All The Same

I can always find myself in my poetry, even though I never have any recollection of putting myself there. I am who am. And I really do have head pains.


My head hurts
I know pain
To live

To die
To me it’s all the same

Night and day
They’re all the same
When you leak shadows
From your brain
It’s all the same
I am who am
But who’s to blame?
All I have is numbness
To my name
Since my ruin
I’ve remained the same

Fight or flight
It’s all the same
When I kill my demons
They come back all the same
