Inside These Bones - Poem by Kathryn Garner

this is the end to the parade ive led
all the fake
all the shit
it all these memories i keep adding up
and they wont go away
but they arnt real enough to live off of
so they leave me empty, and in a cold sorrowful mourning
i feel every start break with the breaking of dawn
theres no stopping the withdrawls i feel
theres no getting back the intoxication
theres no going back to what was
except in my mind
im reaching out in every direction
feeling a black wall i cant write
the chalk is black
my thoughts
it wont let me write, it wont let me change
i cant change from who i am
even though theres no joy in being it
even though theres nothing for it
im just wasting away inside of myslef
reliving the dead
i swear im going to hell for the witchcraft ive done
but its all in my head
the dreaming, the decieving, the ending
its all there
i just wish i could write it down in my lifetime
instead of it being etched in my bones
and i cant scrape it off me
they wont leave me alone
its just keeps picking, and playing wigth my emotions
till its all bloody
in this bloody hell
this bloody hell of a mind, where so much happens
so much has happened
but its never really there
its never really true
it never really happens
no matter how hard i try to write it down with actions
write it down in my lifetime
the efforts dont show
except whats etched in my bones
but no one but me can see them
