Not A Lullaby


I need a lullaby
to smooth my mind
when I'm too afraid
to close my eyes

But the only one
that dances through my brain
is her lullaby
that drowns my soothing rain.

I need some rhymes
to calm me down
while thinking of
what have I done.

Oh, what have I done?
Nothing at all
Its just my inner soul
making me fall

I don't wanna eat
Im just staring at my plate
And thinking I don't deserve
Anything I have.

I'm making myself do
What I don't really want
And in the same time
Im breaking our bond

Those cliché lines
'Its me, not you'
making me cry
and laugh loud, too.

I feel like psycho
between two walls
I hear voices
and follow all the calls

I can't resist
her sweet lullabies.
Her jail is thin
I hear all her cries

I can't resist
she's breaking throught
making me reapeat
'Its me, not you.'

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this one when I was undecided about breaking up with my ex-boyfriend. I didn't want to hurt him, but I had to decide and this poem helped me a lot.
The 'SHE' I am referring to in this poem is my so-called other part which tempted me to cheat on him and even though I didnt do that, I knew my mind was trying to tell me that I need a change and that the fact I am attracted to somebody else means that the man I was with does not make me happy enough. He was amazing, but I needed to move on.

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
