Lost in the Dark

Updated on January 14, 2015

Broken Light

I am broken no more feelings do I have.

What was once whole in me, is now only half.

Sometimes it is easier than it is to feel.

But sometimes I wonder what it is I am missing.

Is it possible to be happy in a world of Darkness?

Or is that just reaching for a light you can't touch?

I hurt people, which is never my intention.

It starts out good, but eventually it turns opposite.

I know I was not born this way, but ended up this way.

Have I been broken to the point of no return?

Yes, I have tried to change, but in the end it is the same.

Am I lost forever in this Hell of lost light?

Can I reach out and touch it again, without getting burned?

Alas the answer is no.

Stay distant, my salvation.

Stay cold, my reality.

Love, and happiness, are just fantasies.

That is, for someone like me.

      This poem is quite candid and powerful. I, too, hope that glimmer of light shines more for you, than not. Peace, love and good wishes for the New Year.

      Thank you very much Jodah, and Smilealot. If you have scanned my other hubs then you will see that I don't just write about being broken, I have a little bit of everything, 99% of my poems are written over actual things and feelings I have been through. I only write what I know and love sharing so others may know that they are not alone. Peace, love and light to you both! Blesings

      I enjoyed this poem very much even though it is sad and shows a lack of hope. (suggestion: just check the 5th last line). Voted up.
