half way

on a blank canvas
i begin painting
as one builts 
a great big wall 
So high, 
trapped in myself 
Shut away from life's hurt 

Dreaming of greener pastures 
One with happiness 
Safe in my Dreams, 
An apparition 
of what life 
could offer 
Feeling unworthy 
of a place 
Left with cruel words 

Making one feel 
bad about myself, 
in the reflection 
upon the ripples 
a shattered illusion 
on the surface breaks 

Touched by 
my inner most desire, 
Like a child's
 first steps 
Happy when finding 
one's feet, 
Slowly learning 
to trust your feelings 
Smiling when they come 
back again 

climbing this wall nervously 
Walking to the summit, 
Dreaming of love 
A vision 
of happiness, 
Escaping my prison 

Staring off 
into the stars 
At ease 
with the distance, 
So close, 
yet so far

    Your sadness stands out like a beacon in the night, sometimes I feel like sending you a bit of my happiness, but you do write such lovely poetry. Even when I can't understand it its brilliant to read...Thanks buddy....Peter

    I can really relate to every single word of this poem. I know exactly how you were feeling when you wrote this. I loved it so much that I am adding it to my favorites! Fantastic writing, my friend!...My poem "Sanctum" is similar to this one, if you want to read it sometime.
