I’m shutting out the world today
As reality rears its head
A venomous slice of life, I’m fading
Far into the red, land of the dead

We can’t get a handle on the life we’re living
We never talk long enough to see
And though I want to paint a pretty picture
That picture won’t include me

Four walls as a frame I’m hanging
Life within the cage
And though I want to paint a pretty picture
I’m not included on the page

Shadows on the wall I’m watching
Of someone I can’t see
I can’t place the face and it’s hard to erase
The torment inside of me…

    I know there is a glimmer, a spark of light where darkness lies.. I feel a sigh, as so deeply you write... Can't say I haven't had some of these feelings in my lifetime, but I am glad they are past me. I could relate to some of your expressions.. Know that when people let you down, and get under your skin.. God, The Great I Am is promised to Always Be There... reach out, and the gift of such awesome love lives through faith especially for you.(sorry, got carried away) Cindy Lu

    This is a great poem. The pictures that we paint in our mind are totally different then the ones that life paints for us. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    reminds me of my middle and high school years. Never completely give in to the darkness, there's always hope! :)
