The rage embraced in heart and soul,

Has fueled my inner pain

While thoughts consume my restlessness,

No hope in me remains


I've fought control and wrestled with,

These dreams within my mind

But nothing seems to remedy,

This hurt I feel inside


Would Death relieve my weariness,

And give me peace anew

Or will it start to fade away,

As thoughts turn back to you


Does loneliness and misery,

Consist of all my friends

Or will tomorrow bring to me,

The beginning of the end


I'm bound to die a broken man,

With nothing left to gain

As rage embraced in heart and soul,

Has fueled my inner pain

          This is an excellent write. Thoughts I have struggled with too. I think most people have. Love the rhyme and rhythm!

            Hello again my dear friend. Have not seen or heard from you in a while. I too have been in and out. Your poem is sad, well penned but sad. I hope all is well with you.

                That's a heartbreaking way to look at things but I get why you do. Sometimes pain is all that we feel so it seems like that's all there is. Thank you for putting it out there, it was sad yet truthful poem.

                        Jeff, many artists do their best work when deeply troubled. Somehow it brings out the best in us. Your poem is proof of that. Keep writing please!!!
