It's a constant battle - Poetry

25/03/2015 20:10

It's a constant battle. 

Persuading myself to turn at the bend and not go straight for the tree. 
Drive straight at the fork, hoping to be set free. 
I wonder what it would feel like?
I almost want it to hurt. 
Almost want to be left limp in my evening shirt. 

Drifting on auto pilot from one day to the next,
Consciously averting disaster; occasionally typing this text. 
It's a constant battle. Knowing that alcohol could be problem solving. 
At least temporarily. 
But could that same cure stop us from mentally evolving? 
Is the world even revolving?
I sit trapped in a silent coma that seems louder than ever. 
It's like time stopped. 
Like I've been lay here forever. 

It's a constant battle, not emptying these veins of their blood. 
Always saying I wouldn't, but you know I probably would. 
It's a constant battle.
