No Name

No Name

A Poem by The High Poet
"

This is something that came out when I got up this morning.

"
Some days I feel like I want to die
Other days I just want to cry
Looking back I've made so many  mistakes
But that was the path my life did take
My dreams are haunted every night
Wake up so angry I just want to fight
What I would give for a good nights sleep
A peaceful dream and some joy to keep
So many demons from my past 
How long can this possibly last
Is this what's it's like to go insane
The darkness refuses to leave my brain
So I keep on writing to get it out
No use trying to scream and shout
Oh please give me one night of peace
So then my mind won't cease

Totally relateable. Just like those days that things just don't seem right, no matter how good it may be otherwise. All the mistakes never hesitiate to come back to haunt us. Nice work! Keep it up!

I really like this poem. "The darkness refuses to leave my brain / So I keep on writing to get it out / No use trying to scream and shout" I think thats why a lot of us write. I know its the only way I keep my sanity sometimes!! And even then I'm still slightly insane :) Very well written. You captured the feeling very well. Good work.

This really caught me off guard. I heard my mind say, "Oh, my gosh! I'm not alone!" I often still wonder if it'd be better if I could just die--get away from the pain. Your words are very genuine and deep. I love how it goes against the typical hypocrites who pretend to always be happy and to judge others by their honesty of feelings. Not to say that I don't have wonderful people in my life now, but the nightmares, flashbacks and dark memories do seem to drag us down back into that pit. I'm still dealing with an addiction (that no one in my family seems to understand) that I don't feel ready to let go. Excellent writing!
