    I wrote this poem when I was lurking around the library early this morning, it is definitely not my best, but it's worth writing it! It's called Burn.


    Feeling left out and stretched out
    I just can't let the rest out
    Cleaning up after your mess now
    How I got here, just can't guess how
    Staring down a brokedown clock
    Seconds and minutes come to a stop
    Nothing stays and everything changes
    Searching for a new place to hang this
    I've lost sight of the light on the horizon
    I need something new to set my eyes on
    Somewhere new to write these lies on
    Can't remember how to start this
    Making my way out of this mist
    Don't know how many signs I missed
    Sinking down with my chest underground
    Water fills my lungs from the undertow
    I've Lost my fear of all that's below
    It's just another chapter in this show
    Change the channel, avert your eyes
    You've hidden from me and my disguise
    As I lay cursed and lost in my lies
    Watching the clouds chase the sky
    Inhale a deep breath and exhale a sigh
    Steam escapes my lips darting upward
    My mouth moves but can't speak a word
    Minutes and seconds seem to be frozen
    Lost in a moment, unable to hold it
    It was here, I swear it's been stolen
    So pardon me while I burn this frame
    Set blaze to the path I've followed
    I've got a desire to set the fire
    Turn my back and feel the burn
    Once I burned, now it's your turn
