I don't need to be reminded

      that its all meaningless

I feel the slow hours tick by

      from my already too short life


Another breath

Another bottle

Another wasted day gone


Fill my lungs with cancer

      And why?

I don't die faster

Fill my gut with liquor    

      The pain doesn't leave


Why try when there is no end

I refuse to race without finish

"Everything is meaningless, says the teacher"

Listless at my own apathy

I don't care to care

       I can't 

Because it doesn't matter


Why live for life's sake?

Why die to end it?


All is without purpose

"Everything is meaningless, says the teacher."

Nicely written, good structure.

I enjoyed this one a lot.  I think one sentance kind of doesn't fit in the last stanza "What hope is there for the waking dead?" Just my two cents.

You were right, it sounds much better without the aforementioned line. I have edited it, and thanks for your input. ~Seraphim
