Emotional Paralysis


The energy I do not have to fight this
Its like a black hole reeking my sense of pride
Its feels like with it I'll never have peace
For the past few days its been taking me for a ride
The spoken word is my only form of releasThe spoken word is my only form of release
The emotion filled liquid can smoothly glidThe emotion filled liquid can smoothly glide.

Dont ask. I have no answers
Dont hide. I have no energy
Dont love me. I have no love
Dont hurt me. I have no tears left
Dont use me. I have no fight left in me
Dont do anything. I have lost everything
Right in the fire
When things were lovely and gooWhen things were lovely and good
My belongings burnt
When things went souWhen things went sour
My life turned to ashes

You are nothing but your life
I am nothing but ashes
All around I am filled with strife
To this glass life adds dasTo this glass life adds dashes
Last time against me it held a knife
They go infront of me too quickly like flasThey go infront of me too quickly like flashes

Propelled to be compelled to switch it off
I am no machinery but I am controlled
I am defenceless for they did maul
I lie. I say I'm fine
Dont dispute that. I have no gut left in me
Dont ask me to breathe. I have none of that left
Dont ask me to live. I do no have him

Foolish enough to still want him
After he has damaged my trust
At this point everything seems so dim
Or maybe I'm driven by lust
Its time I stopped being hateful
We were.
We were greatful.

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
