Awake Again

Poetry-awake-again-973x1024

Awake again, wish I could sleep.

Can’t seem to shake the feeling

that I’m really just a creep…

 

I’ve come to the conclusion

that my mind is slowly peeling

so that I’m left with this delusion…

 

That nothing I do really matters

I’ve lost all reason for being

My life seems left in tatters…

 

Yet still I search for some shred of hope,

some secret way of seeing,

to help me find some way to cope…

 

With these fucking voices in my head

that have me seriously thinking

that I would be better off fucking dead…

 

Yet still I lie awake and ponder

what the hell has got me linking

my life to this shitty path I wander…

 

And so I bid you all goodnight

as I’ve started slowly sinking

into the blissful oblivion of my inner light…

 

I’m sure life will seem brighter on the morrow

so that we’re all left blinking

for every parting holds such sweet sorrow…
