Why?

My mind it does feel so very lost today,
In these vast unforgiving loops of time,
Where I am headed, I know not for sure.
What I do fear, why my heart does cry?
Why am I caught now in a maze of lies?

Why do I today just feel so alone and sad?
Feel no one is there anymore by my side,
Feel the tears just slipping away from me,
Feel like some part of me has begun to die.

Where do I go now, to escape from me?
In the ecstasy and the despair I drown,
In times that I should look for success,
Why is it failure I am looking to crown?

Why is it that I feel I am not loved anymore?
Why do I feel, the zenith I cannot reach again?
Why does despair pierce my citadel of joy?
Why do I find in every smile some little pain?

My mind is clouded with questions unknown,
Every minute I dread my friends leaving my side,
Every minute I wish, I knew what is happening to me,
But from this gloomy me, I know not where to hide.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
