I'm a wanderer, a nomad...I do

The clock is slowly ticking.......


My eyes are burning, I need some time
I need the love I left behind
The flowers which bloom inside my soul
Are wilting now from heartaches' pull
My mind speaks to me from inside
I keep running, but have nowhere to hide
The pupils intersect with the iris instead
Knives are sticking up from my once comfortable bed
I dream of you but it doesn't get me far
Yet I still always wish upon a star
But my wish will never come true
Because my only wish was you
But now you're gone and so am I
Because without you I might as well die


The clock has finally stopped......

**I wrote this when I was about 13...so please pardon some of the weird things going on, it was a confusing time for me.

Hi SorrowsMystress,

All of us have are moments in life were it doesn't seem like life is worth it, but if we give it time it usely works out, plus you were young then.

Thanks for the read,

Cerenity

Seems like you were writing some good poetry when you were 13.  I love the line "Knives are sticking from my once comfortable bed".
Another way to say you tossed and turned all night?   James
