Let me Vanish

Let me Vanish

A Poem by Jason Knight
"

You always say you hate to see me hurt, and you hate to see me cry. So all those times that you hurt me, did you close your eyes? (Play melody at bottom)

"

So much pain,

It’s left unsaid,

It’s only offer is not to abstain.

Lies was all I have been fed.

 

I’m hungry and I’m alone,

My soul crumbles and fades,

I’m in the rain, and I have no home,

My being crumbles and fades.

 

There was once life in this heart,

Yet that same life tore me apart

I never knew love or something to cherish,

My soul left alone, and soon it will perish.

 

The color in my world is no longer here,

Happiness is consumed, only leaving fear.

There’s not even a tear,

There’s nothing in this life to hold dear.

 

It’s raining, and I’m on the ground,

No one seems to notice, they only pass around

I lost my grasp of time,

If death is better, I shall call it divine.


But why? Why is it I?

Should I endure this and be spit in the eye!?

I had nothing to call mine!

If I ever smiled, it was something sublime!


I'm nothing, I'm so weak...

I've never been bad, Always so meek...

I'm left in sorrow,

Not even hoping for the light of tomorrow.


Every second I'm here, my soul dies,

Every second I'm alive, I only hear cries,

I have nothing, only unborn desires,

If I held anything, it long ago caught in fire


If I ever smiled it was all so sublime,

I never knew love, never could call it mine.

I never hope, for I have no grasp of time,

Yet I'd rather accept death, if it's something divine.

This is amazing and I can relate to it so closely. The music you chose goes so well with it, too.

the music you choose goes very well with your work. this poem was very well written, the sadness you are overcome with when you read this makes it all the better, I can't wait to read more of your poems.

Nice indeed. I dig the way it all ties together in the end; it's a solid first - person musing.

The poem is amazing. Sometime we do feel invisible. I believe we need to find our place and happiness. You are a writer. Many places where we can feel comfort and contentment. A excellent poem. I like the feel and the emotion in the words.
