no more...

no more...

A Poem by the_stoic


Reality used to be a respite

from my traumatic dreams

no more.

 

Tears used to well up in my eyes

to run their course and stop

no more.

 

The heart used to skip

a beat or two in excitement

no more.

 

Thoughts used to be devoted

to improve the chance of my love

no more.

 

A moment of bliss i used to steal

from the state of constant apprehension

no more.

 

The pain used to cease

letting me forget of my past at times

no more.

 

Through my broken pieces i used to rummage

trying to align them right and repair

no more.

 

Search for the pill i used to

to ward off my inner illness

no more.


A ray of hope used to flicker

for a better tomorrow

no more.

 

no more...

glad for you mam !
This was pretty and great words. We put ourselves in pain in order to forget our past, that's true. As in self-medication, example. We use it to escape and forget, but we only forget for awhile, not forever. It's all temporary.
