Lost Within

In this troubled heart I've found 

no peace to call my own

My tortured mind won't let me give 

the love I want to show


I'm doing all I know to do 

to let go of my pain

With every effort that I make 

it never seems to change


I'm trapped within these darkened thoughts 

that's locked inside a tomb

With no way out I face the fear 

that madness will insue


What must I do to conquer all 

the demons haunting me

I struggle with the grasp I had 

on my own sanity


With thoughts like mine it's really hard 

to function everyday

God, please just free my mind again 

before I go insane

          A lyrical soulful song poem ! The plea to God sums it up nicely. I like the mixture of freeverse n rhyme in it, I tend to do that sometimes. The format is very poetic too. Thumbs up.

          Pls do check out my latest poem too. I'm a new poet here but have been writing poetry since years and readers enjoyed it elsewhere until I found this site and wish to make new poem pals.

            I was thinking of Country. There is a song "please release me, let me go". You could almost use your poem to that song.

            Chills down my spine!
            keep with that inner song my friend
            It carries further than you think
            Thank you for the passion in this
            I hope you found some peace.
