Close Your Eyes

Close Your Eyes

A Poem by Megan S.

A world I want to go to, but when I open my eyes at the end... It's back to following the same beat, same rhyme, same monotonous pace.


Close your eyes…

Let it go…

Fly away to a place-

One simpler than this

Where it’s okay-

To stop caring, stop listening…

Stop feeling, seeing, tasting, touching…

Where you simply aren’t

And never will be

Where the walls are black

Because your eyes are closed

And the sound is zero

‘Cause your ears are too.

Sit down, stand up, or lie back…

Don’t speak, don’t breathe

Don’t laugh, don’t bother

Life isn’t real here, love isn’t important

No one to answer to

No rhyme or rhythm, no pace to follow

Just stop.

But when you open your eyes

It didn’t disappear

We’re still changing ourselves

For approval we don’t hear.

We’re keeping a beat

And chasing a rhyme

Following rules we don’t like

Most of the time

Just to be special

To be liked in the end

By people who’ll forget

You were ever their friend…

Just wrote it in a class full of hypocrites, irritating people, and those of us who just can't take anymore.
