Losing Grip

by *Charisma*   Feb 15, 2007


I was holding onto something
That was never really there
Like grasping for the rainbow
But only catching air

I thought believing was enough,
Faith would make it come true.
In the end, I realized
It's something you must DO.

Now, I'm left alone to ponder
All the errors that I made.
Each one stabs deep into me
And my sanity invades.

I'm losing grip with everything
And I've lost my grip on you.
Day by day I handle life
But the handle's coming unglued.

I wish that there was somebody
But wishing's what got me here.
I put hope in my feelings.
I guess my feelings weren't clear.

Watch each finger as it lets go
Of the bar it's been hanging on.
That bar of reason slowly fades
Because all my reasons went wrong.

So I'll keep losing grip
Until there's nothing left to lose.
I should have let you go then
Now, what's there left to prove?

    That was beautifully powerful. I loved this SOOO much. You opened it with words that blew me away and you ended it the same way. Great job, and keep it up! 5/5!

    Holy shamoley...it`s like you got into my head and wrote out exactly what I feel. As I have said before, that is one thing that really draws me into your poetry, so many people are able to relate to it. You are definately one of my favorite writers. ;]

    Very cute poem.. the flow was great except for this line "But the handle's coming unglued." which seemed a little too long.. i like the whole idea of this poem and that you focused solely on the metaphor of losing your grip rather than trying to fill up lines with pointless words.. an enojoyable read.. keep it up

    :D 5/5

    and i LOVE these lines
    "That bar of reason slowly fades
    Because all my reasons went wrong."
