Always on my mind

Dear Id, Once again, I find my mind making the same journey into your deepest ocean of questions I can never fathom. So many times I've told myself it's such a complete waste of time to even cast my cares upon your unyielding waters. I have been utterly lost for days at a time trying to find my way back through the labyrinth of my mind. The air feels heavy and breathing has nothing to do with want or desire. For as long as I can remember, my reflection has been as an ever evolving meaningless Rorschach. No identifiable constants, just a tangled mess of emotion with a gaping hole of disappointment in the life experience. I ask myself, "Is this it?" The overwhelming outpouring of human pretentiousness and superficiality leaves me dying of starvation for anything real! Will it even matter? How can I miss something I've never known and be so instinctually convinced there is more? Enlighten me! Truly, Frustrated and Unfulfilled

Oh, my such frustration voiced here. Well, just writing of it is so helpful and I love your descriptiveness.

Hi Andrea, thanks for stopping by. It is a truly sad state of mind, funny how everyone assumes that it's MY state of mind! I'm starting to get the feeling I've committed "poetic peer suicide" writing this. I believe poetry should include all the struggles life, not just mine.

Jeannie this is sad. A life without purpose and disappointment. Something is missing maybe love?

I identified with dear I'd. Its hard for me to get some clever meanings so I'm a little unsure if I missed the twist. If there is one. I'm having a difficult time n s navigating poem soup too. I can't find the front page, or maybe I did? I was on there? Couldn't find it. Don't know who to ask.

Hi Dean, it took me a while to figure out how to navigate as well. I'm always accessing on my phone so I finally figured out to turn the phone landscape to make the menu accessible to navigate. Hope that helps!
