[Michael Ash Sharbaugh and Deadlights]



I’m swingin’ in the trees
hanging here like a bunch of leaves

day and night e’er interweave


I flow into the trees
ran a knife just under my sleeve
I flow into the trees
may my blood colour next Fall’s leaves

so silent throughout the trees
I’ll enjoy the peace of my final eve
so quiet among the trees
as I meet eternity
