509 (who?)
Do you know what it feels like?
To feel something, but...
be unable to express what it is;
to be silent;
to fight it alone.

I know how much it hurts,
but I don't know how to show it.
Poetry used to be my refuge,
a place where I could be alone -
express all my emotions,
without being judged.

I'm losing it.
I can't connect to poetry.
Everything sounds so stupid...
Everything I write sounds stupid.
I have to erase all my feelings,
because they don't sound right.

The words aren't real.
They don't show what I feel
And maybe this will be the last.
Maybe I'm gone:
lost of all emotions.
I'm truly alone...
I used to have poetry.

Now I have nothing.
I've lost my touch with words.

The irony is that, I am using words...yet these words don't seem real.

Thank you all for the views and the lovely comments. I'm afraid this time I did not reply to all the comments like I usually would, but rest assured I read all of them and I appreciate the time you took to write them. :hug:

I have no idea what you mean... This poem is such a fantastic expression of emotion! Never give up... You still have poetry, and fans that want to read your work :)

i totally get it...and not in the stereotypical "i feel your pain bro" bs people often spout...but i used to love writing poetry,it used to flow out of my mind like a faucet being turned on with every major emotion that occured to me...but now..i cant feel enough to have anything worth writing that wont be half made up crap to make it sound right or just plain bad poetry... sucks to have your whole world go grey and put in a daze...everything some pixilated version of the clarity its supposed to have.. . because there's nothing poetic or artsy about it...just empty..void.

It sounds like you need the writers block thread: [link] or a prompt journal: [link] :)
gotcha..i feel like this so much some times
It's beautifully sad tone poem. I may not have the expressive power. But I felt your expressive power is great. This poem is a favorite. Thank you very much.
Let go. There is no malice.
