25 (who?)


Staring through...
The broken roof
I peer...
Between my fears

Questioning my existence...
I ask myself
Is there acceptance..?
To be found

I'm tired...
But not broken
I tried...
To be outspoken

But your eyes would not stand for it
The glares and snares deemed it forbidden
Since then I shut myself out and away in the distance

Locked inside my mind / Afraid of all humankind
I fell under the pressure / Damaged by society's pleasure
I let go of all possessions / I threw away my humiliation

Dub me another lonely soul
For I am no longer meant this world
I ripped your burdens away from my shoulders

Old bones...
Skin of stone
I'm alone...
In my home

Behind my...
Completely exhausted eyes
I am...
Looking back again

Accepting that...
I wouldn't last
The cruelty...
Of this reality
Disconnect my emotions
To indulge in my ruins
This poem is written for my project, titled- "Skin Of Stone"
Second piece for my Human Nature series.
In volume seven: Acts Of Stereotype

I've never read a poem quite like this before. The emotion you conveyed in it is wonderful. :clap:

Thank you. I'm so glad that you were able to connect to it on some level.
But yeah, this one is really different from my other work that I do. It's all improved, even the layout is improved, I just went with the flow until the very end. I might do this style again in the future, if it is possible.

To me, every stanza seems like a different story, a different person. But they connect so wonderfully, and that's what makes the piece whole. Lovely work!

Now that you say it like that, it's an interesting way to view it. hm :P
I kinda like that concept, but the perfectionist inside of me wants the stanzas to relate clearly to one another.
But the sloth inside of me is content because this is the best I can do with this particular one. :P
Thank you. :D

This is beautiful I connect with it well, described in a way I can not express

I'm so glad you were able to connect to this particular one. It's one of my new favorites. I've always had the vision of this poem in my mind, so it's good to finally get it in a solid form for everyone else to take in.

Thank you so much for your reassuring words. It means a lot, it really does. :)
