Tasty, Tasty Tear-Drops - Poem by Nicole D'Settemi

Today I have decided,
I won't provide any answers!
Because no questions matter
When I'm in tears, though I covet laughter.
I can't feel any emotions anymore,
At least, none which nurture me.
I'm ready for what's been in store,
Time to ignite this one-woman death purgery
A tragic ending needs to begin.
Of this entire nation.

My being is a country,
And, it's a full civil-war.
I'll always feel caged,
Chain me to the floor.
I can't seem to seize this
Internal storm.
I can't seem to be thankful,
Simply for "being born".

And, I know I should-
That's the kicker
I know I would,
Except that my ticker
Is smashed and smeared
Across my sleeve.
And, totally impaired,
Emotionally, I bleed,
And can't breathe.
Until this depression,
It's gone, until it leaves
Its stops testing me,
Stressing me,
Stops holding me hostage,
Arresting me!

Ch ained

I don't have much time
To tell the truth
Understand the message;
not the poetry
Of this deadly rhyme;
the rest of it

The "Y letter" - the high note
The goodbye note
The ending's start
With the reply
Because life has no meaning
When there's only one part:

A Dead Woman Walking,
With no longer a soul, nor a heart.
