    i did this with a friend of mines from another site....hes from england

    he wrote every other line starting with the first...

    I bury my head in my hands, with tears running down
    fingers which
    linger
    long after im gone, the spirit of song, my mind in the
    midst of here
    and
    there, neither either, but who cares?

    I’m scared
    Didn’t want to admit it but never been so aware that
    “He’s” there
    Stripped bare
    Body lined with depression plastered in by the cold
    stares

    Fists tight together,
    clenched in my hands these scattered letters,
    my idol time is spent cold in sweaters,
    pulling the wool over my eyes;
    Hate being a useful evil for the devil's easel.

    no point of reading, long ago memorized each line
    slowly tilt my head to the sky
    mouth foaming
    blasphemous words erupt from my spine
    this and my faith combine
    revealing secrets buried deep within
    the graveyards of my mind


    Countless tablets,
    the bones tired in masses,
    i fear being buried alive,
    at the same time i dread ashes.
    trying to gather and follow rules, keep my saintliness
    wanting to make a difference, when its easier to be the rest.

    they say I’m blessed
    blind to the lacerations embedded deep within my chest
    saintly......nah
    average at best
    i sold my soul for this love but so many do
    for so much less
    I’ve held it in for so long but now i must confess
    sick of chasing away my sorrow with chilled
    bottles of henny and Newport cigarettes so i
    bottle up my hate and let it float away with regret
