Forever Doesn't Last, Never Has An End

Updated on October 6, 2010

There will be darkness...But there is also light.

Don't Forget to See the Light in Tomorrow

I close my eyes to disappear,
to escape from my world & no longer feel.
It doesn't work-not this way;
it doesn't stop the feel of my pain.


I open my eyes to an empty space.
The rooms have been empty many long dark days.
I'm lost in my thoughts- I never meant to become this way.
I stop to listen but I can’t understand what they all say.


Someone walks in-I’m made to give in.
I’m told that this is all life & it’s all in my head.


Pull myself together,
They don't care if I fall apart.
As long as I keep going,
Who truly cares if I still have my heart?


No one sees, no one notices,
No one ever really cares;
that when life becomes like this,
Everyday is a new nightmare.


I close my eyes to disappear.
I pray for tomorrow-I pray for no fear.
It doesn't work-not this way.
Even I am lost to find out my real name.


I make believe that this is all real.
I pretend tonight that this is how it is to feel.
I apologize to everyone, it is not their fault.
This is my problem-one I struggle to resolve.


Just because this feels like an illusion,
it does not mean it can not be real.
Because when I feel love,
I know it is the love that I feel.


Here we go again;
I'm off in my mind.
When I catch my grip,
it’s me that I shall find.


Forever doesn't last,
never has an end.
I see the light in tomorrow,
I can tell it’s not pretend.


Feel my touch upon you,
don’t hold your breath.
I'll catch mine in the morning,
tonight we need our rest.

      We are transpose into your world and we feel the pain and emotion that you have artfully woven into your poem. Your poetry takes the reader beyond the threshold of the written words

      So nicely put down, emotions can appear at a moments notice and unsuspecting yet still there for us to lay our heart bare for the world to see. Inspiration comes in flashes and we can't waste a minute to find the closest pen to put it to paper or keyboard.

      You have showed us once again H.C. how human you really are and it's nice to see you back with your passion. Peace and hugs.

      HC, I absolutely am in love with this poem. I can't relate better to anything else. The first few lines caught my attention and i just dove right into it sinking deeper and deeper. Just when i got into the grove of emotions you described along with the thoughts you hit me with those amazing last four lines about catching your breath in the morning. Wonderful job I always love reading your new stuff.

      Mike, Thank you, I am not too sure how I should respond to such a compliment. It has taken me a very long time to understand myself and really look at myself, emotions, thoughts and study each to achieve what self awareness I possess. Some days, I struggle-but most, I am fairly in-tune with and try to express each unique emotion with honesty---I am glad that you see this in my writing and appreciate it. Thanks so much for the comment, I am truly honored sir :)

      You have an amazing self-awareness that allows you to articulate your feelings with such clarity and depth. I hope the day comes when you apologize to no one for your feelings, whether they match the "reality" of others or not. In the meantime, thanks for your words of wisdom and hope.

      Thank you so much- I am glad you liked it. I wrote it in my 'Notes' on my cell phone, in the middle of an emotional spell of a moment. I feel so honored to receive such a beautiful compliment, and am not sure how deserving I am of it-but flattered none the less. So dont cry Ms Kimberly-you'll make me cry and then I will have black mascara running down my face (Water-Proof my butt) and what a mess that will be :)

      love ya girl :)

      Hi Hon

      Truthfully this is either the best poem I have read or the truest form of truth I have known.

      Either way, it rocks! And I am trying to avoid filled up watery eyes to a full blown snotty cry. Your incredible ability to define such emotional truth is a talent not learned, but has to already be there,

      Thank you, obviously saving this one too!

      bless
