Nevermind: A Kurt Cobain Tribute

A midnight cry vacates the solace day, 
For the poignant loss of a unlikely hero, 
All the joy we once had has faded away, 
As the gauge to our lively hoods wilt to zero, 

Once alive upon shortly dead, 
Drowning in this pit of sorrow, 
Hold all means to die but instead, 
We wait for the greetings of tomorrow, 

Doused in pain and lost the key, 
As a thousand tears drop the floor, 
And they play the world's sweetest harmony, 
As our sadness alters the ocean shore, 

It's over yet we hear the everlasting cry, 
A pail look upon a face profound in despair, 
Just why is it they all have the die, 
Can still here the music flowing in the air, 

Only today do we grieve to smile, 
And the sun has no will to shine, 
Now left with thoughts on our impure denial, 
It's hard to find a will, o well, whatever, never mind,

I wrote this on April the 5th, for those that don't know that is the day of the year that Kurt Cobain died. Of course it was many many years before I wrote this. The radio was playing nothing but Nirvana in tribute, therefore I decided to write a poem about how he touched the lives of so many people.
