How rude

Success in my hand
The power and the glory

On top of the world
I am invincible; me

The little ones left 
by the wayside without care

I take what I want
and to hell with their despair

for my life is mine
and I do not care for them

they raised me up high
and now there's no need of them.

their pitiful cries
as they ask for my help; no

they are beneath me 
I'm on top of my game; go

they should work harder
for I have attained it all

their jealous actions
they can't wait to see me fall

And fall I did for...
I discarded my support

there was no one left 
to encourage through nought

I was abandoned
and fury; my demeanour

for once I had all
but my loss is now keener

struggling to rise up
cannot bear to look, to start 

reclusive I am
the world I knew fell apart 

avoiding my life
as I sit in the darkness

squandering choices
hiding from my own smartness

and do nothing but
nothing for that catharsis 

depression my friend
the filth it stacks up; a mess

I cannot clean it
the will has left, I have stress

no need to arise
There is no appointment set

lay here, die in shame
for a prouder time frames bet

energised to sloth
I have become the mundane

through lust; greed attained
I kept it all, unshared, vain 

And wallow in self
My shame defined - reality

To those I have hurt
discarded and used, malady

I need you all now
If only you'd forgive me

but here I sit; spent
I'm denied all connections
and life passes by alone.

What a massive train of thought I just witnessed. Your mind really does know how to carve words out of thin air and place them at our feet saying, "Here they are, take them or leave them." You are such a cool poet. I like the way you think.

Your comment sums up pretty much everything in my life - love me or hate me, take me or not, I don't really mind either way, but if you are this person above don't bother. And then in saying that, if you a change, acknowledge it - yeah my heart works :)
