More often than we care to admit
We get carried away with the day’s demands.
We feel the need that we need to busy ourselves
With tasks that don’t always need our attention.
Yet it seems that this way of life is addicting
Since we follow this pattern day in and day out.
So I want you to take this moment
To just breathe.
The stars twinkle and shine in the calm night sky
Not a cloud is in sight, not a sound can be heard.
I lay peacefully under this calm night sky
Basking in the serenity that I am rarely afforded.
For it is hard to find peace in a place like this
When you are buried six feet under the ground.
Family and friends are all gathered near
Laughter and love emanate from here
This wonderful time of the year
From both love and sorrow we shed a tear
There is nothing that is quite like this
No other time that we all miss
The presents and food and family bliss
Under the mistletoe with the Christmas kiss
She catches his eye
Through the window.
The eyes meet.
Creeps onto her face.
He walks forward
And she walks by.
To face her.
To face him.
He reaches out
To grab hold
And the train
I write and I write
But I never seem to get
To where I want to go
And where I should be
I’m sinking in the sand
I’m falling off the cliff
When will this nightmare be done
I don’t know how much
More I can take
But one revelation
That I’ve gleamed from this
Is where my devastation comes from
Because my favorite feeling is numb
I wander down the sidewalks
Unsure of where it leads me
These roads that are so foreign
The end I cannot see
But onward I will tread
With reckless abandon I go
For the end of the journey
Is something I must know
Laying on the ground with a bottle in my hand
Trying my best to drink the pain away
The demons don’t seem to want to leave
So I’m counting down to the end of the day
I’m slipping away
