Crippling Darkness

A summer night in an autumn's room
My fingers shaking, my heart's constant boom

My eyes are closed but i'm not asleep
The fan on high is the only faint squeak

Repetition makes a fool out of me
(Change the game to live happily)

Prayer offered fervently upon shaking knees
The shadows descend from outside trees

Hypocrisy, shame: the names of my game
My misery, my reality needs no such fame

Repitition makes a fool out of me
(I'm changing the game, so I can see)

    Hi Juli, I came to this poem because it's couplet, being generally a couplet writer myself thus I'm attracted to them. I see this as opening the heart and eyes to a brighter future, very well written. I'd like to thank you for the placement in your last contest, much appreciated. Take care, Richard
