What I Feel - Poem by Josh Burnett

It comes and it goes
But it staying I don't know
And I always stay alone.
My thoughts freeze up and hold
As I wait by the phone.
Hours on end I stay home.
My feelings turn into stone.
I hear the wind moan
As my words are blown
To never be shown.

I bend on knees praying
My emotions aren't playing
But it's clear what they're saying
My heart is breaking.
I try to sleep but keep waking
And maybe it's a mistake to keep waiting
As they all begin taking
And my love begins hating.

My heart beats faster
And my life becomes a disaster
Because I know
That I am no longer the puppet master.

The impression of hope is no longer there to be
So I can no longer see
As we get locked up
To no longer be free
And doubt screams
Like an unwanted banshee.
The smile that I use to wear
Is no guarantee.
