7-Minute Drabble

7-Minute Drabble

A Poem by shayne

Just what an angry, creative mind can do in 7 mminutes

The rhymes felt right
But not impressive
They talked of my pains
Never too complete
I wasn’t ruining the future
But I’ve given up to live
Don’t want life to be harder
Yet afraid it’d stand still

A thousand dreams
I’ve wanted
Couldn’t get a grip
I lost it when I surrendered
But hope never seemed to leave
I’ve wanted things to be over
Apart from the common instinct to live
My heart aches for compassion
And an understanding gaze

I feel wrong-er everyday
Never a good deed to show
I was failing at every step
No mistake could make me grow
I tried to runaway
Took a risk by giving up
The sorrows never surrendered
The demons are heating up

I’ve dreamt to be a hero
With a red cape to save lives
Never thought of the dangers
This obsession has become
I was a child of great passion
Hopes that could light up the dark
But things spiraled out of control
And words for the wrongness
Will never be enough
