Wasted

Nightmares of the potential I wasted haunt me at night. Repeats of the old me cut deeper than a sword. And when I ask for help, I often get ignored. If I speak on my true feelings, I'll be told that I'm too sensitive No, everyone is too dismissive While I feel casted into a pit of anger. no one to vent to so my emotions are spilling over. I can never get it right, its like either im over or im under I'm too smart to realize how dumb I am I lack the ability to find the motivation to uplift myself because everytime someone else has a problem I forget myself I dismiss myself But when im lying in my bed on my face crying All I got is myself.

Those are moments that come in everybody's life. Well expressed...( But I think it's more a free verse). ;)

"because everytime someone else has a problem I forget myself I dismiss myself", Try to remember yourself because you can't help anyone else unless and until you help yourself. Despair often blinds us to this but, we are wiser beings and can see it's deception. Powerfully penned.

This entire poem is fantastic - so true. But I really like this part: "If I speak on my true feelings, I'll be told that I'm too sensitive. No, everyone is too dismissive." BRAVO! Keep writing and keep posting!
