A Poem by Miranda Olsen

Life hurts

Life drains what little joy I have with every breath I take
Wish I could plunge a needle in my heart, filled with Novocain

My friends and family have dwindled, it's like I'm a disease
And my lover chose another, so now there's no one to love me

My empty smiles quickly fade, there is no point from now on
There's no one around to lie to, so my mask is suddenly gone

I dream of plunging a needle in my heart, filled with Novocain
Then maybe I could find a way to finally numb the pain.
