BREAKDOWN

 

I am selfish for myself.

Been having nightmares

When day dreams

Creep their way in 

 

Side of my mind 

Wanders and I start to lack sleep

A wave of insomnia 

Blankets over me

 

The comfort causes shivers

In cold sweat

That I can’t control

A fever drenched 

 

In kerosene 

While the fuse is tied 

Tight to my throat

Tugging out further and

 

Further until my head is out

The window 

And with the sunrise 

It sparks the fuse. 

 

I wake up 

Not knowing what time of day

Or if it was all my imagination

That I even slipped 

 

In between my covers

Trying to avoid 

What daylight day dreams

I’ll continue to ponder

 

Wondering what time 

I have left

To do what I believe is right

As the seconds keep ticking,

 

Ticking, ticking, silence.
