Why can’t I be happy #poetry #poem #amwriting

For I have cried

A thousand tears

A thousand times

A thousand days

I have cried

I toss and I turn

I cannot sleep

I cannot focus


I cannot get through

Another year

Another life time

With all this pain

Inside my heart

I am so worn down

I am so lost

I cannot find myself this time

I do not want to live

Another life time

Of all this pain

Hurt and misery

Slowly, I am giving in.

Slowly, I think you win.

Slowly, this is all I am.

Just fragile words.

For no one.
