I just want a minor reprieve.
From these demons in my ear and the things that they believe.
I just want to sleep in peace without the weight of negativity suffocating me.
I don’t want this to be my reality anymore.
These a.m. hours leave a sour taste stain on my brain that I abhor.
The candles escape simply by burning out.
But I’m not allowed that escape route.
I don’t want to sit here with you misery.
We shouldn’t be so completely and yet we are eternally.
Another night escapes you, but i cannot.
Silently accepting my lot in life as you slowly take from me all that I got.
