Day after day, night after night falling into the void
Somewhere between living and dying
A decision, a thought, somehow I had toyed
With a choice of laughing or crying

My ideas somehow divide me and are flawed
And I have to somehow endure
Being ripped apart and beaten raw
Leaving me broken and impure

My feelings are inconsequential and betray
And are good for nothing
But only to get in the way
Yet at least I am something

Sometimes I feel the need to lose my mind
When Iíve lost that need Iíve lost it all
And I know itís just a matter of time
So I delay, hoping to stall

But the thing that kills me most
Is the reality slowly setting in,
That who I once was is now a ghost,
Playing a game with no chance to win

once again the word deep comes to mind...and your mind is full of depth and your pen expresses it SO well...
always play to win...
stalking you always,
your jm
