Power Over Me

I hold my breath,
So they can't hear me cry,
I feel so alone,
In this world of mine,
I try not to remember;
Words I could live without,
Voices from my past,
Never seem to get out.
The harder I try to forget ,
The more I remember.
I wonder why its been such a cold September,
I've lost all trust,
All control,
I live in a daze of confusion,
This world is such an ill illusion,
I can't find my way out.
Nobody to help me,
Nobody to save me,
Everyone's ready to break me;
Friends, family, strangers.
Don't act like they care.
So I'll let these tears fall,
So they can't hear,
The power they have over me.

Canta no Llorres mi amigo. Don't cry, my friend. Write poems, instead. :) Thank you for sharing. I can relate to a lot that you write. Sometimes I cannot find the words...Thank you for writing them for me.
