War In My Head

November 16, 2008
By Caleb Lewis, Ridgway, CO

Motivational speaker fails at his job.
Your shoes were too heavy for me to walk in.
Where have you been all night?
Not even I can answer that.
Swim to the bottom of the ocean.
The sun's rays dance twisted in the murky water.

Insomnia cuts at flesh.
Airless.
Dying.

Your idea of a good timeā€¦
Is what's slowly killing me.
I have to go find myself.
I'm a cold person.
I'm two-faced.
I'm a liar.
Skinless.
Boneless.
Faceless.
