Maddened Wishes

*** Please note that this poem is not indicative of how I feel.
How do they not see?
Broken I be-
cracks
up
down
head to the ground.
How do they not hear?
Wretched I be
screaming
voice taut; shrill
black vortex swirling
madness whirling
sanity
raveling; un so fast.
I cannot keep up.
Fingers grasping
ledge crumbling
losing battle
mouth open
eyes wide
tumbling-
fall to nothingness.
Weeping in failure
dreams lost
tides turn
neap
ebb
float away…..
star bright
star light…..

Endless Time

Hard
no explanation
no words
encompass
emotions fled
tears fall
voiceless
mouth moves
no one
never anyone
hears
caught up
caught behind
false life
pretending glories
mirrored falsities
one upon another
building
lives further
further from truth
further from sanity
further from…..
very 
very 
sad.
Wrapped
wet linens of melancholy
trapped
burgeoning fears
standing on the lip
bizarre mirage
flickering in the future
never
to be found…..
oasis lost.
Sad
truly
truly 
sad.
Wade the depths
sink slowly
beneath
blue waves
float
graceless
eyes wide
tears gather
stars wonder
last breath
time to say good bye
for this sad
it has climbed within
unable to find succor
I want it all to end.
