Grief

It makes me so sick,
just thinking about it.
I don't want any of this left,
not even a little bit.

When that day comes,
of no more pain and grief,
maybe the tears will stop flowing,
maybe i can catch up on my sleep.

I'm tired of it all,
of my life, and this place,
of people searching for secrets,
in my eyes, in my face.

I want it to leave,
I want it all gone,
forever and ever,
from now on and on.

Why do things have to happen?
Is my luck really that bad?
Will it ever get better?
"Probably not," makes me sad.

For the most part I liked it. Some parts feel a little forced. "from now on and on"

"catch up on my sleep" They just slow down the flow a little bit. But overall I think it was good and even though there is a sad meaning, theres almost a tone of optimism in it, a sense of humour. Nice[:
