Life - Poem by Lucille Martin

what do you do
when everything is falling apart
and you are lost
in the dark

you thought you knew
the people that you love
and then suddenly you see
all that you have been blind to

all the hate
and no love to be found

impossible surroundings to escape
no way out
no one there to help you
everyone has left you

dying ever so slowly
and no stopping it
just stay there
and wait

sit there
shutting your mouth as usual
letting them tear away at you
their words

someone to talk to
someone who won't leave me
tired of an ongoing hell with no one there

I guess.......

    Hi Lucille! ! Thanks for commenting on my poems. This poem, though sad, is very well structured. Though at times life seems dark, there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Don't you ever forget that. :) Take care girl, Melanie (Report) Reply
