  1.     

Sleep

Sleep, sleep,
Come my way.
Let me sleep,
So I can start a new day.

Sleep, sleep,
I take my pill.
My mind won't sleep,
Too active with chills.

Sleep, sleep,
Show me how.
What's that, sleep,
How now brown cow?

Sleep, sleep,
My brain is delirious.
Stop playing tricks, sleep,
You're making me furious.

Stone Wall

I lost my grasp
On all that I restricted.
Misplacing control over my thoughts and feelings,
Now everyone knows too much.

The stone wall that protects me,
It cracked one day.
I tried to patch the flaw,
But my world got easier to manipulate.

I feel shameful,
Letting the gaps in my wall get bigger,
Opening my entrails
For the world to set their eyes on.

'The less you say, the less you feel,
The less you show to others,
Less the chance to be hurt.'
That was always the motto.

Now I take inventory,
Of all the emotions I let out.
Gather them one by one,
Take back all that everyone knows.

Grabbing more stone and mortar
I place emotions back where they belong,
Restoring the wall that had shattered,
A creation impossible to destroy.

Am I Being Mean?

Hey bitch, this poem is for you.
What's that, you itch?
Gee, I haven't a clue.
Maybe you're allergic to my man's glue.

Hi there whore, how are you these days?
Not too good, well that's too bad.
Could it possibly be your plan
To travel from man to man?

Hello slut, oh sorry, I meant friend.
What do you mean you got nipped in the bud?
I'm guessing here, it's only a hunch,
Was it when I punched you in the gut?

Coma

The coma came and I wanted to shout,
I want out and then they came,
The dreams of death that made me feel ashamed.

Ashamed that I had to make the decision,
Who should live, who should die,
Just as long as it was not I.

The battle plagued on for days and days,
From murder, suicide, disaster, disease,
It always had to end in a casualty.

Mother or father,
It had to be one.
Sister or brother,
How could I choose who should have won?

People I didn't even know,
Shot themselves with a gun,
Their blood strewn in the snow.

Water that drowned,
Fires that desiccated,
Earthquakes that desecrated.

Bodies in which cancer was riddled,
The man who went on a murder rampage,
The plane that crashes that leaves families in dismay.

It alarms me and sometimes makes me cry,
I had a part in these people's fate even though untrue,
In order for myself to stay alive,
I had to decide who should live and who should die.
