DUSK

 

As I write, the sun goes down

Today’s mistakes I try to drown

It’s not that I'm a poet

I don’t know how else to show it

 

Sadness hurts beyond belief

Like a ship against the reef

It starts off slow I try to stop it

If a balloon, the pain would pop it

 

They give me more medication

Am I failing life’s probation?

Night is creeping ever closer

I'm a wanted man on life’s poster

 

Shadows long kind of creepy

The time will come hope I’m sleepy

Night is long when I’m awake

Frozen with fear my insides quake

 

The sun is gone only man made light

Like my heart, sun lost its fight

Colors gone only gray

Now my demons out to play

 

Some say they know my pain

I try to hide it no one to blame

My depression is getting better

Don’t rock the boat you’ll upset her

 

As I write my hearts lyrics

I know inside I have my critics

Like a flower, that’s lost its bloom

The day has ended much too soon

 

R.K.R.
