I've written so many poems in my life, because they allow me to express myself in an acceptable way. Here's one that I wrote this year after my hospital stay, called Passing By:
Counting the tiles on the ceiling
I guess I know about this feeling
Staring at the bathroom wall
Wondering what life is for
Blood drips down the glassy shards
Watch me as I play my cards
No one knows but will they ever
See the flesh I tore and severed?
Beeping sounds and loud machines
Pouring rain and broken dreams
What is this sudden monotone?
Why am I so far from home?
Worn out carpet on my feet
Strangers that I'll never meet
Walking in the cold dark night
Helicopters take their flight
Sterile sheets will never suffice
Walk around like stuffed puppets
Who are you? What do you do?
Do you even have a clue?
Tears fall down like broken raindrops
Pelting down upon the rooftops
Wait 'till I can see again
Wait 'till I can breathe again
Do you guys write much poetry? I'd love to read some!~ Feel free to post some of yours, too!
