"Stale Kisses"
Secluded in my lonely thoughts of pessimistic dreams
that I see fading away in the dark tunnel that leads to nowhere
Iím no longer content with these basic needs
that used to feed my soul
Now I want so much more from life,
A visual appeal to brighten my worn out soul

I have no energy to even crawl this worthless body out of bed,
but my bed is the only place where I feel safe
So I sleep away the pain
Only now,
Paranoia has crept its way in my dreams 
that are now horrifying nightmares
Insomnia has become my new best friend,
My only friend

3 a.m., 
I drag my tired feet down the cold stairs
hearing nothing but a shrilling cry that is my own
I can no longer hide behind these death-filled tears 
My eyes have cried their last tear
And as I plunge onto the hollow ground,
I have nothing to show but a life filled with fear

Stunningly powerful work, Jenn.

Paranoia has crept its way in my dreams
That are now horrifying nightmares
Insomnia has become my new best friend

There are too many fantastic lines in this poem to mention....but these are so powerful and speak very deeply to me. As someone who has been to the place you are writing about it gives me a strange kind of comfort to know I am not alone.
Our intelligence tells us there are many others but in the dead of just us with our demons. Into my favourites for this one!

Wow! Talk about expressive! It's a terribly sad poem but I enjoy the way you've arranged it. Get's your point across well!
