A Life Of Promise  

A baby boy enters the world
A mom and daddy's pride and joy
They raise him up to knows whats right
To try and keep him in the light
The dark and heavy weighed him down
He can not seem to lose his frown
The pain became too much to bear
Now the darkness is his lair
Brooding, hiding in the shadows
Wanting solace, finding none
He takes the short cut to the end
And now his pain is finally done

Was pointing out that tales was misspelled and then misspelled despair because I felt like it.

How do you figure it's misspelled? You're a tad dense, aren't you?

Oberon - Spike Milligan

The flowers in my garden
grow down
Their colour is pain
Their fragrance sorrow.
Into my eyes grow their roots
feeling for tears
To nourish the black
hopeless rose
within me.

Nervous breakdown
Bournemouth
February 1967

Manic Depression - Spike Milligan

The pain is too much
A thousand grim winters
grow in my head
In my ears
the sound of the
coming dead.
All seasons
All sane
All living
All pain.
No opiate to lock still
my senses
Only left,
the body locked tenses.

St. Luke's Hospital
Psychiatric Wing
1953/4

Spike Milligan
St. Luke's Hospital
Psychiatric Wing
1953/4

Due to being Shell-Shocked during WWII, Spike Milligan suffered severe bouts of depression (hence above address), despite this the man was a comic genius fronting several seasons of comedy sketch television shows in the late 70's early 80's.

One of my faves.

The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner
by Randall Jarrell

From my mother's sleep I fell into the State,
And I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze.
Six miles from earth, loosed from the dream of life,
I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters.
When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.

The ice
It cracks like a whip under his feet
The ice
A chasm splits it down the middle
The ice
Makes a sickening creak like death
The ice
Snaps and he tumbles underneath
The ice
Breaks and there's nothing I can do
The ice
Keeps him under and I try to grab him but
The ice
Blocks my way; blocks my hand and
The ice
Is ultimately the barrier
Between life and death.

Dunno where this came from.
Probably has something to do with Christopher Walken swinging a cane madly into a vase and yelling something about ice... wink.gif
