The wanderer

The wanderer

A Poem by Wraith.

I'm not inside my head
I cannot reach within
left alone to wander here
caged in bone and skin
to find yourself reflected
in an empty gaze
where the body is neglected
trapped in a mental maze
Between mind and flesh
Somewhere I find myself
no trace of life nor death
trivialities like wealth 
impending doom I feel
as I journey through the black
immortal against my will
yet never to turn back
A vacant mind existing 
soul extends beyond the brain
plague incapable of lifting
no sign of what is sane
A wraith within myself 
tormented forevermore
I can't call for death
endless flesh corridor
Tormented by silence
as I trudge through the abyss
No mark of age is noted here
the same cycles to begin
unless this wretched curse
is killed off by waiting death
I am still here wandering
the only one whos left.

Great stoke of the pen (or keyboard). It posses a wonderful rhythm and speaks to my own torment trapped inside my body and head. What jailer sentences us to this prison? A spelling error or two: fourth line "bone an skin" did you mean "and" or "an' ?" And third line from the end "is killed of by waiting death" The "of by" makes me stumble, but either word alone reads well. Really like it, you did a lovely job!
