Pain to the hum of crickets;
A Disney movie fills the room as
A silent wanting goes unfilled.
Deep darkness, yet every
Light a star. Shining faint
Annoyance and discomfort
Upon weary flesh.
Dirty dishes float about; filthy lives in
Dingy pockets. A longing a need;
A muttering of words under breath,
Embarrassing breaks in thought.
Drifting from reality to reality,
Comfort for the soul, wasted
By the mind. Wasted,
It wanders and rhymes until
It is far too late.
No sanctuary, no place or mountain
In which to hide. The truth is
Grim and the noise an afterthought.
Cursed to see the old,
Reliving pain anew.
In the heart, the battle is lost
And the tears roll down
In quiet streams.
FrustrationUnfocused and twitchy,
I feel like I'm being torn apart
I want to cry, but I can't seem to.
In a while I will be overwhelmed,
And when it comes
Here or there, I will eat breakfast or take a shower,
Maybe try to sleep it off.
On the wall hangs my motto,
"Just do it" written in marker.
Rarely does it inspire.
Frustration makes me sad,
An inescapable truth to reality.
I just wish things were different,
Maybe a world with no problems,
No pressure or obligations.
Even then I bet I would be crushed
By the weight of idleness. I can't seem to
Climb out of this problem. Nothing to do
But hope that things will change. Although
I know what must be changed.
