It is past time...

...that i make a return to the Mire. Alot of crazy shit has been going down in my life this past couple of days and Soon I will need a place to vent before I burst

Void, canceled, simply annulled.
Endlessly aching, unconsoled.
Life without you, cause without reason.
Touch without sense, time without season.
I face life now facing a cancerous sore,
A sordid parasite that eats at my core.
All that makes me whole, all I hold deep within,
Leaving me lifeless, or at least not livin'.

A shallow face, anguished and marred.
An empty space, scaled and scarred.
Sweetly abiding to a cynical charade.
Secretly hiding 'hind a fictitious facade.
Still, lost within this heart of glass,
This fragile and yet unfeeling mass.
Lies the remains of a love that glowed,
The gift to you I once bestowed.

But honor and pride now bereaved-
By your love for me so misconceived,
Ripped from my inner depths, impeding-
Mind and body and spirit, bleeding;
Now's crushed to sand from thy ruthless hand,
A cold stare I just can't understand.
I feel that somehow, somehow I'm dying,
At least my soul and all that's underlying.

A simple void, is that what I've become?
The hollowed sphere on a pendulum.
Swinging back and forth, emotion to emotion,
Never once stopping, nor slowing the motion.
No reason, no answer, no justification.
The creation of a sterile imagination.
Just passing through time as time passes me.
Merely a nothing- nothing, merely, left to be.
Sightless and soundless, unseen and unheard.
Mindless and boundless, obscure and absurd.
All empathy lying ungraced, unemployed,
I live my life dying, unembraced, a void.

whoa - emo poetry on the mire... i wasn't expecting that.

i really like the last stanza, though. particularly the pendulum metaphor, and the line 'mindless, boundless, obscure, and absurd'.

oh, and i'm putting on the captain obvious cape here, but if this is what i think it is: DON'T GO BACK. something about the definition of insanity being repeating the same process over and over and expecting different results...

i didnt even notice this till now, been ignoring the mire like the others...

yes read the definition of insanity, i do believe it applies.

oh and steph, how come I've never seen you in this "captain obvious cape?" ;p
