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!

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.

It's so beautiful. I almost cried with the emotion. I am sorry you sometimes feel this way. I love the poem.

Thank you. But please, don't be sorry. It is not your burden to carry. Those who suffer from this may feel the sadness for another in the same place, but those who do not should not worry themselves by mulling over such a thing.

You sounded like Ichigo right there. "It's my burden not yours"
