I'll Never Wake Up Free

    I'll Never Wake Up Free

    breathing imitates life
    so i guess when im alone
    i try to exhale
    even while i sit
    like a stone
    in the middle of my room
    my eyes closed
    trying to forget everything
    but it never stops stinging
    you dont think you hurt me
    thats why i let you live
    to you we were nothing
    so your life is all i can give
    you deserve to live
    to never know the path i walk
    the fears and nightmares
    that make me stutter when i talk
    grasping at feeling
    like a hand holding chalk
    darkly dreaming
    of the kind of meaning
    that only lovers know
    when i remember
    every whisper of love
    that never grew
    from you
    always it will be you
    in the midnight sweat that i cant shake
    ill see your face
    every time im awake
    from something i cant fight
    that not even the light of day
    can take away
    i know inside
    ill never lose the hold
    you have over me
    i know that someday
    will never be the day i wake up free

    such darkness. its deafen.. the madness this creates is like a volcano after it erupts and destroys. very beautiful write. even the pain of accepting can be moving.



    i really hope you read everything i put up here....i dont post everything i write, only the poems that really move me as i read them the week or month or year after...how did you find me by the way?

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
