Somewhere I Belong? lonely, confused and sad, it feels as if i was just a shadow of the day, in light i exist and in darkness, i am gone! what am i searching for? when i have nothing else to search for! surrounded by all sides, i try my best to survive, but

The Curse far away in the distant horizon, the sun slowly starts to set and makes way for the dark, moonless night; the wind gently gathers pace and starts to howl, awakening the demons within and outside, rousing them from their day-long slumber; as i look in the mirror, the pain surges

Stars in the Dark Alone i sit, reminiscing about the past, stuck in the present and wondering what the future has in store for me! i have been on this road before, many times, all alone and none to care for, but now things are different, things have changed; walking the line between sanity

White Flag i stare into this crazy world, waving a small white flag, hoping to find a truce to this madness, that is life; i wonder how can i be sane when my mind is constantly occupied by a barrage of things that life seems to be throwing at me, nonstop! i

Lonely Emotions as the night goes by, i sit here, infront of the computer, sleepless, disturbed and staring into a blackhole; mumbling and thinking something, wondering why, wondering how, is life meant to be so confusing? wishing for something, that will shine a light at the darkness, i stumble through this world;

Acceptance As i watched, a boy tripped and fell, many laughed, few got up to help, i remained emotionless; A girl, as beautiful as the moon, a girl who had all the boys running behind her, looked at me and smiled, i looked at her expressionless; as i watched the world

Prisoner of Emotions Its all a bit of mystery, a time of happiness, a fear of the unknown, bobbling up and down in the sea of life; in a room full of emptiness, i am lost, searching for something, i do not know, searching for something, that is already within; confused, tensed, happy,

Battle of Life for too many years, i watched as life tossed me here and there, up and down; i told myself, it is all a game, one minute i might seem to be a winner, and the next i might finish as the runner-up; spinning, turning, tumbling, tossed up in air, kicked

18th Avenue Pictures, pictures, f****** pictures, pictures of you at holidays, with your family, pictures of you at the shoreline, with your friends, pictures of vacations, in your car, pictures of your face; scattered like ashes everywhere around this country without me; You showed me all these pictures of you without me;

Colors of Life It’s a rat race the whole thing this whole thing we call life; sometimes I laugh I lay down in the space, I call my room, close my eyes and see different colors explode under my eyelids; like fireworks each of them representing another thought another worry another something to

Chasing Shadows I’m outside, sitting, sipping the cheapest beer I could buy thinking of things to write down different ways I can matter to feel important different women whom I’ve loved and made love to whom have left or phone me every now and again either way left. I’m outside sitting thinking

Raindrops here i am – happy and sad, lonely and confused, my life’s boring phase has just started, i am almost there yet i am not even close; as i put my face against the window, sitting and watching the dark, pregnant clouds, it feels as though the skies are shedding

Survive Looking out of the window, as the sun slowly hides beneath the horizon, the darkness creeps and crawls its way upon the land; i have been waiting for years, haunted by memories, going round and round, in this vicious circle of life; as the music fades away, i look around

Tree of Life A feeling of emptiness, amidst laugher and joy, it feels so hollow; deep down inside, as my mind drifts away to a world full of dreams and unimaginable possibilites; as i stare listlessly into this matrix, the beating of my heart reverberates through my soul, emotions trying to take control

The War Within I am supposed to be happy, on the brink of something new, exciting and life changing, a moment of unprecedented magnitude; but here i am sulking, sad, angry and confused, it’s as if happiness and sadness are waging a pitched battle in my mind; i sat watching, numb, cold and

You, Me and Us walking up and down the corridor, waiting for you, i begin to realize how much i love you! together in happiness and sorrow, through the rain and the sun, holding hands together, we walked the earth; my heart starts pounding everytime you come near, and as i look into those

Confused sitting in the room, thinking about everything so far, i am beginning to wonder if life is supposed to be like this; high on a pedestal one day, kissing the dirt the next, the balance keeps tilting from the good to the bad; nobody said life would be easy and
