My Final Rest - Poem by Ryan Joseph Holder

Verse 1
Broken and buried
Torn at the seems
Break from reality
Into my dreams
Where nothing seems right
And nothing feels real
Where nothing you do
Can affect how you feel

Verse 1 (cont.)
And yet you can fear
what doesn't exist
And at the same time
Fall into bliss
Where your greatest desire
Is going insane...
Where your sorrow and screams
Are drowned by the pain...

My nightmares
Are killing
Me slowly
And filling
Me quickly
With envy
Im running
on empty
The Sorrow
Is making me
Feel like
I'm taking these
Last breaths
And breaking deep
Into my
Final rest

Verse 2
Another Fragile
Broken heart
Thrown aside
and torn apart
Another nightmare
Fallen into
There's no escape
From what we do

This endless dream
Will never cease
No matter what
is left to see
will one day sleep
the eternal slumber
which we seek
And once we dream
our lives away
with nothing left
for us today
we'll look for the answers
deep deep inside
And hope to god
That we all survive
