Evasion - Poem by Sara Kerr

the sleep slips through my eyes
as tears drip down my face
overwhelming emotion
my life such a disgrace

every hope that I have
somehow gets crushed
every time you heart beats
my cheeks just get flushed

its useless to feel
yet somehow neccesary
its pointless to heel
yet somehow conclusionary

I am staying inside
I am staying away
I just can't cry anymore
no not today
