A Poem


I am fighting for my life

while I'm losing my mind.

I need to find that one thing

that's going on to get me

out of this mess.

everywhere I'm going

I'm unknowingly bringing

something that's going to

kill everything that's good.

I don't know until I

pull that trigger.

I keep pulling it and

pulling and pulling, am I

out of my fucking mind?

I must be out of it

since I wouldn't be

acting like this if I wasn't.

I want to

I've got to

I need to take it.

I don't want to see this

reality so I stay in

a daydream.

I refuse to see all

of the issues that are

thrown in my face.

I don't want to fix

them, I don't see how

I can fix them.

I'm in denial and

I'm in a dreamland

don't shatter the glass

right in front of me.

it's all that's keeping me

from falling apart at the

very seams.
