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

             Entity in my Mind

As the cold darkness decends, my body shivers
With all the lonely days which have followed
my birth
Your birth has come upon me with darkened secrets
Untold secrets
Darkened souls surround me, I cannot tell a lie
To lie
Don't lie
Unless it is to hurt those you thought I loved
In love
Love me.
The most I've ever seen
The stupidest I've been
My body rolls around
Flesh is being torn from muscle,
Unused muscle
Tap, tap, tap goes the foot which knows the beat
The beat they beat me with
It's over with
Cry for me now, for I am running out of tears
Close your eyes, show me a smile
Listen closely
Leaves rustle all around us
I can't hear, I can't see
I can't speak
Bustlers, hustlers, dopeheads and friends
They call, they write, they scream for me
And only me
I can't stand this confusion,
I said -you said-we said
To the lonely old woman
She was sitting on a bench, my bench,
My flesh which sat upon this bench.
Her smile gave her away
Her eyes said what she could not say
I really think I'd like to stay
Please stay!
Here, please sir, give me your time
My lonely body aches for a taste of your
Wave to me, wave goodbye
Or was it hello?
Hello? Hello?
Is anyone there?
I'll just sit here and stare until I finally get a reply
Give me a sign
Just sign this please!
Lonely soul who writes these words
Is no longer lonely now with these words
These words
These words she's written
She's written
She's written
Her writing is DONE!!!!

Hi  SorrowsMystress,

Sounds like your mind is on high speed mode and you seem to have a lot of things to deal with. I have done this and found my self spinning around in circles not getting any were.
Great poem,
