Lost among the Living

To be lost among the living
never to be noticed or acknowledged
tears shed,
which no one seems to see?
cries expressed,
which no one seems to hear?
On a day-to-day basis as designed
life moves forward for most
starting with the morning and ending with the night
however,for others,it very nearly ends
with each passing breath
the next could quite possibly
be the breath to end all breaths.


Days and nights pass slowly
almost to the point of stopping
the minds' only thought,
perhaps it would be better to move on
best to leave a world
that creates only sorrow and pain
a world that never lets sunshine in
a world where being outside the norm
is generally frowned upon
never understood or accepted
most assuredly, not welcome.
To be lost among the living
is a most undesirable place to be.

    Hi again james. I didn't think it possible for someone to make this slightly older then younger red head blush but you have. I thinki you have actually read and commented on all my poems or if not, you've made a pretty good stab at it. Now I shall have to get busy this weekend and read your, some titles have already caught my attention but I shall start at the top and work my way down the list. I thank you for your kind words, I shall cherish them always. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Melody?

    The world you describe is very sad, Melody, but it sure does seem this way sometimes. Very intriguing poem! Love, Carolyn

    It must be bad to be that depressed. I hope that things are better. Exercise is good for this condition. Sara
