Painful Memories

I cannot breath
for the pain.
The energy I spend
pretending I'm all right
is far more that ever before.

I just want to sleep.
To sleep and never wake.
Let me die.
Let me embrace
that simple sleep.

Let the pain leave me
and the joy dissipate.
Let me have
perfect nothingness.

With joy
comes sorrow.
With pleasure
comes pain.
It cannot be
any other way.

So let me die
and never feel again.
