Memories - A Poem

I wrote this poem a while ago, but its meaning still rings true to me even a few months later. So I thought I'd share it.
I lay still, the damned clock ticking
The scars upon my wrist, they're stinging
Each tick brings me further into the night
As the moon still flies it's restless flight
-
I'm feigning sleep, as the air is chill
Cold wind blows by my window sill
That damn clock, it's ticking still
And yet, no closer am I to sleep
-
A pattern of thought with no true rhythm
Frantic memories, no nearer nor distant
That god awful pain making clear it's intentions
My demons clutching beneath the skin
-
But now it's fuzzy, the unsettled night
The ticking growing faint and still
Crazy thoughts lie still and light
And finally, I drift away, for real.
-
Shadows and fog fill my sleeping brain
Visions of the day it was taken away
Stifling dark, and his heavy weight
The fear and that god awful pain! ​
-
I'll never forget.
What do you mean I have to think of an intelligent signature?

    Beautifully written, i wish I had such a gift with words. I would love to read anymore if you ever decide to write another poem, it could be a good way of you being able to express your feelings. 

    I hope your doing okay, we’re here for you. 

    Take Care

    This is such a good poem LabraBell it's really eerie, hopefully that's what you were going for. :p  I hope you feel like posting some more of your poetry soon as it's always wonderful to see people expressing themselves creatively on the boards!

    Aw I agree with @Thoughtsy & @ riley. Great self expression
    “ i think that deep down you still think life is worth living. It’s no where near over for you. You’re in pain. The thing you lost, Is the same thing that can stop that pain”

    Thank you, it means a lot.

    I have a couple other poems I have stored, so I'll put those up now.

    I'd be happy to help you if you have an idea for a poem. I ghost write for people as a hobby :)

    Means a lot to hear you say that. I'll be putting some more up momentarily. 

    I didn't really think about it being eerie... it came straight from the heart, and nothing more. Unfortunately that's almost daily life for me so I don't really know any different.
