Treasure Island

The Queen's Dagger

(July 31 1997 / Vermont)

Anybody


Does anybody care?
Is anybody listening
when I scream at the top
of my stupid lungs?

I am crying,
I am dying.
I am no longer trying.
Every day I am lying.

What is the point of life?
Why am I here?
All I do is hurt the people
who love me the most.

There must be something wrong with me.
Does anybody see?

    If you were an infant and couldn't write this poem but could only express it in cries you would hold yourself. You would soothe yourself. You wouldn't judge you would only love. Please do the same for yourself now. (Report) Reply

    I think we all have felt this way at some point, some time life is unbearable. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
