Used too I imagined I knew what it meant
Now I question what I once knew
Don't know where to go,
Know not who to trust,
Light shines in my face
I stumble around Blind
Seeing images of myself,
They all start with "Once Upon A Time",
I wonder if i can feel
Or does it illude my heart
To find my mind?
It makes no difference now
As I sit alone in my corner,
The only safe place I can find.


 "If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform to the prevailing standards of nonconformity."

Don't look... you might see.
Don't listen... you might hear.
Don't think... you might learn.
Don't walk... you might stumble.
Don't run... you might fall.
Don't make a decision... you might be wrong.
Don't might die.

For every truth, there is an ear somewhere to hear it
For every love, there is a heart somewhere to receive it".--Ivan Panin

Great poem hoppy....I've felt like that so many times and I guess I've got my own corner too for times like that. Sometimes that can be your only comfort.

Nice poem.  Thank God for quiet corners to be alone and still in.  Your signature is thought provoking.

hoppy: i dig the "once upon a time" line... very spiffy... keep up the good work

jerome the melancholy priest

 Disarm you with a smile
And leave you like they left me here
To wither in denial
The bitterness of one who's left alone
