Am I alone

I hate how I look
My life is a book
Page after page
I am still full of rage
I sit here alone
No one answers the phone
No one to listen
I am stuck here missing
I wish someone would care
Or at least recognize that I am here
I am not invisible but I feel unseen
Does anybody out there no what I mean
I talk to myself because I am always here
Sick of whining sick of shedding tears
I am tired of helping others who don’t appreciate
Damn tired of all those who choose to hate
Who I am and where I been in the past
So sick of nice guys finishing last
I take it out on my girl even though she loves me so much
I am afraid my illness will slowly crush
All feeling she has deep in her heart
But I will continue to fight with all that I got
I never gave up although once I gave in
But I couldn’t accomplish the ultimate sin
I took pills and woke up full of regret
And till this day I will never forget
Where I been and the road I traveled
I am losing control of my lifelong battle 
Just want someone to listen so I can stand free
Is there anybody out there feeling like me
I wake up weaker than the day before
But the baby is screaming he needs more
Time I don’t have to share all day
I wish I had time to sit and play
But instead I am stuck in the sink
Dish after dish I continue to think
Why me and why has no one noticed the change
Can’t they see my life is starting to rearrange
So much to get done yet no ****ing time
Sick of being here trying to produce a rhyme
Why do I vent to paper page after page
Because the ****ing paper filters my rage
Because it seems like I am talking to myself
When al I am looking for is help
I am not crazy just misunderstood
Why can’t the feelings that I do have always be good

    It is a very moving and special poem...if you get a chance read "The Penny" and "Rebound". You may have to scroll down a bit. You will realize you are definetly not alone...much we have in common...Thanks for your comment..Holly Moore
