Wendy Bird

I felt it the instant you were gone,

A hole in my heart,

Am I brought to ashes,

A corpse I was already,

Now death remains.

Angry, because you didn't even say good bye.

All of my schemes,

As I scream for control,

Yet powerlessness remains.

So be it.

If this is the only way.

Star crossed lovers were never meant to be.

You must have your reasons,

Though they will plague me.

Even twenty years later.

A martyr though I try to change.


A huge chunk of my life gone.


Yet, I had no say in the matter.

Ramblings, Ravings.

It does not matter.

Life goes on no matter how I feel.

You know what they say about a bird you love.

So I guess I have no choice.

Season's End

Sorrow just wells from my heart

Pain so deep I don't even know where to start

Tears just roll from my eyes

20 years older, they say I should be wise

But me, I'm just a fool

A fool in love, tortured as a soul

So many people around me

But no one even knows me

A sole survivor, single and lonely

Pain and frustration, wallow in pity

The breeze of night its comforting

And my lover in distress also suffering

"Someday you might be feeling

That life has past you by,

Your spirits might be sinking

With hope in short supply."

Tears run down my face

Nothing has changed

Drugs, sex and alcohol

Have only damaged the brain

Tonight's my last night

Will you miss me when I'm gone?

I wish there was a happy ending

To this stupid, sad song.
