    just looking for a little hope Moderator

    Over half thus far aren't good, but it's helped me process a lot, which I'm going to count as a win.

    yeah good okay

    Had a bit of a lull transitioning to a new job where my hours are longer so I'm trying to schedule my writing. Still got a ways to go on the first draft

    Permanent Pen -

    You burn me like the sun,
    Blind until morning comes
    That skin is tinged and blistered,
    An overwhelming glare in the sky
    Culminating into a buzz that I misread
    Every time winter hooks its teeth
    And the world sinks back into night

    Tell me apart from your volatile dreams
    While I stare off into nothing
    Mulling over half-formed thoughts,
    Wishing for an answer as to why
    I let you pass by the line I drew;
    Hoping for a sign of completion
    After all of our sanity is finally wasted

    Was it designed this way from the start?
    Were there ever words kept to heart?
    Do I cling to the safety of warmth?
    Or become aware of the truth in my ear-
    I don’t want to be afraid anymore

    As the thought of settling for less
    Leaves me in scorn, once again,
    I’ll learn to draw a new line
    With a permanent pen
    And just keep trying to
    Turn off the burning light
    That is called letting you in
