Phantom of the Mind

This is the point of no return.
A phantom that is completely my own.
No longer can i hide from these thoughts.
No longer will this ghost go unknown.

For so long, I've run from my feelings.
For so long, I've pretended they didn't exist.
But my emotions have grown tired of being silenced.
My life has now taken an unexpected twist.

I'm weak, because i used to be strong.
I'm broken, because i used to be whole.
I used to ignore my heart's pleas,
but now my heart is taking control.

Could he what i've been waiting for?
The one to teach me to embrace life's pain.
Could he somehow teach me to love again?
To stand when i stumble in life's pouring rain.

I surely cannot begin to describe how your words have hit me. You've described my current situation like you've known me forever, and yet we've never met. How curious it is that these feelings are so common? A beautiful, glorious piece you've presented here.
