questions

i did it. i gave in. again. i do it every time.

why can’t i stop? why can’t i help myself? why can’t i be free?

how do i escape? how do i see the light? how can i make it through?

i did it. i gave in. again. i do it every damn time.

hibernation

11:10 AM

the world sleeps where i live.

i gazed at her, sleeping sound,

curious if she dreams.

the world sleeps where i live.

no one comes to greet the night,

ignoring her instead.

the world sleeps where i live.

the stillness is too daunting,

the silence gives no peace.

the world sleeps where i live.

i want a world that’s awake,

one filled with life and colors.

the world sleeps where i live.

i’m consumed by the darkness

as i wish for morning.

“wake up world,” i cry,

“live with me.”
