ON THE EDGE OF TIME

I’ve gotten to the edge of time

To the point where it all ends

Here, where alone with myself I chatter

Where time is the only comfort and brother

Acquainted with solitude 

Denounced by gay companies

Here I am on the edge of time

 

So before life itself stops leading this conspiracy against meitself stops leading this conspiracy against me

To trade the harm, dishonour and guilts

The dreadful plights, flights and shame

That throughout all seasons

Without tangible reasons

Gullible men out of the conscious and purposeful malice

Throw at me in my guiltless face

 

Here on the edge of time

I lay buried by my side

All hopes and faith of the better life.
