night time, bedtime

When you’re little,

night time are scary because there are monsters hiding right under the bed.

But when you get older,

the monsters are different - loneliness and regret.

Although we’re older and wiser,

We still find yourselves scared of the dark.


Sleep - it’s the easiest thing to do.

You just, close your eyes.


For so many of us, however;

Sleep seems out of our grasp.


We want it,

but we don’t know how to get it.


Once we faced our demons and fears,

and turn to each other for help.

Night time isn’t so scary,

Because we are all alone in the dark.

I have a feeling.

I feel pain,

I feel emotional,

I feel like walking under the rain.


All these negative feelings are all I have.

When will the darkness go?

When will the dawn break?


At least I know,

I still have got something to lose.

of scars and wounds

People have scars at all sorts of unexpected places.

Like a secret roadmaps of their personal histories,

diagrams of all their old wounds.


Most our old wound heals, leaving nothing behind but a scar;

but some of them don’t.

There are some wounds that we carry with us everywhere,

and even though the cut’s long gone, the pain still lingers.


What’s worse?

New wounds which are still horribly painful?

or, Old wounds which should’ve healed years ago but never did?


Maybe our old wounds teach us something,

they remind us where we’ve been,

and what we’ve overcome.

They teach us the lessons of what to avoid in the future.


That’s what we think.

but it’s not the way it is, is it?

because there are still somethings we have to learn;

over and over and over again.

tell me sweet little lies

Sceptic, that’s what we trained to be as we grow.


Lying is bad, or so we’re told.

since the day we are born, and constantly.

“honesty is the best policy”

“the truth shall set you free”

“I chopped down the cherry tree” – so what?


The fact is, lying is a necessity.

we lie to ourselves because the truth friggin’ hurts!

Weather we like it or not.


but here’s the truth about the truth;

it hurts.

So, we lie.

Of Alcohol and Hangovers

Alcohol, the beverage we turn to when we need to drown our thoughts.


Little did we know, it actually helps us to think much better after a few glass.

Everything seems clearer than ever.

Every thought so vivid, lucid to the point where your senses are so alive even though you are dead tired.


The intense thought that flows through our brain,

Swift as a sunbird

Soon gets intoxicated by the fluid intake

Taking us into a whole new level of ecstasy.


The lack of self control soon gets us into deep shit.

When we are drowning with our petty thoughts.

Asking ourselves questions that we dare not ask ourselves.

Weirdly enough, we answer them honestly, truthfully.


When it comes to the point where your body couldn't take it anymore

We puke.

Along with all the pain and lies we told ourselves.


If you'd think that's the end?

You're wrong.


It is the next day which you will have to worry about.

The hangover.

The sober.

The time when you came back into reality and having to face it all over again.
