A Poem by Doll

written in 2007. -- A little emo, but I felt like that at the time. :)


it's that moment when you leave the house
when the sun is shining
the air is fresh
a new morning for your tired eyes

it's when the light comes through
the corners of buildings
setting the windows on fire
that you remember to breathe

it's then that you realize once more
that your life is all you hate
and you lose your smile along the way
to another round of dreadful deeds

it's when you sulk through the day
wishing to be somewhere else
hoping for a chance to start
living, living; LIVING

it's when you see the free
and you dream of another life
pleasant, carefree; worth it
and you know that you can't be

it's when the sun is setting behind the hills
when the wheels stop turning
and your steps get closer to home
to a place where you can't leave

it's when you're lying in the dark
feeling the soreness of your mind
and the thoughts just won't stop spinning
that you know that nothing will change
