Dont Leave Me In The Dark

I always used to wonder
Why someone turns out the lights
And all of a sudden, fast beating
Erupts from inside, like a drum under your heart
You’re pasted on smile dims to a frown
You close your eyes, praying to just fall asleep
Why doesn’t anyone want to stay awake,
Alive when the world cries?

“Why won’t you answer me? ”
When I tell you I can feel a heavy
Weight hovering over me and
I can’t shift my mind to anything other
Than trains gliding harshly across my body
Sharp rocks stabbing
Guns shooting
I swear I hear you say I’m misunderstood-

Why is it that you
Can’t feel the moons blood dripping on your pillow?
Why can’t you see the tears burning through?
Acid in my eyes, I feel like I can’t see myself in the light
I don’t want to stay in the dark, it’s too dull

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
