Grudge Against the Living

Grudge Against the Living

A Poem by Brandon M. Whittaker

Eh... I finally felt creative.

I can't break free
It's so dark I can't even see
I want to know why
I can feel the sties
That are disabling my eyes
It's unbearable, now I can't breathe
Is this who I'm supposed to be?

Why does it matter to you
What the hell it is I do
What do you have against the living
That makes you so unforgiving
How do you sleep at night
When you're haunted by the sight of life
What's the point in trying to fight?

I think you're afraid
You hurt others because you're stained
But when you're alone
And the darkness around you grows
Everything you know
Only shortly lingers
Before it slips right through your fingers

Author's Note

I'm unsure as to way I made the beginning kind of emo-ish, but I guess that's just the only way I know how to start a poem o.O
