Nothing Adds Up

Taking it all away Drowning in a contact list Burrowing in a zone of friends Never felt so alone within a crowd Never heard my conscious Screaming so loud Burning guilt spews like a broken fountain I live in a lie I have made the truth Where sheer emptiness fills me Where darkness lightens me Into complete numb I will never feel the same We will never mend just the way you want Nothing adds up to your delight I will never have the courage I feel the ache take its toll And like I have known it all along The pain of truth always remains I can hide. . . I can claim sane I could lie . . . and say it will always be the same Nothing adds up I am positively stuck But somehow I learn not to care Like the lie living in truth, My cares lie deeply folded beneath It lingers and hates itself Nothing truly adds up Except the pain of truth -March 21, 2013-

    You are always so deep and contemplative. Everything you write seems to have strong feeling...enjoyed
