Pills In The Dark

I forgot to take my pills

I know I am sick still

For dreams do come

For reality I question

I run from a night so very long

I run from 3 am

And darkness so very strong

What do my pills do

Without them I am sick

Without them my life is that of a fool

I don’t know why my life is saved

By chemicals that hurt

By chemicals that already bury me

In a shallow, muddy grave

I hate the chemicals that I know help

For, because of them, pain is felt

I take my pills, as dreams stall sleep

I take my pills, for open eyes

Still make me weep
