Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans.

Standing in a circle, girded within a white room
I swallowed what was left, and rebirthed from this womb
I blanked, forgot where I was, hoping my thoughts would come down soon.
I was scared, running, the images were taunting, started to swoon.
Their faces flashed like broken screens,
I screamed-
All I could make out were the laughs and light beams
of torturous light, and ivory couches that protected my fear
Cause I swear! They moved! Im Alice, breaking light on a twisted deer.
I collapsed to the floor, cried to take it away, no more.
And nobody cared, pretended I wasn't there,
Trying to to stare-
When Id pour out my addiction out for everyone to judge
They scanned me for tears, those looks were too much
In a wonderland of lies, not looking for a way out
But I still cringe later, hearing what comes out of my mouth.

The author's comments:
I think sadness is the biggest inspiration for beautiful, meaningful poetry. This was a dark time in my adolescence, I was naive, but looking back at it I learned acceptance and who I truly was, no more denial.
