The Life In You
Branson Storm

Theyíre all around me.
Iím surrounded, dying in people,
thinking only of why Iím here.

Words and words, but I hear thoughts
firing like stars
and they always fade Ė
always.

Beyond it all is a sky of you
spun in your thread, catching my everything,
making me stay.
And my anger is just enough to question myself.

Iím not going. I canít.

Why wonít you release me?
Youíre too big for me and
I donít like who your silence has become.

And your humanity,
itís no good.
Itís still and dry Ė
days from death.

Donít kill it.
Give it to me.
Let me be
the life in you again.
