Self Destruction

December 1, 2010
My fear and nerves within keeps me here-
Here where mortals live
But I breakdown and cannot forgive-
These thoughts that bring me tears

In spite of joy, sorrow conquers all-
Today and every other
I can’t be crazy, many another-
Must have the thoughts of a curtain call

Awake for nightfall, sleep through the days
An unchanging cycle that goes by
In this world that is so dark and grey
I wish to say my final goodbye

Apathetic to this world and life combined-
My mind leads me blind
The day has come; I’m in that state of mind-
To leave this world behind

Wow, this is beautifully written. I love the whole theme of this poem, even though it's very sad. Your stanzas are perfect, and they all flow really well. I especially love the last line. Very well done. (:
