Unfocused

Post by Eric » Tue Jun 11, 2013 11:12 am

Having trouble, thinking out loud, trying to find my ground
I am not sure, I do not think, I am liking what i found
I live with so much worry, I still cry alone at night
I just can't get a grasp on it, I feel I am fighting the same fight
I dig so deep, I scream out loud, I need to find that thoughtless void
But images that flash with in, are of the things I have destroyed
I don't know if I will get past this mess, I need to in a hurry
I try so hard to get my focus, But everything is blurry
All these thoughts they make me think, and soon I turn to write
But in these thoughts I have found, the things I do incite
I don't want to write no more, for I am burdened by this curse
I no longer want to feel such pain, I fear to re sight another verse
The words I chose to pour it out, they still linger in my mind
What I wished I would achieve, so harshly had been declined
The emotions that I am feeling now, as I translate them for this write
What this has been and it has done, it have brought on such contrite
