Lost Control

Written by: M. E. Hathcock

no physical pain can match the pain in the 
soul
failing the one and only task
mentally tortured day after today
this mind is a burden that must be bore
thoughts free flowing like a raging river
continuing ever so endlessly down the 
same path
will the source of this pain ever be 
changed
the river cuts deeper and deeper trail
as time goes the side of the thinks is lost
current forcing further to places on know
reaching for something just to hold on
nothing strong enough to hold drifting 
further along
treading water arms are begining to tire
hoping someone will reach down with a 
helping hand
some just ignore and some watch until the 
distance is too great
struggling and alone is how this will end
without love the future looks bleak
