    Both of these poems were basically word-vomit. No editing or anything has been done to them pretty much but they're explaining what I've been feeling recently so I thought I'd share..

    Where Should I Go

    There's no turning back anymore
    No matter which direction I chose
    The end is still the same
    A confined trap I call my life
    Trapped inside of my own mind
    I'm looking for a way to escape

    A way to numb the pain
    To drift away
    To find my place
    Where should I go

    And as I travel empty roads
    There is no sign in sight
    So where should I go
    How do I find my way back home

    To numb the pain
    To drift away
    To find my place
    Where should I go
    I'm at a place I hate
    Which fuels the flames
    That brings me pain
    And drives me insane
    Where should I go



    And you can say
    It gets better
    But it's the ones like me
    The ones you never see
    Who always fall short
    And into the trap
    Who endure the pain
    For years on end
    And I see no end
    Because for some like me
    It always stays the same

    Mentally defected it seems
    Return me, return me
    Tearing apart at the seams
    Don't fix me, don't fix me

    All I had has been drained
    Out of me
    Into the sea
    And all that's left
    Is the nothingness
    I've known for so long
    Why can't you see
    There's no soul in me
    Alone forever
    Why can't you see
    You're the one who's killing me

    And as my tears run out
    I have nothing left to say
    I close my eyes and wait for day
    Because light bring warmth
    That burns in me
    And light brings warmth
    That helps heal me


    I know neither of them flow very well at all but, like i said, these were just kind of stream of consciousness writing. Took less that 5 minutes to write both..just letting it all out. Not trying to hide behind metaphors anymore.
