Sorrowful Bliss - Poem by Bradley Lomeli

How did I get to be like this,
The pain I have you just dismiss,
Acceptance is all that I ever wished,
But inside I'm dying of a lonesome bliss,

The pain I feel I can't describe,
The support I need you don't provide,
Inside my soul is burned alive,
From the womb my sorrows derived,

Do you know what it's like to never shine,
For every breath to be a crime,
To be an actor all the time,
Making the world believe your fine,

To hide your being with a mask,
Trying to complete an impossible task,
I am like some painted glass,
My smiles held by an invisible cast,

What's the point to hope for help,
No one cares about the agony I've felt,
It matters not if my smile melts,
It's too late the damage is dealt,

My mirror refuses to show my face,
For in this world I have no place,
I don't want to live this lie,
I yearn to hear death's lullaby,

Was a hand to much to lend,
Is my soul to broke to mend,
All I wanted was to have a friend,
Or at least this dreadful pain to end,

Tonight the clouds above are shy,
Tonight I tell the stars goodbye,
Graceful ocean please hear my plea,
Pleas hold my body beneath your sea.
