How I wish
How I wish there was an off switch for my mind
All those restless thoughts flourishing at that witching hour,
Killed the life that was within me with all its might and power.
All those devastating memories contrived with each passing day
Devouring the inside of my head like what fire does to hay.
All those sleepless nights that wouldn't let me close my eyes
Contemplating desires more naive than wise.
Oh, How I wish there was an off switch for my mind.
