Confusion

I’m confused a lot lately
my head’s pounding in pain
I’m trying to make sense of it
but all my works in vain
people try to help
people try to care
but to heed to everything
that’s too much to bear

do I really want the answers
to really face the truth
that I’m holding on real tight
while losing grip upon my youth
all I want is a friend
to even chance a possibility to betray
all I need is to be loved
the chance to return it the same way

I lay in a pit
try to swallow all that’s said
accept it as the best
take the food my mouth is fed
but I have the chance to choose
and don’t care to choose what’s right
and I’m told to be a fake
to just listen without a fight

I’ve never hated anyone
but one type I must admit
to those who you’d think their good
while inside they had quit
its just a show
its just a play
put on a good costume
and go on your way

in the depths of my mind
I know to choose the true
but doing so is hard and unattractive
to keep it is easy for you
I have the chance now
to party as I wish
and that way of life is catered now
on a large and appetizing dish

do I really want the answers
to really face the truth
that I’m holding on real tight
while losing grip on my youth
all I want is a friend
to even chance a possibility to betray
all I need is to be loved
the chance to return it the same way

  1. Very nicely done! I am an ameture at poetry love it, but kinda scared of it!

    • Thanks. I wrote these years ago- some actually even scare me how intense and morbid I was. But I do see a lot of skill in a lot of them, although I was afraid to post my really good ones. I don’t want people copying them.
