My Own Misery

My Own Misery

A Poem by Canicus

I thought you were the one...

the one who could pull me from the dark

but I was wrong about you

although you did leave a big mark

 

you started to save me

I thought you were actually aiding

but you just pushed me in further

and watched as I started fading

 

I guess happiness isn't meant for me

and I have to live in agony

might as well stop trying

I'm never going to be free

 

it's all just a game

picking me up then dropping me

flat on my face

not even putting me down carefully

 

I'm not meant to have love

not meant to be happy

no real smiles for me

just to set in my own misery

I've been dropped, too. I thought someone would love me and be able to deal with my craziness and my tendency to push people away. But I made a huge mistake and fell straight on my face. I can relate....great piece...

such sad sombre words and then you hit us with:
"it's all just a game
picking me up then dropping me
flat on my face
not even putting me down carefully'
which left me smiling at the image in my mind...grin..

It is good. I enjoyed the story in this and the way you expressed that, and how there was also a meaning intertwined with it.

Interesting. I really like the flow and sense some disappointment maybe. Keep it up!

Very well written Joshua. Some of us, I'm afraid, are destined to feel that way you describe so well. It's a disease of our times. Writing helps, saves, and cleanses.
