Here We Go Again - Poem by Nicole D'Settemi

Angels & Demons
Mania & Depression
Feeling afflicted!
Tragic, soulless expression
Life is too long-
No, wait, it's too short
Why am I here?
What am I here for? !
Who the hell knows,
Does anybody even care?
Sick of this world!
Sick of these fears!
It's a gross little place,
Where we have no faith and no hope
And, even with those
Existence is a fucking joke!
The pain may subdue
But it also returns
And I'm lost with no clue
As my heart shatters
And burns
Evil prevails
Nearly every minute of the day
No matter the light
You can't pave a dark-less way
And, I'm SICK of this shit
I'm sick of merely trying
I want some answers!
I refuse more crying
It's not worth my soul
And, won't get my wet tears
So why even bother?
Who the hell cares?
Rememeber that thought-
I've already explained?
How careless they are
With our lives in this dreadful game
And, who exactly are "they? "
Well, that we aren't privileged to know
Like everything else,
From this ridiculous show!
You know- life, that is
The movie or book
The one that severed me
While my heart it abducted, took
But why I am really so angry?
Why I am so mad?
It's not even about me
That's not what makes me sad
It's the truth about life
About this world
It's the storybook ending
With a dark, dark eclipse
A giant black pearl…
