Addictive Misery - Poem by Melissa Robinson

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
