all fade away

rhythmic thumping in my ears
out of sync with my heartbeat

music can’t completely chase
all the fears away

i can’t even figure out
what exactly i am afraid of

but all of it should be meaningless
it will all fade away when i am gone

~

there are so many greater problems in the world
why should i talk about myself?

~

every blink, every breath
every second

if i counted, would it go faster?
there isn’t quite
enough air.

reason can’t completely chase
all the fears away

why does it have to be so complicated
and can it ever be fixed?

can you fix it?

or will the rest of life on earth
be slightly broken
just like so many others?

~

why should i try?

i don’t know anymore…

~

in the end all of it will be meaningless
it will all fade away when i am gone

nobody will have to know
isn’t that what i wanted?
