Lately it seems that I've been falling.
Falling without you here.
Words don't seem to be enough
When there's not a feeling to back them up.

I spend my days working tirelessly,
Or so it would seem.
But little do they know that all the words
And looks are breaking me.

What is the importance of words,
When some should mean everything and don't?
What is the importance of words,
When some shouldn't mean a thing to me, but do?

Lately I've been dreaming.
Dreaming of the way things were before,
Before I became so broken,
Missing such an important piece that I can still touch.

I spend my nights up too late
Trying not to fall too far behind.
Always distracted by thoughts of you,
I'm constantly wondering what I should do.

What is so important that
I must break myself in the process?
What is so important that
I must lose all that I held dear?

Sooner or later, things will get better;
It's darkest before the dawn.
But all that I'm seeing is a deeper shadow,
And the pain isn't quite numbing.

I know all these things,
But my questions go unanswered,
My prayers unheard.
Am I using the right words?

What is the importance of words,
When some should mean everything and don't?
What is the importance of words,
When some shouldn't mean a thing to me, but do?


The author's comments:
I currently have an unspecified movement disorder. I wrote this because of my frustrations caused by the discrimination I've recieved because of the lack of answers I can give.
I often write to express myself when I'm going through emotional or stressful times, and that has been increasingly harder to do since I can no longer use pen and paper. But I refuse to give up.
