Addictive Misery


I push away your accusations;
say what you want dear, I will not listen..
All the time i spent on you is now wasted;
how could I put myself in this position.?

I am so tired of being deceived,
You have torn my motivation away from me..
Each day I find it harder to breathe
and i long for a purpose so desperately.

Words cannot express my misery;
the hope that I had left' now remains history..
I don't understand how the people i love the most
became the people who degrade me constantly.

I ask the lord, 'what have i done to deserve this..?
I've looked much farther than what is seen on the surface,
I have learned that the meaning of life is to give life purpose,
So tell me why do the people I care about the most
make me feel so worthless? '

I need a reason to keep on trying;
to keep faking my smile and to keep on denying-
I must be addicted to this sorrow because not a thing can satisfy me;
not love, not family; not friends or company.

    A nicely written expression which is a crude reality to almost everyone in this world at some point of time. However, as we express our thoughts, we also hope for a brighter day. Very good poem. (Report) Reply

    Wow...that just gave me some inspiration.. And i guess i should'nt look for that reason or that meaning in life and just wait for it to come. I should probably wait n go with the motion. I don't know why but i find it hard to gain motivation no matter what i try and do. Ido sit in the quiet alot n think about life and what i can do to change some things. it seems to work a little. Thank you :) (Report) Reply

    I like the rhyme and time and message within the poem. It's a hard truth when someone hits that place. I would say though you don't need a reason to keep faking. Because it is fake, You don't need a reason to keep on denying. Because it's denial. Just embrace who you are. Though you feel empty you are not dead. Dead people don't feel.

    So you have to find what motivates and moves you as a human being. Writing is one passion. But what pulls a tear from your eye, what makes you angry, what makes you feel?

    Quiet time no matter how much you may hate silence is the best time a person can ever have. Because it is in the silence that your spirit speaks and you hear life speaking to you. It often comes in a gentle whisper, thought or image that resonates if only for a second and that is what you must focus upon.

    You want answers and you seek to make yourself better so practice doing what I said for it is not easy but in time you will learn your place in this world weather it be to fit in or stand out. If it is to fit in then you will strengthen those around you. If it is to stand out then you are a born to be a leader no matter how much you may not want it. Good work! Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
