Midnight Blues

Midnight Blues

A Poem by Emma Kirchhoff
"

If you want to start a journey, you have to take the first step.

"
The clock has struck midnight 
Cinderella has fled the scene
The moon's shadows begin to dance
While the children softly dream

However, I am wide awake
Shivering in the brisk midnight air
Just sitting there and wondering 
If anyone would care

It's not that these are new
These thoughts up in my head
I just can never stop the thinking
That I'd be better off dead

I try the usual methods 
of talking myself through
Banish the negative ideas
Think of mom and you

I don't let myself out of bed
I know what would happen if I did
Long sleeves and sweatshirts in warmer weather
Fresh, new scars begging to be hid

I put my headphones over my ears
In an effort to drown out my brain
Dealing with my midnight blues
Desperately trying to refrain

As I'm drifting off to sleep
I can't help but feel I've won
While it's only a small baby step
I know that it's the first one
