Shaundra Machtan Poems
Trapped in my own misery Did I bring it onto myself? Is there such a way out Am I some psychiotic freak
You see I'm weak, no strength left in me. I can't fight when there is no fight left. I'm slowly fading away into a shadowy abyss. Nights grow longer, days are no longer there.
It is almost the end of my show. I have become a vegetable because of my mistake. I can only communicate with my big toe. As everyone stands around wishing I would just awake.
Let's Play A Game
Yes, I'm playing a game. Except I'm losing. Like uno, I was always the first to get rid of all
I'm staring at our photo, as it seems to come alive. I feel those feelings I once felt, When you were by my side.
So many questions left unanswered. I'm drowning in my own regrets. I can't take back those words unsaid. Don't look back on the past.
Free At Last
I'm just going to shove everyone away, till there is no one left. Alone at last, but no one was truely there. They gave up at first sight, of my pathetic self. Some say stop being so harsh, but stop being harsh yourself.
I sit here trapped, in a room I call home. I'm stuck feeling lost in another world. Will the light ever shine through? I feel as if i'm drowning.
Just be strong I tell everyone Just everything will be okay Just don't worry it will all workout someday Wish I could follow my own advice
Lost in the rain again. When the sun was starting to shine thru. I blame myself for everything I do. Will it ever be okay?
Is this how life is suppose to be? We are the so called land of the free. Blaming other people besides our selfs. For faults that lie within'.

What have you become?
Someone I used to love,
now your a beast trapped inside a cage,
Looking for a great escape.
