Time to wake up?

Is this the correct time to wake up?
My eyes say no
Inside the pitch-black darkness
They’ve nothing to show

Is this the correct time to wake up?
My hands say no
Holding on to a cup of coffee
Afraid of letting go

Is this the correct time to wake up?
My hair says no
Sticking out in all directions—
In protest so

Is this the correct time to wake up?
My legs say no
Schlepping around in circles
With nowhere to go

Is this the correct time to wake up?
My mind says no
If there are some other reasons
It doesn’t want to know

Is this the correct time to wake up?
My gut says yes!
For if I don’t wake up now
It’ll be a mess!

Words

I write words
To get them out of my mind

Unnecessary words
Unfriendly words
Hollow words
Meaningless words
Words that disturb me
Words that haunt me
Words that follow me
Words that disgust me

One by one
I single each word
And strangle it

On a piece of paper
It loses its power
I assume control

And slowly
Piece by piece
I regain control
Of my mind

And I know I’ll be sane again
For a short while
Wordless and Powerful
