going to the graveyard

go to the graveyard quote by steven james humphreys

riding on a cloud

God knocked this

chip off my shoulder

cause’ I felt way proud

falling down fast

going to the graveyard

reading mailbox letters

written by dead friends past

basking in the sun

on an arid desert plot

wearing a skeleton

mask drinking

straight whiskey

from the bottle I bought

wondering when rain will fall

once and for all

breaking this Godawful drought

my heart’s so burdened

with thoughts of dying

wrapped in formless doubts

makes me feel so alone

I hear echoes tout

off nearby mountain tops

for, no man is listening

way out in the boonies

as I scream and shout

I have sweltered long

and hard here in this

dry lonesome valley

in pools of my own

fears, sweat and tears.
