The pain that have cost us, the evils which have never happened.

How do you fight
the endless fight
how do you fight
the sleepless night

how do you hold to
what is real
all it does is make you
dreamless-feel

how do you
follow the light
when the shadows whisper
forbidden delight

how do you face the calm
when his voice is your favourite song
when the raging storm inside
threatens to collide

with reality
hidden insanity
fighting a curse
with rhyming verse

how do you face the simple
the everyday
when you are boiling
heart racing, heart in turmoil

how do you foil
your own damn mind
when its in attack mode
and you can't hide

paranoid and worried
terrified minds
how do you take the first step
when you can't even close your eyes.

welcome the darkness
as it envelopes
and brings you under

how do you say goodbye
to the light
the safest sight

how do you fight
the endless fight
how do you fight
the sleepless night.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Isn't this how I've felt before? It's like you read my mind. Your poem is AWESOME. It's has a lot of feeling and meaning. You expressed yourself really well, and you were honest in your poem which I love. Your poem has a connection to me and what I'm going through now. I've been having some sleepless nights. WONDERFUL and AWESOME JOB. PLEASE, keep on writing. ^_^ Thanks for sharing this!
