Fame And Missfortune. - Poem by John Wilken

No friends to be found
in a crowded room
never hearing a sound
and hay
whats my name
long since unused I've forgotten
is it still the same
theres no bridge over trouble waters
and the lighthouse has gone dark
theres no reason to go on life has lost it's spark
the flicker to the flame has lost it's glow
the party is over
it's time to go.
the lights are dark
the sky is grey
the mood is blue
no more to say
just take a deep breath
and walk away.

    I agree with this poem and enjoyed it very much. My only problem with it is that you sound heart broken and although that feeling is perfectly normal, it is the feeling that life should end in which scares me. Life will always get better I myself am living proff of this fact. Suicide nor dealth is ever the answer to a horrible problem all though you may feel that you can not die if you are already dead.
