A dirt nap sounds so good to me. Restful and sweet eternity. Down with the bugs and all my friends. Tree root in the back of my head. No worries now I’ve met my match. Sew my mouth and close the hatch. Two coins placed one for each eye. Pay Charon for the long boat ride. You will never know how much I need it. Gone through all this now I must repeat it. Time to relax settle down for a long dirt nap. Sell my junk take all the bread. Sweetheart I’m never coming home again. Take all the time that you need. I’ll be pushing daisies up through the weeds. Sunshine’s gone it can’t reach me. Save those rays and the water for the seed. Honey I’m just repaying my debt. We never know how much time we get. You will never know how much I craved it. Gone through all this now I must savor it. Time to relax settle down for a long dirt nap. Goodbye to you my love. Goodbye to forever young. Goodbye to the deep blue sky. Whispered words and lulabys. A little life in everything. Even in the pain that it brings. Sharper than a razors edge. Straight through the tears that you wept. But colder than a heart of stone. Is a dirt nap all alone. I’d rather go in a blaze of fire. Ashes to the dirt like a child.
