Final Sleep

Final Sleep

A Poem by Sports Girl

Pain and agony run through my body

No way to silence my mind from talking

Nowhere to go to be alone for a minute

The feeling of a failure rushes over me


Being pulled in every kind of direction

Never being able to stop and catch my breath

Knowing I’ll never be who they want me to be

Ripping open from the inside out


Head constantly spinning in circles

Not knowing who I am anymore

Losing control of everything around me

Knowing they want better than I can give


Smiles fade as quickly as they appear

Looking like the sky before a storm hits

Feeling like glass broken in millions of pieces

Thrown against walls like waves against rocks


Pushing away everyone in my life

Finished with wanting to talk about things

Sick of people saying they know how I feel

Done with no one truly understanding me


Tears no longer wanna fall from this face

One last fall to break me for good

Crashing to the ground with no sound

No one to come rushing in to see what happened


Dead silence among a nosy world

Curled up in a ball unmoving

Once last tear drop falls from these eyes

Pain slips away as they close shut

The final sleep takes over this body
