Self Taught Blindness - Poem by Sandra jacks

I thought I could fool myself,
lacking the reality I once had,
I fell back into the past,
and once again it drove me mad,
no not angry,
but yes crazy,
lost within this haze of life,
or at least what I thought was life,
until it became a deeper hurt,
this time it became much worse,
a desire to...die...

I thought I could fool myself,
turns out that my thoughts were wrong,
instead of fooling I just made it worse,
instead I chose to play along,
with the games of people everywhere,
pretending not to care,
but I did,
and in the end it almost cost me...
everything...everything,
even my L-i-f-e...

I thought I could fool myself,
but even I know that's just a trick,
ignoring my own conscience,
well some would just call that
plain sick,
and yes it is,
and yes it was,
The monster I became,
was the monster I....became...
did I ever change?
Did I?

    Regret, blame and mistakes of past life dominates your work, like an ode to the world in which you felt the rot of hell before.thanks for sharing, you are good. (Report) Reply
