I Hate This Feeling

December 2, 2011

I hate how this feels to not be in control
Of my fears, my feelings
My dreams wander off without me
I am lost in an endless labyrinth of my mind and I don’t know the way through
I can’t go forward and I can’t go back
I have nowhere to go
Save me from this feeling of not knowing what to do
I feel the pain of every day of walking on glass and through thorned woods
I can’t help but wonder how my mind made this place or how I got here
Is this even my mind or am I under someone else’s control
I feel blind and deaf and like the world is closing me off
Its beauties are just out of reach and sight on this dark stormy night
I hate this feeling
Of not knowing who I am

This is sort of a rap style poem.

Not all poetry is required to rhyme. Some of the best poetry can come without rhyme

I really like this! It doesn't exactly rhyme, but I'm sure that when it's in rhythm it will sound wonderful. Keep writing, and stay pretty :)
