Day After Day

Poem By Rachel Brewer

Day after day,
This hunger eats away at me.
Eating me from the inside,
Because I cannot feed from the outside.
No way, I won’t take that risk,
Of making the disease permanent.
I need to though,
I’m so hungry.
I want to feed,
But feeding means killing,
Killing a person,
And I’m not prepared to do that.
Even if I must die.
Which I will.
If I have to.
Day after day,
I want to eat,
I want to eat, but the only thing I can eat,
Is horrible.
It makes me sick just thinking about it.
Drinking from a living source,
It’s wrong,
And I know it.
But I’m so hungry.
All I can do is watch,
Watch myself waste away,
Waste away,
Day after day

Where The Wild Things Are

Do you want to know where the wild things are?
If you do, come with me now.
If you don’t, why are you here?

Asylum

The voices all around me,
Bouncing around the room.
You cannot begin to understand,
Can’t imagine the gloom.

Shine Your Light

You shine your light on me,
All the time, every day.
And I feel it all the time.
You shine on me and make me great.

Kill Me, Kill Me Now

Kill me, kill me now.
Because my life isn’t worth the wait.
I ask you, to end my life,
So I don’t go through the pain,

Friends

To all my friends that have come and gone,
I have been thinking about you,
Thinking that I should have said so many things that I didn’t,
Things like I love you, so much and I will always love you until the end of time,

The Angel

An angel came to me in the night, and asked me to dance.
The angel wanted to save me, save my soul.
The angel asked me if I would die tonight.
He said he could take away all of my pain.
