    A never ending book of endless pages
    Of dreams that are left rotting in the sun
    In life we are meant to live seven stages
    But i do not remember living one
    A list of failed romances in red ink
    Though failure does not exist in heartache
    But all those loves that never left the brink
    The friendships i was not strong enough to make
    The writing of the pain will last forever
    Each cut and blow is starkly underlined
    The link in mind and sanity is severed
    Each scar and bruise thats shown is of course signed
    With the name that each regret is linked to
    An annal of my paranoia's power
    A register of every link gone askew
    And memories my darkest mind devours
    This chronicle of fights where i have faltered
    Seductive crawling of fear that's my lover
    Close the book, its text to be unaltered
    "My Birth, My Life, My Death" upon the cover

    Intense, evocative, strong images! The concept of a book and turning pages works very well and you tie it all together in your last line. Well done!
