Tonight's The Night

Tonight’s the night,
I said in my head,
I don’t care anymore,
I wish I was dead.

Tonight’s the night,
I thought deep inside,
I haven’t the energy,
To keep trying to hide.

Tonight’s the night,
I said out loud,
So I took the pills;
Not feeling proud.

Tonight’s the night,
I thought for sure,
This pain won’t end,
There is no cure.

Tonight’s the night,
Or so I thought,
I hadn’t taken enough pills;
I was soon taught.

Tonight’s not the night,
I thought as I was sick,
I’ve achieved nothing,
I feel like a prick.

Tonight’s not the night,
I told my friend,
I can’t stand this nightmare,
Will it ever end?

Tonight’s not the night,
My friend said to me,
He’s over the moon,
But I just want to be free.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
