wide awake

A long ten years I think it’s been

Living in my bitter sin

A world of joy I should have known

A piercing knife through the bone

All these memories I dare not save

Buried in a secret grave

No flowers, no tears, no remorse

No marriage, no ring, nor divorce

You broke my wings but I’m not tame

And all the while I’m to blame

In this cage an unseen prison

Filled with rage a tragic vision

I look your way in a glance

And I knew there was no chance

You took my youth and I realize

I see the truth that I despise

Ashamed of my big mistake

Laying here wide awake

It’s 4 am, I should be sleeping

I write these words not worth keeping

I read this back, it sounds so gay

All the words and how I say

My thoughts are there just not coming

In my head a constant humming

My head is throbbing I need a break

The sleep I need I can’t take

My job is waiting and I’m not there

Numb inside I just don’t care

Facing life a simple fact

How I am and how I act

I’m not your minion not your slave

Just fired up to misbehave

The poem "wide awake" has a really good flow, and just when I think I get the meaning, I think maybe I am wrong. -Einstud

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
