FAdes to Black

I wish that I could sleep forever,

Drift in dreams and never wake,

Hide from the life I didn’t want,

Erase the memories I can’t escape,

With shadows closing all around,

My soul is becoming unwound,

I’m locked in a cage that I made,

Imprisoned by bars of my own pain,

The door can’t be unlocked or opened,

There’s a key in me but it’s damaged, I’m broken,

In time everything ends and draws to a close,

It’s not me giving in, I’m leaving, letting go,

Too far gone to find my way back,

As my eyes close it all fades to black…..

  1. I’ve not attempted to write poetry in a long time and I’m a bit sad to say I don’t go out of my way to read it much these days, something I should change.

    I found yours quietly sad. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
