If you let it, it will swallow you whole
Sadness and self pity
Clinging to you like a blanket of mist
Eating at your soul 


Sadness will drain your strength away
Sucking the light from your eyes 


I'm not a happy person
Guess it isn't in my nature
I only write when I'm sad
Lately, I'm running out of paper 


Why can't I be happy 
Why do I try so hard, not to be
I push people away
Even those closest to me 


Don't know what I'm sad about
Don't know if I really care
Some things I don't need to figure out
When you're sad, curiosity is rare 


Five hours of starring at the ceiling 
I begin to get a funny feeling
What if I will never fall asleep
Then the voices will continue to speak
Until I crack and lose my mind
You hear about it all the time
"Man can't sleep, so he kills his wife!"
With a hammer, a sink and a kitchen knife 


"I will let you sleep" The little voice said
"I'll turn down the volume in your head"
It's a trick, don't be deceived
Peace comes only when you are dead 


There are lots of things I don't tell
If thoughts were sins, I'd go to hell
I dream of things I'd do to you
I dream of things I shouldn't do


Author's Notes:
I put this under the category depression, not because i think it necessarily belongs there, but because I couldn't find a more appropriate category.
I don't suffer from insomnia, but at times I am kept awake because my mind wont shut up..

I can feel your frustration; these words cut like knives. You're very good at bringing your emotions to life.

Im not that clever, but I dont run out of paper.

I will never be too oblivious to the needs

Maybe you should drink more coffee

maybe not..., maybe not indeed

The mind can be a tricky maze when trying to fall asleep; it would seem easy for some, but for many it is not.
