Cannot Explain- A Poem

Cannot Explain

I cannot explain it to you

But God whenever the sun goes down

I cannot help but feel blue,

Cannot help but frown.


The happiness from the day

Quickly disappears,

Just as easily as the sun goes away

All of my worries appear.


All the strength I felt before

Dwindles to an all time low,

All hope and faith walks out the door

And I get hit with the biggest blow.


Memories of childhood remind me how weak I am

And I curl up in that tight ball again,

Realizing I'll never be able to take a stand

And that I'll always be this way in the end.


No longer able to fight the tears that fall

I give into the sad thoughts with in,

Upon my knees I crawl

And beg for forgiveness of my sins.


For those are the only reasons I deserve such pain

The only reason I will never have a good night's sleep

The only reason I feel this disdain

The only reason at night I weep.


That is why I beg for forgiveness tonight as the sun goes down

I ask for a good sleep, no more nightmares

No more cries, no more frowns

I ask that you show you care.


I cannot explain it to you

Not out loud at least,

So I write it down to get it through

That at night I feel like a beast.


You make no mistakes

I hear it all the time,

So I pray tonight before my heart breaks

Make this night mine.


Help me close my eyes

And escape with in a dream

For that tomorrow I will be able to live my life

For it'll be better than what it seems.


I cannot explain it to you

But God whenever the sun goes down

I cannot help but feel blue,

Cannot help but frown.

There is something here...something very universal, yet so lonesome.
