Don't Talk About What You Can't See

Don't Talk About What You Can't See

A Poem by Vin


Dragging my feet as I pull myself out of bed,

looking in the mirror, it's a whole different head.

Feeling the darkness, pulling me down,

wondering why should I bother, if all you do is hurt?

Throwing judgements and bullshit, for all that it's worth.

At some point in time, life will fall apart,

even though you're smiling, I don't have the same heart.

You can be a ray of sunshine, but don't expect me to change,

laugh all you want, it doesn't mean I'll do the same.

I breathe in, and taste the bitter hate,

smother me in labels, to meet my fate.

Not caring about the path that I walk,

all you focus on, is the s**t that you talk.

The weight of my soul, is gathering dust,

you dig at it some more, as if it's a must.

You put down my beliefs and all my ways to cope,

with people like you in the world, it's no wonder I've lost hope.

The cloud deep inside of me, wants me to trip,

if I get the urge to let go, am I allowed to slip?

Twist my words and mangle my mind,

but my empty void is all that you'll find.

So cut me open, and make it deep,

do it slow, and I won't weep.

My faith is long gone, it fell down in the well,

and it's all I had left to survive through this hell.

So don't even try to tell me how to live, when you can't even see,

because I'm the only one who knows what it's like to be me.

I love Music, Photography, Literature and Art although maybe not in that order :S I love to laugh, I think it's the best thing we can do as people and I reckon no one does it enough. It is probably.. more..
