Fade to Black

Knock knock, it’s the boogie man;
He’s coming after me.
I’ll grab my coat,
And write a note,
“At last, at last I’m free”.

Dead dreams, nothing seems
To matter anymore.
Fade to black;
Don’t look back.
No need to lock the door.

Short and not so sweet. A low point in my life.
Written in 2001; a very personal piece I am only now able to share.

Thank you. I am probably typical; I do my best stuff when everything around me is falling to ashes.

Thanks Asli. My poetry is very personal but I love knowing that it has been read by someone.

Thanks so much!
