Working the Wall



When the truth becomes a burden to the life outside your head


The whirl of lies that follows pulls the corners in


In twisted acts of knowing your life begins to curl


As the edges blur beyond you and you start to work the wall


At first it seems the answer, not the first, never the last


Its solid strength a bolster to the sogginess of dawn


Light turns down to darkness and reality must stay


Its stark skeletal boldness clutches at the escaper of the wall

Stony thorns of conscience pricking out your mind


Solid forms of actions. once forgotten now alive


Stumble and you'll bleed like the life you left behind


Space nor time have the advantage - total overload


You've given yourself over to the wall

 


Nothing wants to listen no witness left to view


The uncherished vanished silently, no ceremony sounds


The roar of emptiness echoes in the hollow of regret


The double edged sword of deception pierces the slayer


Who's left to work the wall



Lyn McLeod 1998. Based on a reading / slide presentation first presented at E.A.S.E. at Revolver.
