    Pretty lame excuse for a poetry. Here goes nothing:

    Far from the cacophony of the world
    I wish to slip into rather some dream-world
    Like a dispersed seed or an insect windblown
    Whatever it takes, I want to betake myself to somewhere alone

    The daily fire of verbal assaults has burned me out
    In struggle for peace, I am still living there without
    In the deep of thoughts, somewhere, misplaced have I my own happiness
    And sometimes, it’s hard to relocate something after the lights-out

    In darkness have I always uttered breaths and sighs
    The time is now due for me to seek for some shaft of light
    That could I guide on, learn on and discover
    The abilities hidden under me, that never previously came to the spotlight

    But what spotlight and nobility does aloneness hold?
    When you burry your emotions in books and quotes as tales of old
    When you find someone else’s pain to relate to
    The same pain symbolized in your silence, though still undiscovered and untold

    But silence harms you, bites you and freezes you into cold immortality
    Every once a while, we all want to shout out our pains and agonies
    But there’s no use screaming or shouting
    A single person will you not find who listens to you as you slide by towns and cities

    Maybe the world is awfully cold and unloving
    Fine, so be it, because no more with tears am I gusting
    The time is ripe for me to pack it in and go away
    Till then I am waiting for a rising tide as I stand on this floodway

    Hiya, sorry.

    I enjoyed your poem. I especially like this verse - the rhythm and rhymes work well with the ideas you express.
