Trying to Keep Awake

7 hours ago 1 minute read 0 comments emily2u

The day seems longMy eyes are shutting,Trying to stay awakeTemples I keep rubbing.The smell of medicated oilClears my blocked nose,As it hits my nostrilsMy mind jumbled with prose.It's time for bedMy body is saying,Yet with so much to doThis signal I...

Noise In My Head

As the day wears on And more coffee can't wake me, Throbbing in my temple .... Intensifies The noise in my head Gets louder, stronger, Telling me of the wrongs I may have committed. Can't help but wonder Who has the answer To all my questions That ar...

The burden on my shoulders Gets heavier and heavier; And as I walk this path Life becomes messier.     Who do I turn to What can I say? This weight I'm carrying  Is there any leeway?     Stop! This is getting crazy Can't you see where it's going? Loo...

Seasons come and goAs do friends and enemies;Letting go isn't always easy When mind is filled with memories. Words have been spokenAnd actions were taken;Come the final goodbyeAnd you think it's mistaken. But there is no turning back On this one-way...

Is It Time To Quit?

As the sun starts to set And the day turns dark; You wonder, you really do If you have made a mark.   When the smiles turn to frowns And the tears start to roll; You wonder, you really do Is anything within your control?   As the slope gets more slip...

There Goes The Looney

As age creeps up on me,Hair turns grey, skin wrinkly,How will my end game be?Still enjoying tea or sickly? One by one brain cells die,Memories escape my mind;For the youth lost I cryTreatment toward me unkind. How fleeting our life is Years pass just...

Bruised to the Core

The sound of pelting rainPierces my subconscious mind;I shift my body a little in bedIn my heart, protested and whined. What time is it, I wonder?Whatever it is, I want to sleep;I'm tired to the boneOver me, emotions sweep. Monday Blues people sayFor...
