Only Sleep Numbs My Pain

Glass eyed,
destistute stares,
savagely consumed by this empty space.
I cry pleading to the hollowness of,
these four bleak walls,
but i do not hear, nor see another living soul,
only the reflection of my despairing face.

I question my exsistence,
my tongue coated with the sour,
taste of my own termination.
Thoughts shattered aspirations torn,
deseased with this on going,
feeling of devastation.

    This poem makes me feel like i want to give you a big hug.lol... it makes me feel for you.. and i think any poem or song that makes a person feel emotional is very good, your poems seem to come from the heart and seem to be personal accounts of what you are feeling yourself..am i right?
