    Another nail

    Each night I spend in this bed
    Is another nail in my coffin
    Each stinging blink
    The wood splintering as it breaks
    Each exhausted yawn
    The sound of the hammer swinging blindly
    Each helpless turn in the sheets
    The door being shut
    A hollow snap
    A sharp metal swing
    A heavy punch
    Another nail in my coffin
    Another day done
