Sitting alone in my house with only my pen for company, writing whatever came into my head.

It's 3:30 am and I still cant sleep,

and my ribs are bruised from coughing,

and I'm worn out,

and I just have nothing left.

.....................................

My sister scares me,

and my housemates depress me.

My friends cant help me,

and my family can't care.

......................................

Coz they don't understand even tho they try,

and they're worn out from trying,

and they have nothing left.

.......................................

And the music plays on and on,

and the minutes pass by,

and all I do is sit here and stare,

withought really knowing why.

........................................

And the house is empty,

and lonely,

and cold,

but I have no where else to go...

.........................................

So I'll listen to the music,

and cry myself to sleep,

and if not for this letter you'd be none the wiser,

but for the tear stains on my cheek.

..........................................

And once again I look to others for guidence,

like a fool.

For it's only as they go along,

that they make up the rules.

..........................................

So I follow blindly,

whille I'm led by the deaf.

And I scream till I'm hoarse,

and there's pain in my chest.

And there's pain in my heart,

and there's pain in my head.

Perhaps I need to choose more wisely,

the people by whome I'm lead.

............................................

I wish to be a leader,

but lack the confidence, motivation and will.

If it's only myself I lead to my death,

it's only myself I kill.

..........................................

So I write to myself,

for the deaf and incapable of listening.

And I cry to myself,

and me sad, cold eyes are glistening.
