What now?

I scream out, yet no one hears.
I try to do good.
I want everyone to go away.
I cannot be here right now.

Nobody wants me here.
No idea why this cuts so deeply.
Nowhere can I go to find refuge,
not but in this page and the will of my pen.

Wishing I could be elsewhere is only that; wishing.
Wanting to savor a kiss I will never receive.
Waiting for a day that may never come.

How do I stand?
Hunting; they look for me like sport.
Hunching over; I hide.
How much longer. I beg.

Why today?
What happens to make this day different.
What can I do to fix it...?

Maybe I do not want to fix it.
Maybe I want them to know how I feel.
Maybe they should experience my pain.
Might-fully I cry out


S ave what I cannot touch, that I cannot keep.
A venge the fallen.
V ictoriously may you rise.
E ven if you want, know that you have what is needed.

M alice will cross your path.
E nd, you shall meet.

I beg for relief.
I shake as if I am a leaf.
Insanity is all that I can keep.

Break me.

Forsake me.

Save me.

Leave me.

Very powerful and not without hope. Which is good. Wonderful wordplay :)

Heavy, as the feel of this is,
but not doomed, in no manner

hopeful, yes

and great in its question

" Nowhere can I go to find refuge,
not but in this page and the will of my pen."

So great
