The Poetry Bar


As I lie awake,
A new nightmare.
Another heartbreak,
Some more tears.

I won’t let it break me.
Once again, I swear.
But this pain is already,
More than I can bear.

Maybe I should try again.
But I don’t even care.
‘Cause when I got the mark of Cain,
I knew the world is unfair.

I know what I gotta do.
I can now see it clear.
I’ve gotta stop to pursue,
The ones that I hold dear.

Yes, it’ll be hard at first.
But once I overcome the fear,
I’ve gotta learn to trust,
That what’s mine will come to me right here.
