Alone

I'm restless, I'm thinking, I'm running inside.
My mind tries to keep up,
It's trying so hard.
What keeps me awake
Is too hard to tell.
Some stories are secrets.
They'll never be told.
Take them to the grave;
Take them all alone.

I'm run to the ground,
I'm cut to the bone.
I'm bleeding for you,
Can you see me now?
What does it take?
Will this ever stop?
I need some help
Before it's too late.

I hate not knowing what I can do.
No one I can turn to,
I'm left all alone.
I should be used to this by now.
The ones that I need have all disappeared.
Gone when I need them most,
I'll never know how
To be on my own.

I'm run to the ground,
I'm cut to the bone.
I'm bleeding for you,
Can you see me now?
What does it take?
Will this ever stop?
I need some help
Before it's too late.

Guide me through this chaotic mess.
Only You have the power to keep me alive.
Take me or break me,
I don't care either way.

I'm run to the ground,
I'm cut to the bone.
I'm bleeding for you,
Can you see me now?
What does it take?
Will this ever stop?
I need some help
Before it's too late.

It's not over yet.

I really like this (: I like the first stanza and the refrain the most because they sounds almost like they rhyme which is a cool effect and they have a really good rhythm. I think if you made the fifth stanza longer it would make more sense with the rest of the piece and the point you've already made in it would be really interesting to develop. This is really good work though! (:

This Piece That You've Written Comes In As Being Very Personal For Some People, Including Me.

For Me, This Piece Is Something That Can Describe My Whole Life Into One Poem.

I Can Honestly Relate To This Piece 100%.

I Love It..!! Great Job && Keep Writing..!! :D

I'm really glad you like it. Honestly, I just write when I'm feeling down. I don't stop until I think it's finished. There's definitely more I have written and haven't posted, so keep checking back. (:

"I hate not knowing what I can do..." That whole stanza perfectly describes what I'm going through right now. I love this. I truly do.
