Poetry Procrastination

Getting distracted instead of starting NaNoWrMo...

This was inspired by an intriguing fictional character who has deep psychological issues. :-) It's still very rough, but here goes...


Alex

Beat your head upon this wall
You need more or you need less,
But nothing's letting you run free.
If it was easy to just confess.

There's a heavy weight somewhere,
Swinging from your angry soul.
You remember all the faces
But that hate is in your own blue eyes.

You have an answer for guilt
Laughing at you and wild pain.
But numbing blood and its questions
If it would only shout forever.

There's no answer you can hear,
You filled your ears long ago.
"It's never too late," they repeat.
But they never knew people like you.

Don't fight at the bloody tree.
Death only hurts a moment.
But this dying is forever.
You know falling down is killing you.
