Old News

A Poem by Ed

a poem about people doubting


no ones by my side
all the energy I needed was

 written in black and white
memories throwing stones

 at me

 my story I could write

Didn't think I'd make a mess of things
weight of the scales,


What was didn't work anymore

 past certain lock doors.

with the direction my life taking

Didn't want life behind the glass.

The stage faded

 and for a moment so did the past

Can I still taste the tears I had

To clear my eyes I realized

a debt to pay.

past nothing special

past nothing new

the corruption of my life

never I could.

Echo of words

Of all the times I was told

learn something worth while

than whats leaves me

Empty with holes


ways that only ended with pain

From this I learned

and made it out

of what remains

to this day

 old news.

maybe I'll learn something more than being vain
something new
besides pain.
I liked these lines. You really express your emotions well.
