Before I Know, My Life is Gone

March 31, 2011 § Leave a comment

I unintentionally wrote this iambic octameter poem in my head driving in dark, gloomy weather to school one morning. The words came to me naturally. I risked getting in a car accident typing this up on my cell as quick as my limited working memory could handle. Enjoy!

I walk across this foggy haze

To see my life pass through its phase

I’m trapped in this confusing place

Or am I lost without a trace?

I want some help and so I scream

From the dark without a dream

Time is ticking hard and cold

By the ticks, I can’t unfold

I try to make my life as sane

But all I know it’s just a game

No one hears my sad goodbyes

And it’s okay since I know why

My blood and sweat creep through the dawn

It cannot sleep, why can’t it yawn

The thickened clouds block my sun’s rays

Make me blind, they have to pay

I need my pills, I need it now

The darkness creeps without a bow

While frail I ask them, “Can you hear?”

With no response, I’ll do my dare

The wind so strong, I can’t hold on

Before I know, my life is gone
