<>~*~<>Dying Soul<>~*~<>

It seems I have to pay a fee,
for him to listen to me.
He couldn't possibly talk & listen at the same time,
the man can't even chew gum and walk sufficiently,
never mind just what kind.
It's so hard to get through to him
It's even harder to get him to listen.
Talking it out,
just doesn't seem to be the solution,
so instead we resort to screaming shouting all about.
The more I try,
I feel like my soul has already died.
I love him,
I just loathe how he acts,
and most of the things he does.
If I'm going to stay,
working things out is a definite must,
because I just can't live this way.
No one here to turn to
I need some kind of clue,
perhaps as just what to do.
I suppose I am just very confused.
Even though I didn't play with fire,
I was still the one who ended up being burned,
but from now on,
on him the tables have turned.
Now revenge I yearn,
and he's just how I learned.
Tears stream down my face,
I've got to escape from this place.
I'm sick of it here,
all the same faces.
Tears of boredom flow,
all there's do is to watch the leaves blow!
I just need somewhere to go.
Even if it's for one day,
all alone by myself,
I yearn to get away.
Find a place where no one know my name.
but they're still glad I came anyway.
Does a place like this even exist?
Perhaps this is just another fantasy,
dream, another one of my heart's wish.
I doubt when I finally leave,
if I'll ever come back to stay,
even if it's just to visit for a day.

Very well done. We all need our own 'space' now and again. We all get bored and tired. Just want to let you know you're not alone!
You have expressed your feelings very well!
