  • well long time no posts,but im back to share with you all

The needles sting 6-9-04

Since you've gone all I feel is pain
like a homeless person 
out standing in the rain
cold wet and shaking
with no one left who cares

Left alone to sleep in doorways
at the bottom of stairs
eating out of dumpsters
picking up pop cans

No one left to care for me 
or even hold my hand
all alone and scared of life
all alone and hurting

Wanting just one thing
to escape from this life and all it's pain
to feel the needles sting.

I hope this isn't you. You are so young feel this hell but it is well done and I feel the pain with you.

when there is no further to sink and life really sucks, we draw survival from within. to feel this abandoned in life from a failed rellationship is not uncommon. it's in recovery phase that we learn and grow, or it's lights out forever. piercing words usterry. great analogy of pain.



thank you

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
