Limbo

I thought limbo was where I wanted to be.
It was calm and quiet,
Everything I was looking for
Was in that one place.

So I went there.
But now I think;
I stayed too long.
I've forgotten
How to get back into life
Beyond just work and home

How to pay bills,
How to build and grow.
Maybe, the truth is
I never intended to leave
Just, I could never
admit to myself

I stopped wasting my ears
On words I no longer needed to hear
I know I have this problem
But I've forgotten how to heal.
Lost inside this Limbo

Begging just to feel
The calm and quiet seep
The emotion from within.
I didn't realize this place
Was not my friend.

Life hurt so much I ran
Found this place inside
A gap between worlds.
Perfect place to hide....

All that stillness was
Fine, unti I faded too,
motionless
Inside this place
Contently numb in all the
Right ways.

All the wrong ones too...
One by one they all seeped
Out into that endless night
Every care and worry alike
Leaving me so light
So empty..

Adrift inside my lonely.
 
I thought limbo was where
I wanted to be,
but now I'm fighting
just to be free

We want to disconnect from people and the world because we are overwhelmed with society's ills and when we do, somehow we disconnect for ourselves. I guess we are made to commune with one another. Perhaps we should regulate how, who, when, where, and why we do this.

Your poetry is very good. I enjoyed it. It is very thought provoking.

Maybe we all live in limbo. Waiting for things to get better. I like this.
