This Site Saved my Life....

by Lost Soul   Sep 17, 2012


I think this site has saved my life
and given me so much insight,
to see the fears that we all share
in a world full of despair,
when you feel like no one is there,
and you're the only one who cares.

It's hard to move on with a past
that taunts... with the painful memories
of ghosts that haunt. It's hard to see a
future, past, or present...
while presently I feel so tormented.

To break the chains of myself loathing
of secret fears and thoughts unspoken,
unto a world which I lament,
and regret taking every breath.
I keep on trying but get knocked out,
that's not a smile I'm upside down.

The chemicals that call to me
the drink the drugs there serenity,
it only lasts for just a bit,
come back into a life of shit.
I do look forward, I do try harder,
with each and every passing hour.

The joys that come they always fade
searching for those better days,
I hope they come I really do
I just don't know what else to do.
Constantly curious of the other side
always wishing I would die, I hold my breath
and count to five......

I think this site has saved my life.

    I think it looks much better now...it's much easier on the eye of the reader. I'd just ask you to have a look at this stanza...

      I thought about using frown but I really liked the imagery of the text so I opted to repeat the word. Prolly should change it though cause it was kind of bugging me as well.

    You have a really good poem here I feel. It's very honest and full of raw emotion. I think you could improve on it a whole lot more if you changed the layout to make the rhymes at the end of each line....I think it would flow so much better if you did.

    If you need some help....just let me know.
