Why Do I?

Written by: Skyy Allen

Why do I feel this way?
A twenty something 
Going through a post midlife crisis
Staring in the eyes of Isis
Screaming in the face of Anubis 

Questioning everything & everyone
Looking for an answer 
To questions already answered

Stuck in transition
Like static on an empty t.v. screen 
Howling at night, looking for a fight
Staring in the mirror of discontent
Trying to reconnect with people I've pushed away

Why do monsters from my childhood 
Only haunt at night?

Seeking closure for heinous deeds
Praying for some kind of sweet release
Only to find myself in a cerebral prison
Full of weeds.
