I’m lost again
In the archives of my mind
Trying to just unwind
Forget about it all
The failure and the fall
No longer relevant
But how I do repent
Every sin I’ve ever made
Don’t think I can be saved
My life consumes me whole
I no longer have a goal
Just stuck here in limbo

Lost Souls

June 21, 2015

It takes so long
To find what’s wrong
I seek for you
I know it’s true
But search for what
Another dark rut
An empty mind
No time to unwind
Just sorrow anew
No change in view
Dark comes from light
Not from out of sight
For every pure find
There are twice the unkind

What to Do

June 15, 2015

I never knew
What to say
I never knew
What to do
I never knew
If you were okay
I never knew
If I should care
I never knew
What I wanted
I never knew
What to be
I never knew
The best for you
I never know
What to do.

Never any good

March 22, 2015

I’ve never been good
At expressing myself.
Emotions spill out
And role off the shelf.

I’ve never been good
At understanding others.
It’s challenged me
To empathise with my brother.

I’ve never been good
At feeling like me.
I live in fear
Of what you’ll all see.

I’ve never been good
At much of anything.
Feeling empty
Can really sting.

Was it all Okay?

These long days
Eat away all the time
I should have spent
Nurturing the new
Working the old
And reliving
The mistakes
That make me
Who I’ve become
I always forget
To look back and reflect
On why I’ve made it here.
Is it just me
Or is it my fear
Stopping me from moving.
I’ve done so much
Yet think so low
Of what I’ve accomplished
I keep claiming fraud
And feeling fake
For the things I just love doing
The more I try
The less I know
And longer I sit in tandem
Unsure of up or down
Which direction do I move
As life keeps sliding along
Day in and out
I just want to shout
But it just slides on by
Without ever knowing where I am
I wish I knew
I wish I grew
But it’ll just never happen
Full of regrets; full of mistakes
But things just gotta happen
Eventually I’ll find
Some peace of mind
And know it was all ok.

Breathless like a fish
Drowning in information
Trapped like a tiger
Wanting to be free
Lost like a lark
Flown astray
Dead like the damned
There is no other way

I thought 140
Was the worst
It could get.
Turns out
One click
And two letters
Is all
The kids need
These days
To feel
