Lost Inside My Mind

Poetry By: onlyinred

Have you ever felt so desperate for help and yet you couldn't find it in yourself to ask for help? That's me.

Lost inside my mind

Not to tell a soul

In the rolling mist

I stay alone

Confused and lonely

With no-one to understand

It's never easy feeling this way

Trying to find my way from the roaring high seas to safe dry land

I could just be better

I think

If I can't be perfect

Don't tell anyone

I'm not as great as they think I am

Stuck on a boat in the middle of the ocean

Calling and calling

and nobody hears me

Because, inside, my calls are whispers

I don't need help

I've got it

and yet I don't

I'm lost and I can't find the light to guide me home

Maybe I'll just hold on through

Like I always do...
