The Lone Wanderer

What am I doing here?
Running on my lonely fear
Waiting for somebody
Clinging on some memory

I should take rest and sleep
Let the tiredness be swept
But my mind still struggle to awake
Doesn't want time to be wasted 

I don't know what to search
I need some sign to be heard 
Before I lost in helpless state
Clawing on my darkness plate

If I look outside the window
I will only see the field full of snow
If I stare inside my burrow
I will only have the darkness of sorrow 

I wish to find a flame
That could burn me with passion
Before I left numb and cold 
Without a will, without something to hold on

I want to go to a place
Where I could hear my own voice
Before I disappear in the crowd
Without a name, without a home to remember

I keep looking for another light
Even thought it brings me to night
I keep looking for another word 
Even though I know I might be hurt

I keep avoiding the talk about the end
Even though it is a certain omen
I keep resisting to say good bye
Yet it is the fate all should lie

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
