Never an End

Slipping and sliding
All the way.
Struggle to live through another day.

Liar’s mind and Lover’s heart,
Never understanding the script for
My part.

Written words and the wings of birds,
Music and songs,
False rights and True wrongs.

Who am I, me or you?
The battle inside,
Ended for a minute or two.

Theft and manipulation,
Legal tools in Life’s battle station.

Leaving and wondering,
Gone and lost.
Anger and sadness,
The line that’s been crossed.

Even when I win,
I’ll always lose
Victory’s satisfaction, a temporary ruse.
Always killing, never just a bruise.

Always the questions that form the answers,
Never an End
To us
Life’s Tortured Dancers.

The author's comments:
One thing I would like to make very clear - this poem is not intended to be seen as "emo", goth, depressing or anything of the like. It was meant to tell the story of a girl's perception of life, to show readers the other side of the story, what other people can see. Yes, I suppose the girl is me in this case. It was meant to be show how there can be beauty as well as pain in what someone's perseption of the truth.
