harrowing thirst

Still her words burn
With urgency
As a roving echoe
At the close 
Of each passing day

To have been 
Fully conscious
At her prime

To have seen
The billowing
Steam of havoc

What might have been
Is my sure
And slow demise
With shallow breaths
I hang on

From the mangled edges
Of my failing

Ever slightly
For the tranquil fall
Of eternity

I linger
In the surging waves
No longer striving
For solid ground

I rupture
Swallowing the night
And it's murderous
Brew of silence
The high noon crumbled
To a peaceful
Droning simmer

Where I faltered
Into the fury
Of teenage angst

Where I backstroked
Through the humid haze
Of the quietest
Corner of home

When the school day
Had fully dissolved
And hunger
Had slithered deep within

Misery far ago
Was the passing
Fog of dawn

How I yearn to graze
That fleeting grief
From midnight's
Sorrowful grasp
My engine sputters
Through the thick sludge
Of tireless voices

I sink to my knees
Weary and overcome
Fully immersed
In the fog of daily labor

Onward I cry
As I wade
And inch toward silence

Yet dying screams
Are all I can conjure
As food for the muck
The foe of my eager treads

High noon
Pries away
My rusted and mangled form

Hoisting me high
Away from the clutches
Of havoc and pillaging disarray

The spawn
Of lumbering voices
Who yearn
To render me hollow
A melody steamrolls
Across a mind
Marred by ruin

It's infectious
It floods
From grey matter
To the depths of marrow

Misery is dissolved
With ease
Like capsizing in a swell
Of harmonic majesty

Piercing deep
I thrive fulfilled
Far from the sands
And their cruel
Scalding torment

Beyond silence I'd linger
In this boundless refrain
The eternal cry
That dwells
In the hulls of roving thoughts
My laptop will not boot up. I keep getting a screen that says: configuring updates stage 3 of 3. Its loads for two minutes and then the computer restarts. Can someone help me? Ive tried everything short of setting the damn thing on fire!  I might have to use my tablet to post new poems, which would be really frustrating.
