ABYSS
(3/3/14)


I feel
lost
in an endless
emptiness
of exhaustion

I'm so
fucking
tired

in my head

in my soul

my heart
died
so long
ago

I have
nothing
left

the only
cures
are rest
and isolation

but neither
will happen

and I see
no pharmaceutical
solutions
in sight

I settle
for caffeine

sugar

hoping
for some
surge of energy
to pull me
just this side
of suicide's
line
of fate

I do
want to
live

I just
want to live
better
than this

but right
now
I'd rather
just
sleep

no energy
for life

no courage
for death

a coward
chooses slumber
every time
