Reaching to you

Updated on August 29, 2016

Reaching out to you

The whispers in my head grow into a scream

Walking broken ground nothing is as it seems

Where to go when left the shadow of a former time

All the pitfalls coming; just another thing to climb

Offering the best of me; Still half of what we need

The inner battle tangles; as emotions bleed

Pressed into the corner as time invades my will

As the fight that’s in me goes limp and lays still

Cause I just forget what its like to be me

A set of eyes with a list to tie all the broken dreams

Cause when you can’t give what you can’t become you slowly start to see

Yourself- Reflection, your own worst enemy

So I look to the ground as my heart begins to pound

And I feel a bit of life just let itself go

Yet I’m still here reaching out to you

Just waiting in a silence for tomorrow to show.

Should I rhyme less or keep it in the style it is?

      Wow, that makes it even more powerful. I just read it again. See you again soon.

      This is one of my most heartfelt poems on account that the target of the poem was myself. Thank you for your encouraging words.

      Beautifully written, sadness and desperation felt. Stay true to your developing style as you try different things. Voted up.
