Restrain- Writing this one off the top of my head, see where it goes

Updated on December 27, 2012

Title: Restraint

Restrained and helpless; tape my eyes to see

The beauty of atrocity

Strain out the faith so it will blend with me

Cause hidden virtues are so hard to find

Dowse my self control with pain

An impulse that's too lost to tame

And watch the shadows dance inside my eyes

With moments left; no place to hide

I watch two forces soon collide

Count the time back from ten; cause time has lost it's place

Too lost to know the fake from real

Shadows take my form and wear my face

And I'm feeling further and further away

I'm tangled in a web that's thick

Obscenities the half of it.... and I can only smile

A countdown to a mental stir

I'm getting lost in babbled words

My heart is laced with shades of gray

As poison fills my darkened veins

The scars that trace emotions tip

The hate and dread the half of it

The outer shell to countless cries

All coming to a final sigh

No alibi, no place to be

A dark that feeds on agony

And in these final hours

What's left of me slowly devoured

And I realize I no longer feel like myself...

      I have to agree with Minnetonka twin, this was a a dark emotional piece of art, that winds around the mind drawing you deeper in until you can almost feel every emotion painted before you.

      Beautifully pained poem-your use of words to illustrate the feelings, paint a picture of pure genius. I hit every button except funny.
