I suppose for this to have the effect I'd like, it needs music, but anyways cast your eyes over these alone, and sympathise in their quest for a cradle...

Restless in recent stagnation,
Reactionary seizures,
Heavy doors won't open,
They deny retinal pleasures.

Gasping for a quickened pulse,
Architects of deafness,
The patients have all gone home,
Here I lie in surplus.

Spoken telephone interlude
!Hello, which service do you require?"

The smell of burning martyr,
Might be your incense,
Set eyes on a girl in the water,
And drain away its depths.

The scene of emotional crash,
Never too much to take,
When a bridge disguised as a gap,
Is all I'm left to face.

- - - -

Nauseous in a crowded room,
Apathy can poison,
Infections in life's open wounds,
Green without a reason.

Telephone interlude
"Okay, stay calm! What's the address ? "

Repeat Chorus

Very good. The music would help this song alot, but it is strong with just the lyrics. You set the mood and scene well without totally giving everything away. Good work.

I'm getting the feeling, that it's a baby, cradled in a crib, and a fire I'm guessing burns the house down, and because of it's infant incapabilitys, it's unable to escape, thus you have the feeling of distress and anger..

that's what I'm getting from it. It's so brilliantly done. Amazing work.

OMG! this is amazing bexi! the image you give thru all of the poem/song is brilliant just...awesome. i don't know if you already have music but i read this like an interlude song...a 'spoken word' song..w/ some background music..but giving the voice the chance to cause more impact than the music itself. idk...just me rambling..great stuff! 9.5/10..:thumb: keep 'em coming

Same ol' same ol', except I think it's worse since you seem on the verge of something good but you're just not there. Your rhyme scheme also leaves much to be desired.

Also, the telephone crap is gimmicky.
