Deciding When

Never thought that I would feel this way
I just need to make a getaway
It just seems more futile every day
Don't think I'll be back again
Sometimes I want to scream out loud
Feel all alone within a crowd
Say a prayer with my head bowed
To free me from this den
Looking back on all my wasted years
Spent the sunshine and saved the tears
There's a time that you must face your fears
The trouble is deciding when
Every day I seem more lost
Guess I underestimated all the cost
Never worried how the dice were tossed
Always rolled with the flow
Built my castle on shifting sand
I'm a stranger in my own land
Watch it all slip from my hand
How it will end I just don't know
I look to heaven and I wonder why
Should have made it but I didn't try
Memories fade away as time goes by
Time has never moved too slow

    Vince, The melancholy you write with in this poem is pure slow burning power which makes my heart smile at its beauty but at the same time making it want to cry. You managed to write amazingly how it feels to be like this, thank you for writing this. Kyle

    Many thoughts I can relate to here, Vince. On that poem of mine you just saw, it's not one I am too proud of, but had to whip up something!!
