Short Sad Poem

I'm not going to give you the story behind this poem, I think poetry should excite the mind, and invite deep thinking. What I can tell you is, I wrote this poem while watching a TV show on a recovering Heroin addict.

I wake up,
I never sleep

I fill my lungs,
I never breathe

I move my lips,
I never speak

Broken pipes that never leak

I open eyes,
I cannot see

I spire thoughts
I cannot teach

I drip in eighths,
I cannot listen

Tortured souls that cannot glisten

I'm 11 years old and I needed a short poem for my Literacy, and I chose this one because from my point of view, it has passionate and strict words that describe what the poem is about. I really like it and it's one of the best 5 Star Poems (rated by me :D) that I think are fabulous. Great thanks to the author :).
