lonliness and camel crickets

lonliness and camel crickets

A Poem by w

Sometimes I feel alone
even when your arms
are wrapped tightly
around me.

Sometimes I feel unwanted
even when your lips
are pressed against mine
and you whisper
"I love you".

There are times
when the only thing
that will do
are my arms
wrapped
around me
and even then
I still feel
trapped.

There are times
when I can do
nothing at all
to "turn that
frown upside down",

because that frown is my face,
my passive face
my face I forget to take off
when I am out in the world,
it is my face for you,
it is my face for me,
it is what I have
and all that I have
means I can give no more.

Yes dear.
It is a self thing entirely...this poem envoked a sense of depression and helplessness. The descriptions betrayed the subject, an amazing write. Your feelings well written.

I climb inside my mind through the windows to the soul that I sold for a kiss in the fourth grade. I write about the adventures I have in my schizophrenic mind and the scars that my past has left. .. more..
