Old Poetry Poem by Elizabeth Grace

Old Poetry

Rating: 5.0

Nobody loves me
nobody cares,
nobody needs me
or just wants me there.
Nobody hears me,
in darkness I cry,
nobody holds me,
in darkness I die.
And as I hold
this gun to my head,
I hear the world whisper
'she's better off dead.'

A poignant rendition set aside for sober reflection. Very heartfelt with strong emotions. Thanks for sharing.

wow....i agree with stefanie. this is a disheartened piece...but very creative and i like the flow though! your recent years must have been tough, but like i said in one of my poems, 'You make your own choice with the dreams you shelter That seems way uphill, just makes you stronger, ' It sure made you a strong, brave and raging poet! !

That's a really depressing poem, I hope you no longer feel as such. Great poem, though, even if it was written some time ago.
