Cruel and Ruthless

by David   Jun 12, 2007


I tell you to turn away
Please don't look, I am a fool
I have surcome to the pain
I'm fighting a loosing battle
My own epic duel

I crumble and fall
I am exhausted and weak
I can't continue this, I am spent
The darkness, I will not speak

No, I have learned that I should
Hold my pain in myself and deal
Bite my lip and force myself not to cry
In time, somehow I will heal

Yet not now, not anytime soon
But I am biding time now, waiting for a break
To run away from this pain and suffering
I need to, for my own dam sake

Who is to stop me?
My inevitable struggle to survive
My hard times with sharp words of hatred
My life to continue is all I strive

Cruel and ruthless
Dangerously close to letting go
If only I could say how much I hurt
If only I could make you know...

    Hi david,
    Does this poem have anything to do about mat, especially when u told me the other day that u had taught yourself to hold it in. I love it i felt the same way after Ryan and Rob passed away. Sorry if have got it wrong but that's how it looks to me ok
    This is my favourite bit(probally because it relates to me the most):
    No, I have learned that I should

    I love it. I want you to write more because when i read your poems i am in your world not mine.

    Talk soon ;)

    You seem very popular when it comes to your peoms and so im sure i have repeating the same points others have made but i want to show my love for this poem and my support for it.

    my favourite stanza was:

    Cruel and ruthless
    Dangerously close to letting go
    If only I could say how much I hurt
    If only I could make you know...

    This poem had such a ferosity and such a burning fire within it. It seems like you testing yourself, testing the devil itself also. I love the contrast bewteen pain, loss and grievance. The poem seemed to be tiring (in a good way), it added to the drama and emotion of it all. It has this slogan attached to it "whats the point of living if you cant feel alive" .... i really enjoyed this, well penned. keep up the great work.
