My Own Reflection

This feeling,
My suffering,
Not healing,
Just muffling,
My cries,
Of sorrow,
Dry eyes,
Tomorrow-

Will be,
Depressing,
For me,
Regressing,
Again,
This pain,
Won't mend,
Disdain,
Won't end,
I must,
Pretend,
To be happy again,

Repressed regression,
Unyielding pain,
Depressed retention,
Nonexistent gain,

Useless thoughts,
False solutions,
Permanent knots,
Undeserved retribution

So lonely,
So cold,
I'm only,
Fool's gold,
Fake jewels,
False reward,
Biased rules,
Can't afford,

To be nice,
To be sane,
Tried it twice,
With no gain,

I've proven to be,
Truly evil inside,
This is the true me,
There's no need to hide...

    Remember, No Limits, Just hurdles to Jump over! ! ! Think positive, I understand it is hard at this time, but without it as you said, 'My Suffering Not healing'. I feel reading your poems that the true you are not evil as you say, but a warm, loving individual, who has a lot to give!

    I travel to see My Derrick tomorrow, I have missed him so much and can't wait to hold him in my arms. Don't Suffer! reach out to to those that love you!
