A Poem by JL Jacobs
"

A poem about someone feeling lost and alone, no longer able to cope.

"

You look right into my eyes

you think you see

but trust me

I'm already gone.


Who you see

and used to know

keep the memories

I'm already gone.


I tried my best

did what I could

I've been so broken

I'm already gone. 


Where were you

I needed you

now it's too late

I'm already gone.


The emptiness inside

the shell of me

remains inanimate

I'm already gone.


You cry tears for my loss

I have you beat

I've cried more for myself

I'm already gone.


Alive, not quite living

a broken body

wasting space

I'm already gone.


I tried to hang on

no one was there

to catch my fall

I'm already gone.


The pain has broken 

every single piece of me

physical and emotional

I'm already gone.


I wanted to try

losing hope by the second

after many years

I'm already gone. 


My ghost is left

not a beating heart

how can you see me 

I'm already gone.

When the love is murdered. No place to go except the door and run like hell.
"My ghost is left
not a beating heart
how can you see me
I'm already gone."
I have been on both sides. Better to run than dig up the graves of the past. Thank you for sharing outstanding poetry.

Relating so deeply with these words having encountered a similar situation during Christmas last. You've captured the helplessness so perfectly and the feeling of "where the f**k were you??" resonates like thunder inside me. To anyone who hasn't experienced this, no explanation will describe it. To anyone who had, no explanation is needed. Can i get a "HELL YEAH!"?

This piece weighed heavy on my heart as I read this. This feeling you describe I have seen in a very good friend and it hurts to think about who they have become. So many things can affect someone's life and sadly in this case, it was not changed in a good way. Very nice JL.
