Dark Places in the Night

the ghost's picture

Its four in the morning,
And I'm lying awake,
My family are sleeping,
As I ponder what pills will I take,
I don't want to leave them weeping,
But I have to escape,

This tidal wave of I can't explain,
I just need something to ease my pain,
I've screamed for so long,
No one heard what I was saying,
Now my head is thronged,
With too many demons to be slain.

Tear-drops stream down my face,
Just a few pills to be taken,
And I'll escape this place,
But there hearts I can't leave breaking,
So tomrrow I'll have to face,

Struggling in the sea,
Of my own misery,
And feeling my soul break,
With every smile I'm forced to fake.

I love the way this is written. Did you invent
this yourself? It's very creative, but it also
shows you're in pain. If you need anyone
to talk to, I'm here. Just message me!
By the way, I love your name.

"Life is what happens while you are busy
making other plans."
