I Can't Sleep

I Can't Sleep

A Poem by ♪The Girl Next Door♪
"

A song I wrote about letting go of the things holding you back, the things that may scare you the most...

"

Look down

At the scars that you've made.

Look up

At this world that you've saved.

You gave me the sun

Took away my pain

Just to turn around

And make it rain.

 

No I don't know

How to help you

This is all so new to me

Tell me something

will I change for you?

well who do you want me to be?

 

I can't sleep

with the ghosts of my pasts still knocking on my door

I can't hear you anymore

No I can't see

through the shadows of the ones I've lost but I've loved before

Where are the ones I'm fighting for?

No I can't sleep.

 

For so long

I've held it all in

now it's time

to let go

of the past.

Now I sit alone

with no one but my mind

dangerous

did it happen too fast?

 

No I can't sleep

with the ghosts of my past still knocking on my door

I can't hear you anymore

No I can't see

through the shadows of the ones that I've lost but I've loved before

Where are the ones I'm fighting for?

No I can't sleep.

 

Now the cages that I keep locked up at night

All those monsters start to put up a fight

If you can't keep them away it's alright

But if I get too scared will you turn on the light?

Turn on the light, yeah...

 

I can't sleep

with the ghosts of my past still knocking on my door

I can't hear you anymore

I can't see

through the shadows of the ones I've lost but I've loved before

where are the ones I'm fighting for?

 

No I can't sleep

with the monster that I thought I slayed still layin' on the floor

can it whisper its lies anymore?

No I can't see

Through the eyes of a blind man screamin' "I've seen this all before!"

where are the people I used to adore?

No I can't sleep.

I may sound like a detail-b*****d, but I noticed an error - fourth stanza, last line: it should be "too" instead of "to". xD
I like the poem. It's kinda dark and sad, but still powerful, especially because of the repeating stanza. I think that one packed a punch to the poem.
And collaborative work sounds like fun! But writing a good rap isn't easy, so I'm interested in how it will turn out in the end.
Be sure to send me a read request once it's finished!

Such prolonged sadness. The emotions of this race through my head and my heart at once. I feel like fainting from the utter rush this piece has provided. No lie. Eloquent and convincing. Stunned into utter silence...

This is a true masterpiece. I can feel everything you're feeling when I read your poem. I can sort of relate, I've loved a lot of people but none of my loves has ever loved me back. It helps to read something you can sort of relate to. And this was so well written, I feel like you're really passionate on this particular topic. Great poem!
