"I really got sucked in or this one. The quick analysis on this is that it is well written and the emotions come through very well. However, if it is a poem the words and feelings used here are so real it tempts one to ask if it is a cry for help. In…"

The keyboard goes tick tick tick under my fingertips

Life goes swish swish swish past my human bits

Is anyone aware of the groan of despair

Emitted by one to another

Hope a farce of desperation

A random cure for a venal nation

Where does it end?  How much can we spend?

A trickle, a flood

While I fought to stay up

Belittling my every gesture, my every thought, my every word

Leading me to believe her secret glee at my woes

Strangling me beyond recognition

Enemy of mine?

Smoldering chips of emerald dislike glare as I…

Who am I to say “no”?

Just a word to unbind her

Never to let my emotions rear their heads again

Missing out on the essence of life

I tried but couldn’t be a good wife

For the vows I had taken

On a very much mistaken

Sense of misplaced guilt

Over childhood blood spilt

In the home of a farce

Viewed through shattered glass

Was this…

I’m a fool

Who would want me anyway?

I’m just a sponge...Always have been

And here I am...trying to make something of myself...All the while clinging
