I am screaming again and
Throwing my fists into my mattress.
I am laying here trying so hard
To be something more than this.

My sheets are crumpled from
Being horribly wide awake
And restlessly unconscious,
But they still smell like you.
And it is achingly cruel.

I don't believe I will die,
But I do believe in reckless behavior
Because as hard as I try I
Will never be good enough for you.

My hands don't fit in yours
But I keep trying to force them to.
And I know you will let me
Because I am weak and I
Will undress when you ask me to,
But I really hope you don't.

I am screaming again and
It shakes my bones.
I scream until my voice breaks
And there is nothing left.

I am hollow.
I am empty.
I am too far gone.
Very random.
Sometimes I'm crazy.

Sort of creepy, depressing, awfully sad and haunting.
I like it!

wow amazing peom. i love the confliction between the love for the said person and the fear mixed with hopelessness. And the whole "I'll do what you want if you ask me, but please don't ask me too." idea. :)

I love this poem! My favorite lines were My hands don't fit in yours/But I keep trying to force them to. I don't find this random at all. I think it is a beautiful expression of hopelessness. Thank you for sharing.
