Life's Agony

Harkening pain of agony
Why do you torture me?
Why can't I live happily?
Why don't you leave me be?

I float on a sea of emptiness.
I feel only the hollow kiss
Of joy I've never known or felt.
My soul's a vacant abyss.

I've searched for purpose and meaning,
For truth and understanding.
But in my journey I've found nothing
But betrayl and injustice prevailing.

I like this one, though it is painfully sad.

Ouch! yeah i gotta agree this one was sad alright. However, it was written with such grace and poise. Nice job, you left me wanting to read more.
