Cerebral Island

Cerebral Island

A Poem by Alexis L. Thompson

I am alone.
Lost and forgotten.

I am scared
I'm not going to make it.

How do I know
how to survive

when all I've known
is to listen and sit?

Behind a desk
and within the walls

I sit and I stare
but I am gone.

And nobody sees
or nobody cares.

I've sat on my shipwreck
far, far too long.

But I have no choice
but to sit here and try.

To do better for me
and where I've been.

To think and to find
myself in the place.

The place that I'm left
on this Cerebral Island.

Well, I am 22 and I have a passionate, open relationship with poetry. lately i haven't written much. life catches up to you and you just don't seem to get a chance. so many things to write about , no.. more..
