waking up

A chapter in the book Beautiful Death

Morning disappointment

by cbat

Once again
the pain
waxes and wain's
why can't I sleep

morning again
I want to go back
follow dream track
I dreamed I was dead

finally I said
I woke up dead
sick I am
of toasting bread

don't want breakfast
lunch or dinner
tired of trying
to be thinner

sick of life
it's too much strife
kids have problems
between husband
and wife

old I am
I don't want
woman or man
friends are too much

wish to run
or play with a ram
happy I was
to wake up dead

don't want to
wake up
if dead

why wake up
if really dead
wheat's the point
it must be said

Woke Up Dead writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a poem that includes the line: I woke up dead

each morning, wishing
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
