I didn't think I would ever get good enough inspiration to EVER in my life write something like this. This poem isn't usually the kind of stuff I write. I suppose it is, but in a more deeper form. But I was walking out in the rain, and I was in this park. And suddenly I just stop and listen to everything around me. It was like I could hear every raindrop as it hit the ground..and then this poem began to run through my mind. It's hard to explain to you HOW it should be read, but I guess as long as I get out this message it doesn't matter. It says a lot of different things so I don't exactly know...but here you go:)

Feelings of confusion, hate, doubt and sorrow

Burry deep beneath my skin

Taking my soul

Burning my flesh

Until nothing is left and I am lost

Taken

Stolen.

Tears as black as night that fall down cheeks filled with wounds that never seem to heal

Scared with marks that reek with lies spoken from the tongue of the person who you thought would never go away

Eyes that watch the movements of the swaying grass

That catches the distractions of your mind for that one second before you die

Puddles filled with blood that smear across pavement embedded with footprints

There is a room filled with people

I scream and yet my voice is not heard because it is trapped beneath its own lies

Finally this nothing burns the rest of what makes me turning my body into the ash of the living dead

And then I am fully lost in this breeze full of angry words thrown at me from all angles that never seem to disappear

Broken dreams lay awake at night

Waiting for a place they can call home

Waiting

For this fairytale of a life to take them into the bright light in the sky

For the moon and the stars to say goodbye

And for the sun to break through the darkness that it has put us inside

Until it can take no more and its light fades into nothing and we are forever lost in this dark abyss

I am thrown from body to body

Living

Dying

Seeing soul after soul and becoming someone new for the sake of this broken world, stitched up with band aids that never seem to stick

I am alive, but yet I am dead

I am seen, but yet I am invisible

I am heard, but yet nobody listens

I am me, but yet I am somebody else

I am nothing

Closing in on loved ones bodies who lie on the ground wishing for a happy ending

I am the darkness

The night that has killed

Myself
