Live Again 

I want to live again
I want to have ice cream at my grandmas house
Playing with my cousin with dolls and their blouses
Going outside to my dog and visiting the old garage 
It was not perfect, but it was a full on collage

I want to be at my middle school again 
Even with the bullies at the end of it, it still had a gain
Of friends I would run and giggle with 
That would disappear by eighth grade in the memory bin

I want to be five again
Where my worries were which movie will I get today  and if I could visit the toy shop
Being careless and healthy
Not knowing of world’s cruelty
Where my brain hasn’t rotten

And sit in my kiddie chair and do nothing 
Watching cartoons and dreaming of adventure 
Not where I am watching blankly at the doctor talk for a century
Telling me that I was a sad character in this show
I want to pop sweets in my mouth and not pills that will only slow
I want to fall asleep and dream again
Where now I dream of nothing and wake up with pain
Wanting to sleep forever 

I want to live again.
