Nights

October 13, 2017

It was one of those nights
Those nights where the calm breeze brought in the cold
Those nights when the darkness lurked out and in
Those nights when I stayed dressed nice just in case
Just in case I got a call to go
Just in case I went to that party
Just in case I was finally invited
Just in case
The nights I kept my hair fly
The nights I looked at my peers share
The nights I saw the life I would never live
When I waited and waited
When I neglected to call
When the tears sealed my state
When I would look at the clock
When I knew I would never get the call
When I sloped down and accepted it
When I would slowly untie my shoes just in case
When I thought of all “the nights” this happened
When I thought of those nights the familiar chorus of pain played on repeat
When I’d lay down and die just like I had every day before
When I knew
Knew it all to be true.

I’d slump in my chair and choose not to think about the things that plagued my mind
My mind would fall to a depressed state
I would leave my room and venture out

So many dreary nights I spent wondering and pondering upon the hallowed streets
Melancholy memories and dead dreams filled my soul with a feeling of failure
Its lingering feeling of loss leaving me inept to sleep
