Best Poem of Lindsay Maasdorp

The Haunted

I sleep, I wake, just same.
Haunted.
Tears don't work.
Pain won't go.
Haunted.
Maybe its here to stay.
My bag of rocks.
Haunted.
No great purpose.
Just be my load.
Haunted.
To hold me back.
This heavy sack.
Haunted.
I wake today. Maybe time to pray.
Haunted.
This curse must go.
Hit lowest low.
Haunted.
Nightmare of my soul.
My mind. My heart
My entire being.
Haunted.
Haunted. Haunted. Haunted.
I am
The walking. The crawling. The waiting. The moving. The wailing.
The death defying.
I am
The Haunted.

I Care Myself To Rest

I cry myself to sleep wondering if caring is the only way to be me

If I really have to give it all to receive nothing at most and brokenness at least

I cry myself to sleep feeling the pain of a hand that grips my heart pressing from all sides

Squeezing, smothering

I cry myself to sleep

[Hata Bildir]
