The Fear of loneliness : I am My worse Enemy

The fear of being rejected by my own scares me out of my skin

Thedread of having a knife crash your dreams of fitting in

But I know this feeling by name and my face

For I have so long endured it in this mad race

And I am terrified to die on my own

Living on the sideline like Satan’s spawn

So the loneliness makes my heart quiver and moan

Doomed to drift with only a shadow for a consort

In this jungle of civilization that knows no hope

How can a wavering heart find in the dark comfort?

How is my scarred heart supposed to cast away the rope?

As life mocks my attempts to find a place to call home

As we drift aimlessly within this endless life of storm

Sometimes I wither inside that treacherous head of mine

As the emptiness digs through my bones into my spine

A foreigner to the world and to myself

And life cast my happiness like an item on a shelf

I have felt so empty like a wandering soul

Yet heat was never attained to fill that hole

Forgotten, and invisible to the world I have walked

And no matter where I go, by the emptiness I am stalked

Now sinking into the disdain of false hope and empty promises

And as time passes by I hate the person that the world despises

That person is me, an entity lost yet never found

A person who can never make anyone proud

~Me~

You say I am my worst enemy

And that I deserve no mercy

Cast to drift aimlessly in a world that knows no mercy

A world so superficial that it overvalues beauty

A foreigner to the world, masked and forever silenced

With a heart of stone in a barren land that was fenced

Sinking into the oblivion of the empty world drifting past hope and life

This is the person you came to create, a person whom I myself despise

Absolutely AMAZING, again!

Truly heart wrenching! Emotional, powerful...WOW

You are just the best at this kind of poem. Your pictures are wonderful too...this just hit me hard. I can't say enough about the strength of those words.

I have recently become a huge fan.

Also, 2 other things:

1. I looked up that song, and I remember it clearly from watching the show...it's so incredibly sad and beautiful. That show is so awesome...

2. My latest poem ( Forget me tonight and forever ) I think would really be your cup of tea so please check it out :]

up/awesome/beautiful

they really need like...a x10 button

BenWritings,

i didn't except someone to post a comment at this rate. {but inside my little treacherous head of mine i was hoping someone would}. Anyway, i am really glad to have you stop by :) Sometimes hubbers get fed up with all the dark poetry as if portraying the Golden rule in Economics [law of diminishing marginal utility :D] but i guess i write for myself to vent. I really thank you for your support :D

Reply on Two things :D

1- one of the saddest piano+ violin you could ever find. Still i am searching for other pieces to listen to while writing. Any reccomendations?

2- i will for sure check your poems. I kind of live on your profile lately :D So i am also a very happy and faithful fan of yours:D

Wow, really? You spend that much time on my page? That's wonderful...

By the way, you asked about a song to write to...how bout the one on my latest poem? That song brings me to near tears every time, especially when I remember the story it went with (FFX)

Anime/Japanese music and stories are simply the highest level of emotional connection possible.

Final Fantasy, Bleach, Legend of the Dragoon, DBZ...they all are such a huge part of me, to the core.

I'm glad we share that

yeh i am glad we share that too...i believe Japanese are one of the most successful people in portraying emotions through their animation. i think you might like this one,it contains devil may cry [which is one of my favorite after God of war] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PM-xAyuqEdg and i hope you enjoy the track as well.

Hoping to read more of your work :D

What's sick about the video:P and we can censor what needs to be censored :P i certainly love the game btw

@ralwus : Well sometimes the cup of endurance just overflows. JUst like a river it might wreck your world but i let if overflow on paper rather than let it wreck my world. SOmetimes writing is a blessing and on other occasions it makes you feel the suffering of the whole world Just like Atlas carrying the globe on his back.

btw I am 19 now and life is pretty fair with its ups and downs. Challenging but worth living every single moment :D

NIkki yes perhaps we just need company to fend off those little demons that lurk deep inside :P [sorry for being to dark but i am listening to this metla song that says "i see little demons running through my head]

I came back and read this again, and recalled just how AMAZING THIS IS. I feel like this should be turned into a legendary anime song

the lyrics are unforgettable, it's a masterpiece, it truly is

Lol. HubGod loves gloomy and dark, didn't you know? If you check around Hubs and several forums, many people becomes gloomy and angry these days and several had say goodbye to the community because what HubGod did. So I guess, you will be fine.

PS: You can borrow my hand if you want to scratch your head. My cat wouldn't mind. She had gave me so much bruises as proof of her opinion on that one. "Too much tickles, you silly woman!" She said. hahaha
