“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


When it seems like all the world is awake,
I am dreaming.
When it seems like everyone is loud,
I am silent.
When it seems like you’re the only one,
Here I am.
Nobody knows who I am.
It takes more than sharp words to hurt me,
it takes love.
The deepest form of malice and trickery,
from the heart.
It takes the knives of a thousand kind smiles,
and meaningful words.
And yet you ask why my reality is so
skewed,
why I cannot bear to look at you and see
what you want me to.
What I see no one else sees, it’s like a mirror,
always backwards.
And when they come for me and force my hand,
I’ll grip the darkness.
You can’t make me understand what I choose
to run from,
or what I know to be the wildest form of
insanity.
No, I prefer my own illusions and lies
to your truths.
So when you’re done trying to love me,
come and find me.

To be nobody but yourself in a world that is trying it's hardest every night and day to change you into everyone else is to fight the hardest battle a human being can fight, and never stop fighting.

Wowee! Great poem, I love the style of it and the contrats between the speaker and the world :) what ur poem describes is very hard to explain but u did it really well. The ending is fantastic :)
