    be gentle i havent written in a while and i have never posted here before

    The Heartache, the pain
    Lord knows
    I’ve had my share
    Of agony and grief
    The tears drenching my face
    I scream but know one
    Hears me yell
    My nervous
    Frantic
    Life moving so fast
    Lost
    All alone
    Confused
    Contemplating suicide
    But do I really want to die
    Thoughts all array
    Head down body bent over
    Mumbling to myself
    With tears in my eyes
    Scared
    Of what
    I don’t know
    Perhaps the world
    So big
    Me
    I’m trapped
    Ashamed of myself
    don’t know who I am
    What am I here for
    What have I done
    Listen to myself
    Who have I become
    A slave to my own selfish ways
    I know the way out
    But do I really want to leave
    No
    I like it here I love the pain
    Slowly I wonder outside
    And stand in the rain
    Screaming at the skies
    And cussing in vain
    I hate it here
    Wishing for death I
    Falling to my knees
    No emotions left
    So Barren……

    <appears from nowhere>

    Sometimes life beats us down and pushes us to the edge. But to give up or give in to it is the worst defeat. If happiness and peace were full time all the time aspects of our lives we would die of euphoric boredom. We define ourselves and find ourselves through joy and saddness, each in its own turn and measure. They strengthen us.

    Nice piece, riddled with pain, that u conveyed well.
    Welcome, U now have a forum to release that pain, and use it to re-energize yourself. So, I encourage U to write. Express yourself and your soul. And just maybe, after seeing your words bloom, U will find yourself, and meaning.

    my friend...

    you've painted an agonizing portrait...that speaks to the pain of many. nonetheless, i hope this is only an art form and not how you feel...coz suicide isn't an option for one BLESSED with the gift of flow. the river must continue. don't let it stop now.

    LET THE RIVER FLOW.

    Sometimes the ways of life can be a bit too much to bear but just know that there is shelter from the rain as you scribe a poetic umbrella to cover you from the pain.
    Tyte piece poet!

    Peace !

    I am familiar with the flavor of this "painting"...once i paint it , even if it takes a series of paintings/poems, i always eventully gain a new insight changing my perception even if my reality remains the same...keep writing poet...keep writing..for me writing does so much...even when I am not posting ...I am still writing...excellent scribe...welcome to the family...much love to you.
