Never Ending Cries For Help

Updated on March 4, 2011

Awkward Silences Remain. 
Depleted Perfection. 
Reasons Can Never Be Known.

N one of us are
E ver safe from the truth
V arious masks unveiled 
E veryone falls victim
R ebel, or be swept away

E ntertaining ideas of
N eglect and
D iscouraging the use of
I nstincts. Living life…
N ever realizing the 
G ood inside each other

C ompromise for me
R espect my humanity
I nside us all
E mptiness and fear
S ymptoms of the Fall

F aithful meet
O pposition
R eaping the world
    G I V E   M E   F A T H E R,  
    I   H A V E   S I N N E D.
    G E T   N O T   M Y   H E A R T.

An aura of chaos.
Disorder walks among us. 
Space without direction. 
Building defenses.
Hiding daylight. 
A storm approaches. 
Static air. 
A distant Monster. 
Flickering sky.
The dead are living. 
The living are dying. 
I strive for an answer. 
But I know I’ll die trying


This was originally done on paper, as a creative writing piece, combined with artistic design. The words were laid out in a fashion very similar to the way it appears here. It was one of my most unique and different ideas.

      The resounding conflict between the believer an his self, the need for absolution, you have captured it beautifully.

      Relying on instinct takes maturity,though simply to breath before a thought or action is the instinct that anyone needs can rely on and is often forgotten,as stated in this authentically creative verse,BenWritings.;)

      Wayne thanks, I have read 4-5 of yours and already greatly look up to your talent.

      Yeah, this was a very different concept for me, and I liked the way it turned out. I have always had a fascination for rabbit trails.

      The concept of branching out multiple paths/ideas from a common starting point.

      I have another one of these, on paper, that leads into possibly hundreds of different directions. Way too complex to post online.

      Thanks again and I hope you read more of my poems
