Encased in my heart of darkness long

I walk winding roads of no longer belong

Through thickness of dirges plagued 

Underneath pain that I have begged 

Tears disguised by the heavy pour rain 

Wishing for love which I have no claim 

A heart I wish to hold for only love sake 

Instead I possess pieces of heart break 

Entwined in depression no light of dark

Red stains of passed ago fresh marks

Mask of solemn hidden by casket untruth 

Age of grey lost within pain of once youth 

Time laps my sanity slowly away by time 

Until what I use to be is no longer mine

I understand this well--not feeling like an owner of who you are or feeling undeserving of love. Whatever bad place you're in, this is great poetry and I hope it's helping you find yourself again.
