**In Vain**

No one understands
The pain caused by
The passing sands
In the hour glass
I cant see but feel...
It's only imagined
But still too real
To forget about...
I often doubt
I'll make it out
Of this lie alive...
I often ask myself why
I should not just take a dive
And just not try to try...
For with each false step
My insides die...
But my mind's eye
Just won't realize
That my only fate
Is my own demise...
So I never sleep,
I lay awake and weep,
For every second I wait
Is a second I waste...
Another second my second life will never taste.
I write in haste,
Wasting words that are never heard
And watch as the meaning becomes so blurred
That my readers think all I speak's absurd,
Not really realizing
What's really occured,
Because it's not something seen nor inferred,
Everything I write is from spoken word,
You've got to hear it to feel it
If you don't you don't know what I deal with...
Or what it's like to stay real with
Friends you no longer know,
While you're dying to blow,
But you tell yourself "No,
It's not going to happen...
Here comes the real world
Go ahead and just strap in...
Get ready to let all of this crap in
To your life that you don't want to see...
Become the person that you don't want to be...
Shackle yourself or you'll never be free...
Be someone else because I could never be me..."
It's impossible
Or atleast not plausible
To think
I could survive on the brink
Of the rink
On which we watch the world revolve...
I'll never evolve,
I'll sooner dissolve,
Into nothing...
I can't sing
And I can't seem
To bring the necessary passion...
I can't seem to ration
The rhymes I've been stashin'
Away in my mind...
I can't seem to find
The fine line between intertwined
And stringing things blind...
So I write line to line,
But each verse
Only gets worse...
More and more they disperse
From where they belong...
I can't write a song...
Separate so beautiful,
But together all wrong,
And I struggle so long,
Only to find
I've wasted my time
And I'm wasting my mind
Thinking things that shouldn't be thought,
Catching moments that shouldn't be caught,
On paper I should never have bought,
Because all that it's brought
Is another level of pain,
Pushed me even farther from sane,
Thrown hours and days all down the drain,
To put it simple and plain,
This poem...
It was written in vain...

Well, I enjoyed this poem, so you made someone smile today and that is not a thing in vain.

It was a very entertaining read, and I'm glad I did.

Hope you find happiness and peace.

I loved this, the way it all flows. Great structure. I think you should definately keep writing, even if you do think it's all written in vain, it's awesome.
