Losing Sight.

by GretaInsideOut   Apr 2, 2008

The words that flow out through this darkness,
Always fail to reach the light.
It's something I will always remember,
The moments that pass us by, losing sight.

Onlookers speak in memorable verses,
Yet a circle I walk in, a circle I fall in,
In this void, I fail to surface,
Losing sight.

Laying peaceful, is such a singular depiction,
It's the months we lay broken, inside a silent hell,
These drugs we take, made to cure angst,
But it's the goals we make, the tears we sell.

A melancholy heart often makes a poet,
The reason lies within a creators hands.
Until time is right, we have no place to turn,
Find time to be alone, then he understands.

Hoping the eternal agony that possesses here,
Will lead to the place where we surpass,
Beyond the lust of those who resist,
That say love is all we need, to fill our empty glass.

Drugs are something far beyond,
Our empathetic needs,
In this life we disappear,
But along we crawl, a mirage, it proceeds.

    I liked this peice, but I didn't love it. Do not take this personally, please, but I, myself, did not feel any emotion when reading this... it was just... "word word word comma word word word next paragraph word word word...etc." I feel you left out a lot that you shouldn't have thought twice about, maybe, more to this poem, you never brought to the page.? Well, The word flow is excellent, the rhyme scheme, a bit off, but still good. I loved how you repeated, "Lost Sight" in the first two stanzas. Very interesting.

    Keep it up sweety, and Thank you for your comment. Take Care <3
