Kiss me awake

Kiss me awake.

In a deep ravine I lay, 
Here all joy is washed away.
 Down with lovers and out with faith,
 Enter doubt, hello  hate. 
I can’t last another minute, 
Face down, mouth open, dirt is in it.
Sun beats harsh upon my back,
I’m burned and ripped, my heart is cracked.
No longer can I hear them laugh. 
Stopped listening, A, and B, go deaf.
If I close my eyes I’ll find,
 I see no more, I’m rendered blind
From the side, so quickly swiped,
Off the page, forever wiped.
Over the edge, pushed from behind,
I’ve stepped too far across the line.
In the corners of my mind,
Memories, of the good ole times,
Lingering, slowly, they too, fade,
Thunder storms on my parade.
In this deep ravine I wait,
 My lips are pursed, kiss me awake.
