Nemesis Times Me

Nemesis Times Me

A Poem by LizBot3
"

A poem about the never ending battle between who i am and who my mind tells me i am.

"

We travel miles to glimpse inside
We search forever to try to find
The only one you'll never know, never reach, even though
It never leaves, you cant unhear, you cannot fight, it's never clear
Most beautiful daydream and the terror in my sleep
A concept most confusing, it's answers buried deep
Friendly little enemy and all my fears combined
The reason I am broken, is my own dreadful mind

It locks me into nothing and says I cant escape
I stay, silently crying bound in non existant tape
It manipulates my logic and robs me of my will
My love, my laugh and living are now missing all their thrill

Over come with worry and beaten down by fear
Confidence cant find me but my doubt is always near
I want to get to know me, why i think the way i do
But i just cant seem to find me, im not in any corner, or any avenue
Do I carry on like always, big fake smile and off I go
Or do I carry on like always searching, trying, even though
This never ending battle cuts me deep beyond repair
And when I think im winning I was wrong, it wasnt there

Please closed off mind, open up for me
Let in the sun, I want to be
Filled with light and worry free
Untie these binds and let me be me.

This poem is the voice of defeat; "It locks me into nothing an says I can't escape. I stay, silently crying bound in on existant tape. It manipulates my logic and robs me of my will.My love, my laugh and living are now missing all their thrill."
I agree the greatest battles people deal with are within our own intellect and really it is a moral battle. So our hearts are the battle field it seems to me; "Please closed off mind, open up for me. Let in the sun, I want to be filled with light and worry free. Untie these bonds and let me be."
Bless your life and writing.
