Nobody...(The Enemy)

Nobody...(The Enemy)

A Poem by Stormy

simply thoughts...hope u enjoy



Nobody hears when my soul cries
Drenched spirit, dry eyes
Head high, soul low
Smiling hard, but no glow
Nobody feels when my heart hurts
When happiness converts
And sadness occurs
Turning all of my dreams into blurs
No one wants to understand…
Nor do they feel the need to
Look into my eyes and see who…
I really am…
I myself have lost my own identity for so long
My body no longer feels like home 
Just a shell…with empty spirits
A place where loneliness often visits
Vacationing in my pain…
Bathing in my sorrow
Fertilized from my tears of rain
Blooming into my tomorrows
Leaving me lost in a jungle of insecurities
Wishing and praying for God’s purities
As well as direction…protection
I stand at the intersection
Lost between stop and go
I coast along life’s paths slow
Confused as well as confined
Prisoner of self…soul doing time
Because nobody offered a hand or a little bit of understanding
In this life of mine that’s so demanding
Commanding all of my thoughts…all of my dignity
Turning me against myself…I stand as the enemy

Very well and cleverly written. I'm sure sometimes we all feel like we are all alone when a problem arises...even when we have the hand of a loved one. This poem was very beautiful. Your work is excellent!

A very hearfelt poem that i did enjoy. I truly understand addiction and the dark place it brings us.
I felt the blaming of others for not understanding or offering a hand but in the end you break it down
and see that only you are 'the enemy'. I really like your description of 'A place where loneliness often visits', and these ensuing lines are great,
'Vacationing in my pain...
Bathing in my sorrow
Fertilized from my tears of rain
Blooming into my tomorrows'
Keep up the good writing as an outlet as you say.

This was a great poem, but some of the rhyming words seemed slightly... forced, I could say. Also, there was a bit of a beat, but it was broken by long/short scentences. All in all, it was awesome. Keep it up!

Very well written, great flow, enjoyed every line of it! Check out my poem titled "Conflicting Thoughts", you may find uncanny similarities. Take care.
