A Poem by violetta york / nicki elle

As I hear the voices calling to me 
They get louder and louder
I keep listening and I follow
I'm just one big contradiction 
I wish it was dark so I can be wide awake 
While everyone I hate is sound asleep
almost like they are dead.
Soon, soon, soon
They'll be gone just like everything else
I feel like a flower so close to death
and someone waters me once again
just to leave me to dry all over
and it keeps happening, its a scary cycle
I can't quite die but I'm not quite alive
My head hurts and I want to vanish
I'll hide in the snow or in the lake
No one will find me!
I just want to go away for good
Soon, soon soon

Yes mortality is a scary cycle. We all long for the deep sleep yet we are afraid of closing our eyes.
Nice Poem.

Poet describes a situation where one wants to leave this world, it is very moving, described the call for permanent sleep is getting louder and louder, still can not leave as poet is temporarily save, so sensitive area, emotions are expressed very vividly and reader can visualize the situation so easily, I hope this is not a real situation, only a topic for poem
I feel like a flower so close to death
and someone waters me once again
