Everyday I Die

Everyday I Die.. I am broken Falling apart Cursed at birth Tortured tied to the windmill of the mind Heart in tatters and ripped apart By evil hand An unwanted orphan Umbilical chord Severed from the world I no longer understand Or want to dwell I a place I know well I go there everyday They call it hell! Stabbed in the front stabbed in the back I v’e reached a dead end street And there’s no way back Tried to span the gaps But fell down the cracks A new mountain to face everyday With a slippery slope With no helping hand Or rope A broken compass I have no direction But down to sweet oblivion Blighted by my own demons And my imperfections Too man knots to untie Thrown in the deep end cannot swim Trying to keep my head above water A lamb ready for the slaughter Never got to F… the parsons daughter Sleep my my only allie I awake he nightmare begins yet again Every single day I die. .

I hope this is fiction my friend. There is certainly one thing that you are blessed with Peter and that is to write talented poetry. A well executed piece of poetry. Great - thank-you for sharing (I'm sure you have many blessings,think of them, list them down, and make a poem. Hugs, Jennifer.

A terrible situation where a person cannot see the light. I love dark poems and often indulged in writing some, but I always put in a ray of hope somewhere. Your poem however, is well written. ~~

Hi Peter, What a sad write; it's almost too hard to read because of the intense sadness, agony, and isolation. No one should feel like. However, I know dire circumstances cause one to feel this way. I hope you will see the rainbow after the storm and find genuine love and acceptance. I wish you well, my dear friend. Ps, If you ever want to talk, I'm here:-) Alexis
