Broken and Lost

by cantchangeme   Sep 21, 2009


Here I lie with the spiders
My head to the ground
Another member of the forgotten
Waiting to be found

There's nothing to lament
With dry eyes that cannot weep
They stay forever open
Whilst others' eyes fall to sleep

Stitches that sew my smile together
Keep me happy for another day
Whilst the colours I once wore
Slowly turn to gray

Out of sight and my mind
Is where this shell rests
No thoughts in my head
No heartbeat in my chest

Just another plaything
That you forgot
Under your bed
Broken and Lost

    Wow that is very deep and such a meaningful poem. I've not been on this site for a while now and this is the first poem I've read for a long long time! My favorite stanza is:

    There's nothing to lament
    With dry eyes that cannot weep
    They stay forever open
    Whilst others' eyes fall to sleep

    It made sense to me and I dont know it's very dark and filled with emotions but my favorite line is one in stanza 3 about the stiches that make you smile. It creats such a good image to the reader!!
    Well done.

    *I LOVE!!! this stanza. It's perfect. Omg I loved how you wrote this. I haven't written a rhyming poem in a long time and this one makes me want to start again. This was such a sad and emotional piece hun. I can really feel your sadness and how alone you feel in every word and that it truly a talent. I love the simple rhyme and the flow was amazing. I can really relate to what you're saying. Great work dear :) Nik *
