    To Lie is To Be Human

    The Words hit the page
    And the Feelings are cut in half
    Something that the text
    Something that the symbols lack
    All these worthless nagging thoughts
    That do nothing
    Misery and Turmoil
    From within it rots
    And I can't manifest a thing
    I cannot manifest what I need
    and I can't make a thing right
    Too Afraid to live
    Too afraid to Die
    For a soul
    For them all
    One life always leads to another
    Another day
    Another Mistake
    THe Nightmare Begins
    As soon as I awake

    "The nightmare begins as soon as I awake." That is powerful... Amazing. I love your style. It's life in words. Thank you for sharing.

    This was very deep, it flowed smoothly and straight to the point... if this is venting, I want to hear more of it... I've been frustrated at the things around me and about certain things in life... The turmoil and chaos is what defines us, and it's definitely a helping tool to us writers... I believe every darkness (negativity) needs a shed of light and a person could be that light... when people read this poem they will connect and relate to it and maybe help them, so think of yourself as that light... continue writing... I enjoyed it, thanks.

    Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.

    Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.
