Missing Pages

by Rolo   Feb 27, 2009


Stagnate in motion, bound by your hate
These words flow freely, yet carry no weight
A million times over, your reign won't end
You've long since left, or so I pretend

Talking with no one, a seed from my past
Planted and growing disturbingly fast
I deprive its efforts with all of my own
You're the devil that lurks--

You keep me alone.

I will you away with my cruise-controlled mind
There's a place in my heart which you've been assigned
The part that allows for my dosage of pain
You're the voice that kills--

You keep me insane.

I searched the shadowed remains of my soul
In a landfill of guilt, I found it whole
You murdered the child who once lived in me
All that's left is some tattered debris

Victim, survivor; none of the above
A hollowed shell, not worthy of love
Immersed in pity, and walled by doubt
Emotional thirst is plagued with drought

My story is written as the pages are burned
Details ash for they need not be learned
I live with fear and protective distance
Always alone--

You harm my existence.

    I've been following you for years.
    From time to time, I stumble back to your page and re-read what once impacted me so much.

    It's a form of nostalgia when I read the titles of your poems, because though I already know what they consist of, I still feel like there is something new within them, because my perception has changed over the years.

    The funny thing is, is that though my perception has changed, re-reading your poems brings me back to that present moment, of me, myself - 5 years ago.

    Simply stunning. You truly have an infinite talent as you write so that every word has meaning. The structure is not that of a typical poem but you have a talent in making it work. Every ounce of this poem scream origionality from its creator and I truly enjoyed reading it. Please keep writing and I look forward to reading regularly.
