Life, One Long Nightmare.

by TygerTyger

Scared at birth

Destined to wander through life alone
never to find true happiness
never to find a place I can call ''Home''

Living life in limbo as
one long cold lonely night
plagued by illness and self doubt
I lay helpless in life's gutter
wounded
unable to get out.

waiting for the vultures with hideous
beaks to pounce
put my faith in others
but they always let me down.

Can this really be reality
or insanity
will I suddenly awake
from the nightmare
and taste the real reality

I suffocate in desperation
I drowned in a million
internal tears
I watch life going on from afar
and so regret the wasted passing years.

Every one interprets the writings of others in different ways - I'm becoming more and more swayed by the symbolism I see in many writes and this one in particular is full of symbols. For me, on the symbolism alone it rates a 10 - well done Pete:)-Phoebe

Suffering, the inevitable

Then a beautiful dusk
Clouds tinted
Like life itself


Thinking of you

a sad, touching poem, dear Pete. Regret is what drowns us more..
to waste our emotions on those who never deserved...
warm wishes,

There is a lot for all of us to regret and your poem speaks about the human condition in general. Try to take heart from that, my friend.

"I suffocate in desperation
I drowned in a million

I watch life going on from afar
and so regret the wasted passing years."

I can relate to this in many ways, I take it to be the climax of the wonderful piece.
