The Cracked Foundation

The Cracked Foundation

A Poem by
"

This is a feeling that has been haunting me for a while now.

"
I look up at the midnight sky
And I see no stars above
Cold from the rain shower
And no light left to comfort

Is this the fate I face
With my feelings ignored and beaten
Down into a shallow grave
Do I not deserve love

For we spend our life just searching
For the person we love the most
Why can't my heart find another
One that is warm with comfort

I understand you original feelings towards me
But now I stand here lost
Was I just a temptation you pushed away
Am I like an addictive drug

I'm more like a guy you call
When everyone else ignores you
When you feel shut out in the world
Am I you last resort

I yell here from this roof up high
For I am tired of the suffering
I want my soul to come to me
But it's been slowly shattered

This old run down house
It has been struck by lightning before
Yet it somehow is still standing
After all of the hail damage

I don't need you
I just need somebody
Someone who will accept me!
For who I truly am

I cannot win in these conditions
For you never truly gave me a chance
A story that was deceiving by the cover
Is now the only book I can read

I can't cry anymore rainstorms
It is too much for me
The lightning struck the house one last time
The house fell

it sucks to be a consolation prize, but you shouldn't take it either because you deserve more than that. if you haven't already said something to the person then you should...it's good to get these feelings out. it makes things a little better, doesn't it. because then you can see your situation in perspective.

This is one of the few that I can truly see your feelings. I can feel your vulnerability. I can taste the steel taste of your pain and how much it hurts. I can feel the confusion, it's powerful.
i love it.
