Murphy’s Razor

Mark A. Murphy



My blood stains the page,

my commas cry philosophical tears,

my cuts bleed unto you.


Where will it end?

We are not entirely sure,

only this is clear…


for now we are apart,

drifting endlessly

into unfathomable dreams.


When the end comes, bloodlessly

or otherwise,

I want you beside me.


And into eternity we will Fall. Fail. Fly.
