Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The Call
 
Written on 12/8/14 about my best friend Jason who had Pancreatic Cancer in 2012.. he called me to say his goodbyes as the doctor had given him mere days left to live. Aside from calling me, he called many others who wouldnít answer his call. Luckily he survived, but mentally he never healed. He served in the U.S. Army for 8 years and struggled with PTSD and Depression. On 6/29/19, Jason took his life. He may be gone, but he will forever be in my heart.


The Call

When the time is up, nothing really matters.
From the moment I wake up, nobody really cares.
Iím calling from my death bed but youíre silencing that call again.
I called because I cared.
And Iím scared, because the end is near.
I need you now. When will you care?
Iím not prepared.

And weíre calling. Weíre calling for you now.
No landlines, weíre screaming, weíre dreaming.
The nightmares on Elm Street spread across the town.
The timeís been up. The journeyís over now.

And now you canít hear what Iím saying because my fears drown out the tears.
And Iím lost within myself, just like Iíve been for many years.
Nothingís changed, nothing stays the same.
So, we run; no point in facing fears.

They ask you, why are you crying?
Soon you will be flying.
But when youíre cold, beneath the ground, your bones cry out for another round.
But I know youíd do it just the same.
No, you wouldnít change a thing.

Howling at the moon, my hunger soothes the shame.
I canít claim the fame, delete the frame.
I know me, and in my mind Iíll forever be.
Eternity is just a dream.
A fallacy we strive to see.

Weíre waiting for an afterlife.
We need something real to believe in.
