Here lies someone
Who struggled to thrive
To create and survive
But got swallowed up whole

Many late nights
Shattered dreams and decisions
Spent restlessly fighting the tide
Seeking new flavors to savor not bitter
Sweet fresh and tasting of spice

Longing for the newness of life
And precious connection of love

Some have it easy and some fight the storm
Not tasting grapes on the recline
Or in the dark corner of forgotten one-hit wonders
Porcelain angels dues paid

Longing for the newness of life
And precious connection of love
Don't ask for so much greedy soul
Life can't always make you feel whole
