2008 -- 1.1 (Fall) Poetry


By Glenn Banish, Elektraphrog Assistant Managerial Editor 

As my head unravels
These thoughts they turn to thread
These threads they hold my eyes wide open
I’d kill to fall asleep
To finally be at peace
For no one is lonely in a dream
My burdens
They feel like feathers
Compared to what you weigh on my mind
Until this day
I still don’t know why
I miss the way you used to talk me to sleep at night
I know that I’m the only one there is to blame
But you are what is keeping me
Keeping me awake
