Looking at the ceiling
night after night
waiting in vain
for a hopeful ray of light
I keep telling myself
to hold on to life
there must be deeper reasons
for all that endless strife.
                     
Trying to devise
a bunch of tricks and schemes
to feed my hungry loneliness
with treats of boring themes
I'm getting filled with hopelessness
and pain in my heart
because of some unknown
and unjustified act.

Waiting for a letter
a knock on my door
a voice on the telephone
I'd never ask for more
I hear the time's rush
breaking my existence
forcing me to the slavery
of fatal subsistence.  

And when I turn the lights off
to start the ghostly sounds
revive the fictive shadows
and sleep with strange bounds
I imagine your face
inside a misty frame
smiling at me again
my heartbeat's fast refrain.

A poem that unites people and lets them know they're not alone in their thoughts. Wonderful :clap:

So good... I really connected with this. The loneliness is tangible here. And at the very end you hint 'i imagine your face inside a misty frame smiling at me again my hearbeats fast refrain'. i took that to mean someone special?

Not really, Acacia.
I thought it would make a good ending.
Thanks!
