Wearing Thin
I stare blankly at the sky,
Watching the moon slowly rise,
Thoughts inject themselves in mine,
My heart is pulsing just to cry.

Lonely on this roof I stand,
Long ago these thoughts I banned,
Feeling heartless and so damned,
My guiltless smile is a sham.

The soul inside is just a ghost,
A tattered painting at the most,
My thoughts still wander from their host,
The lack of life is what they toast.

My guilt is that I compromise,
Did my deed, ignored the wise,
Now I'm guilty in their eyes,
Apologize but I'm too shy.

Where to start where to begin,
Will I recover from this sin,
I feel love but won't let it in,
My time is short and wearing thin.

I feel for you here and can relate well. You speak for those of us who got kicked while down and are fighting to get back up and battle some more. Keep on going, my friend!
