      Lost (and possibly others to come)

      Lost

      It's so difficult to say how I fare.
      I look around and find only walls,
      not four nor seven, but hundreds
      Arranged in such a fashion
      as to form a entanglement,
      Trapping my mind in mist.

      More than one problem
      plagues my mind and soul
      A battle is raging for control,
      a campaign between flesh and spirit.
      Temptation rends the fabric,
      violating the pattern of my life.

      A second battle is fought
      Among those I held dear,
      Among those who draw me back,
      Among those I held as friends.
      Their words have turned
      Once genial, now malignant.

      Her words cut deep down
      through my ordinarily thick skin,
      causing me grief.
      She thinks those around her don't care,
      thinks those words are filled with laughter.
      She gives no thought at all.

      He took my careless error
      And wears it as a badge.
      There is naught I can do,
      but sit and hope my words will fade.
      He took it too far.
      The words lost laughter long ago.

      The second of these sorties
      I can bide my time
      Hoping things will change.
      The first, however,
      time seems to run out.
      I hope what is left is enough.

      Every turn I take
      brings another dead end,
      another fruitless path.
      I sense there is a way out,
      that it is close,
      But the way is closed to me now.

      Wow girl! I didn't know you wrote prose/poetry.

      I'm not great at literature, but I'd say the narrator definitely seems/feels lost.

      "He took my careless error
      And wears it as a badge."

      Ooooo I'm intrigued...I wonder what the error was? A faux pas gone REALLY really bad

      Nice work Ame!!

      Cut

      It hurts me
      To hear you don't trust me.
      My intentions are noble,
      My words are pure,
      Your secrets kept safe,
      Yet you find something lacking?

      You know me.
      You know I'm no fool.
      It cut my eyes,
      It cut my heart,
      It cut my hands,
      Though as always I shall heal.

      Please trust me.
      I go about this having thought.
      The message will be clear,
      The words will be soft,
      The meaning will be open,
      And this will be from only I.

      You cut me,
      Yet I will do what I must.
      This will be sent,
      This will be read,
      This will be thought out.
      Just trust me, please.

      (Normally I don't like to write depressing poetry, but lately whenever I'm in a really good mood I'm not really inspired)

      Hurt

      I thought you trusted me.
      I've talked with you before.
      I've played the confidante.
      I've listened to you simply rant.

      I fear rejection,
      I fear denial,
      I fear being denied the kindness I can give,
      I fear being mistrusted.

      I told you you can trust me.
      You can tell me anything.
      I want to comfort,
      I want to help you
      I want to push away your pain,
      replacing it with a smile.

      I don't want to intrude,
      I don't want to pry,
      But I like to know what's going on,
      Espeically if someone hurts.

      It hurts when you leave me out.
      It's painful to remain outside.

      I shall forgive you,
      But another scar appears,
      My sense of worth chipped at
      As if you can't trust me.

      *turns away*

      I remembered this old thread. No need to start something new.

      [insert catharsis]


      How many tears now must I cry
      Before you will return the joy
      That I once felt those months ago
      Which now seem years since I enjoyed.

      Take away my tears and sorrow
      Take this heart so sad and low
      Show me love just like you promised,
      Please not now don't let me go.

      Hear my pleas and hasten to me!
      God, I beg you, please be near!
      I can not control this crying
      I can not see you standing here.

      In my head my conscious mind
      Assures me of your steady presence;
      But eyes of blue can not be silenced,
      Can not sense your swift attendance.

      Take this unbelieving heart
      And change it into one that's pure.
      Help me see that which you offer,
      Which, to me, you have assured.

      Lord, Your joy, I so desire!
      I do not wish to cry again.
      Help me to look past the present,
      Help my weary heart to mend.

      Hearken unto me, my King,
      Unto your daughter, weak and helpless.
      For your strength I pray tonight,
      And for your Kingdom's swift success.
