A Poem by Areej

Not feeling too good

There is an intoxicating pain in my veins
With every heartbeat
It keeps getting stronger
But I don't care anymore
I know it'll be there
As long as I'm here
It's a part of me
The heart of the devil
That drains me
Chains me
It can't be slain

They say it'll be alright
But I see through their curtain veil
All I want to do is bail
But she keeps on telling me to scale
Scale the valle
Despite the pain

They say the grail is just ahead
But every time I turn away
I fall prey
And then I disobey
Till it's Monday
Then they drag me back from the gray
Despite the pain

Now I only hope for strength
The strength to keep smiling
Despite the pain
