  1. 4 A.M.

    I wish there were enough words to express,
    to finally plumb the depths of madness,
    and be done;
    To speak the demon’s name and have won
    For to name ones fears is half the battle
    yet still the war goes on
    Saddled with doubt and the past,
    wishing for hope that will not last
    Moments tarry and the days carry
    nothing but pain and shadows cast
    And the bleakest, darkest hours before dawn
    are the worst,
    not knowing which had come first;
    Losing hope for the coming day,
    or fearing it will come your way
    and only be the same…

    So, groggily, I return my head
    to erstwhile comforting pillow and bed
    praying the demons will let me be
    Yet words fail for what I’ve seen
    in this long night
    And strength fails me too
    I fall forever, not knowing what to do,
    but wanting to escape
    somehow
    some way…

    I feel like (actually I love) your avatar...

    It would be so less painful to fade away instead of feeling each sting of life steal more strenght each day :stretcher

    For too long, I’ve not been allowed enough living,
    but instead, far too much forced thinking -
    I used to keep peace with a lot of sh*t,
    I had a handle on all of it
    but I no longer have the capacity...
    I'm lost
    and can no longer see.
    Too much has been
    stolen from me...
