Skull Rattler

I am sick
Of wasting all my minutes
On some worthless emotion.
Dwelling in the same
State of mind for too
Much time,
I need more to be satisfied.
I am sick of always
Feeling trapped by my feelings.
I don’t have enough
Breath in these lungs
To say all I want.
Even if I had a lifetime
Of oxygen it wouldn’t matter
Cause I still don’t know
Who I really am
Or what I really believe.
And I am sick of this fake high.
This fake life
These false lies,
These ties that have always
Held my heart too close
To the ground;
I can’t fly.
So I know it’s killing me
By the seconds
Like a poisonous gas,
Yet I stand by and
Watch myself die.
I am sick
Of being alone
But I don’t know how to explain
What I can’t plan
And I’m so lost now
That I can’t pretend
This doesn’t hurt anymore.
I want to believe
In all of my dreams,
But my tears believe
In reality.
