11 (who?)
Sometimes I just lie there
curled up in a ball
Sometimes I just cry there
tears that tell of all

Sometimes I will scream at night
Sometimes I will try to fight

Sometimes I just hold on
to what might be my heart
Sometimes I just fold in
to this bloody art

Sometimes I will feel the pain
Sometimes I'm just numb again

Sometimes I just sit there
staring into space
Sometimes I just hit here
to feel the pain I face

Sometimes I will look my part
Sometimes I'm masked to hide my heart

Sometimes I just sing
a horrid chilling song
Sometimes I just fling
my tired life along

And sometimes in the dead of night
when the shadows move with life
I'll lay and tremble in dead fright
as I stare at the deadly knife
And think that I could end my blight

Sometimes I will prick the skin
but then put the knife back
Because deep down and within
it's the courage that I lack

So please excuse my madness
and excuse my horrid mess

But sometimes I am myself
And that person holds no wealth

Sometimes I am happy
but most of those days are gone
Sometimes I am sappy
those feelings I do not act on

Sometimes I'm just dark
actually that's always me
Sometimes I lose my spark
I wish you'd hear my plea

So sometimes you just get me like this
Here without my mask
You see me stripped of all my bliss
Like life is just a task

Please just bare me
Don't stare at me
Or tell me to come back.
This is me now
I'm not sure how
But heart's something I lack.
So. Um, yeah. I actually like this one. It's... dark-ish. And very much how I've been feeling. Though, that's a secret, my mask is very good so no should tell that this is me. ;) Yeah. I'm demented. Oh well!

Thank you. And... for what it's worth, I'm sorry that you feel the same as I do. :)

You're welcome!! :D
This poem sounds like how I have been living for half my life, just waiting for it to get better, but end up finding myself stuck in the darkness.
I feel the same way. I hope it gets better, but for now... you can always make poetry of it, right?
yea but i can never get the words out. i have written journal entries in a composition, but can never put it into a beautiful poem.
Just rather express myself through enjoying other peoples poems.
That works, too. XD Thank you.
