Remember The Glory by J.J. Campbell

the reckless
abandon of
my teenage
years left me
a few lifetimes
ago

i can close
my eyes and
remember
the glory

but i look at
these scars,
the layers of
pain on these
broken legs

this lifeless
soul feels
trapped and
only knows
one way out

time to write
a note and find
the proper place
for a noose

do i want to
be remembered
or is it more
my style to be
brushed aside

like the common
trash of a city
street

J.J. Campbell
J.J. Campbell (1976 – ?) has given up the farm life and is now trapped in suburbia. He’s been widely published over the years, most recently at Dead Snakes, Easy Street, The Stray Branch, Pyrokinection and Horror Sleaze Trash. You can find him most days bitching about only the things he cares about on his highly entertaining blog, evil delights. (http://evildelights.blogspot.com)
