Night Terrors

Midnight fears of adolescent death dreams, when you’re alone no one can hear you scream
Pound your head against the wall
Pound your head against the wall
How many days until you fall, never to rise again?
I don’t care
Yes you do, that was all an act
Remember when you used to fly?
Yes, it was all that kept me from dying
That was the only advantage from that vantage point
That lonely age and fear of engagement
Pushing them all away
But there was one?
Yes, once
Still pounding your head against the wall?
Yes, daily, it’s flagrant
Frightening enlightenment?
Forgive and let yourself live
