Not Enough Sleep Lately


It's raining pain

How could of I have been too late

To sharpen my wits and get it straight?

The creepy, pounding indigestion

__of feelings

Now leave me in this cold, depleted

__heart's morning

Where rays of light

__shine on the terror that is my surroundings

If I could be held accountable

__for anything

Could my mind bear the grief

__that I am forced to carry?

I think with bubbles of lightning

I hung deeply

More and more and more and more tension

No sight of release

Anywhere near me

The grouping overness

Of every love once had

Now is a struggle to keep

Jane is gone

Kelly is Gone

Melissa, gone


And Sally, such a loss so terrible

That life could never be great

Many towers cross thru in shadows

The likelihood that everything stood upon

Shatters now into infinite pieces

Uncountable are all the glossy minions of things

__that will bother me in the most

____utterly hopeful way

I ly breathless in my plan to escape

Nothing but emptiness

__now clouds my brain

Was it always my fault?

Do I take the blame to the grave?

I die in despair, with no sense

Of knowledge
