My Mistake

I  awoke today at 4 AM

Cringing at the prospect of another day

I am exhausted I thought

Lost

Wandering through the darkness of my mind

Sleep was my only peace

From this cloak of sanity I must abide

For I am cracked you see

Jagged

These edges on my heart

embraced with scars

From lovers of the past

Those who taught me

Just how worthless

One can make you feel

Thank you for reminding me that I mean nothing

For a moment, I actually thought you cared

My mistake

Dreamers Prayer

As I lay myself to sleep

The silence of the dark wraps tightly around my skin

Alone in my bed 

Swimming in my own imagination 

A fairytale of memories

Written with the deepest of regret

All feels lost, but perhaps it is not 

For all that could have been and all that has yet to come 

Can always be

If I only close my eyes
