the blind boy's bird girl
the saddest girl in the world,
she turned into a paper bird.
she flew away and in turn,
she flew into the sun to burn.
as her ashes fluttered down,
they came to rest across the town.
the blind boy cried when her feathers flared,
and ventured where nobody dared.
he crossed the city to the yard
where dead were strewn and then he called
"bird girl, bird girl, why'd you go?
now all's left is street and snow.
you left me here, all alone,
feels like i'm stripped of blood and bone.
my heart is crushed and my cheeks are wet,
we haven't been together yet.
you had to go and burn to death,
instead of doing coke or meth,
you flew yourself into the sun
and now the damage has been done."
the blind boy climbed into the sky,
whispering his final, sad goodbye.
he leaped from the tallest building he could find,
the resulting impact was not kind.
his bones all broke, his skull was smashed,
the townspeople thought that he was trashed.
but really he couldn't bear his life,
all his troubles, all his strife.
