Another Greek Tragedy

Another Greek Tragedy

A Poem by Nervana Zahran

Coffee stains on every page,
I write to expel the demons from my brain,
I write to expose the deepest parts of my soul..
Words collapsing on every page,
I am struggling to express the nonsensical thoughts in my head

Ink stained shirts and a restless mind,
Losing what’s left of my sanity is undenied,
I’m an unread book left behind,
A rusty soul lost in a labyrinth of chaos,
A persona created by the mindless games,
Only a fool can survive unharmed and unashamed

I followed a ray of sunshine and neglected the wisdom I’ve gained,
I’ve fell and my mask unleashed a vulnerable self I’ve kept unrevealed,
I should've protected her for all my life, I could've!
But I’ve made an exception for just this one time, How foolish..

Soon enough, I’ve flown away following my sunshine array,
Overwhelmed by the freedom I now have; I’ve abandoned my guards,
I had no care though I exposed all of my cards

I’ve went too far, my wings have melted away,
Falling between skies is thrilling yet scary,
So I’ve clutched on a cloud but I can not stay, I’m so weary..

Am I gonna fall or will I drift away?

Clouds are made out of vapor. Youre probably gonna fall...

I have a Ford Ranger modified with a propellor for flight.

Thats how I get around. I could swing by and pick you up, but I don't really like people in my vehicle.

I guess you'll just have to imagine some kind of way to get out of it yourself.

I heard of someone who wished upon a shooting star once. Turns out the Sun is shooting through space.
