The following is from a story I'm currently writing. It is a song written and performed by one of the characters. It's not totally polished, but I rather liked it and decided to post it. (It doesn't even have a name yet.)

This was originally posted October 24, 2006. I finally finished this story and called it The Best Medicine.




In the twilight of my days,
I walk in endless night.
Trapped among these memories,
All alone I fight.
I can’t find the light no more,
Your darkness clouds my ways.
You’re just another memory
That fades into the haze.

Then why should I stay here,
When I’m so all alone?
I’m leaving now - I’m leaving,
Can’t break a heart of stone.

So now in my misery,
I face the world alone.
Nothing seems to matter,
Can’t break a heart of stone.
The blood flows thickly from my veins,
but I can’t seem to care.
It’s flowing like a river,
and pooling round the chair.

Then why should I stay here,
When I’m so all alone?
I’m leaving now - I’m leaving,
Can’t break a heart of stone.

Did you ever love me?
I don’t believe it’s true.
I used to think I loved you, babe,
But God knows if I do.
As eagles cry unto the sun,
As wind cries to the sky,
So my heart pours out its pain,
This is my last goodbye.

Then why should I stay here,
When I’m so all alone?
I’m leaving now - I’m leaving,
Can’t break a heart of stone.
