I wrote this poem the other day in Accounting class, judging my the subject matter it obviously wasn't a very bright lesson for me. It's the firstfull-length poem I've ever written for something other than a school assignment .. I'm only just getting into the whole writing thing, so hopefully it's a keeper. Here it is:
~ Disconnected ~
Trapped in a downward spiral
The first step was the worst
At first you brought me happiness
Now your blessing is my curse
When every waking moment feels like a struggle
Can't keep my sanity in check
You push and pull me from the vague reality
Force me to take the next step
All it took was a leap of faith
Into the depths of the unknown
Come springing back when I hear your voice
Crave the time when I could say "I'm not alone"
Your presence fills the air with toxic comfort
I can't catch a breath
Cause when I breathe, i breathe you in
It's a slow yet inevitable death
Seeking refuge in the arms of the "enemy"
But it's just too little too late
Without you I'm lost in this self-induced coma
I hate the life you helped me create
And there you have it! Please crit, even if you totally bash it! More to come soon ..
hey there girl, long time no talk! that's really awesome! and isn't the greatest feeling ever when you finish your first song?
I think it is really good, hopefully you'll find the perfect matching song for that ^-^
