I am lost in the world
And I can not be found
I see nothing but darkness
As I look around
Just a vast empty space
That forever I'm bound
I will scream my lungs raw
But I don't make a sound

Then my head starts to spin
And I fall to the ground
Angrily my fists clench
With a fury they pound
I'm defeated again
Turned back into the clown
Not the type who is happy
No, I wear a frown

Always in my own way
Feels like life's upside down
Forget linear path
This full circle is round
Try to rise up for air
Lake of shame I will drown
If to win you should fail
I'm anointed and crowned
I have a bunch of poems waiting to be posted so I thought I would share one. I'm sorry I haven't been around as of late. Life duties and work have kept me busy. I appreciate the comments and notes and will be responding to everyone very soon. I miss this place and intend on spending more time on here. Until then, thank you to everyone for the support and encouragement on my poetry. I can't wait to read some of the many great pieces you have shared. =^)

You saying all that **** but....
How can you forget about me?
I used to make you laugh at my jokes and I made you happy.
Used to talk about the future and the kids we having.
But now we don’t even talk and I say it sadly....
I lost you and it ain’t fair.
And I know you need me like fire needs air.
And I know you need me, tell me I ain’t wrong
Just reading this prolly got you think we ain’t done.
Pride, mixed with selfish decisions.
Trust issues that I have got me scared of commitment.
And I know I ****** up now I’m sitting here wishin, that you
Reading this poem, give it a chance and just listen.
I know your friends gave me a bad name
But know I missed you like I got bad aim
Happiness was vivid through the conversations
Or was it a lie? Figments of my imagination
Guess being timid is the explanation
Didn't know we had a limit or a expiration
I ain't expecting to get back together
I want you to be happy
wishing that you to do better
Without me,

But I know you need me
I know you want me
you can never leave me

**** I want you to need me **** I need you to want me
But it hurts knowing you don't, **** the feelin is haunting

She sayin....
I don’t need you
I don’t need you
I don’t need you
I don’t need you but I want you
I don’t mean to
I don’t mean to
I don’t mean to
I don’t mean to but I love you.....

i'm the worst at being alone
The greatest at losing everyone

Please don't lie,
yeah it is okay.
I know what I saw,
that look on your face.
And you can't use logic to
There's a point to my knowing,
and that is just the case.
You keep going
at some crazed, lying pace.
Forever unknowing
it isn't okay.
I kept on hoping
You'd see it someday
That look which really scared me away.
some people just are.
oh well.
