I talk to you
But you don't listen
I scream to you for help
But you don't listen
I cry out in anguish for you
But you don't listen
I fall to my knees
But you don't see me
I collapse within my mind
But you don't see me
I welcome death's harbinger
But you don't see me
I reach for your heart
But you don't feel me
I touch your soul
But you don't feel me
I give you my all
But you don't feel me
I write my words
And the paper listens
I speak my thoughts
And the paper listens
I show my emotions
And the paper listens
I want to give up
And the paper shows me the way
I feel hopeless
And the paper shows me the way
I am lost in my pain
And the paper shows me the way
I cry
And the paper saves me
I hurt
And the paper saves me
I long for the abyss
And the paper saves me
I don't need you to hear me
The paper listens
I don't need you to see me
The paper shows me the way
I don't need you to feel me
The paper saves me…
A writer's insanity, it seems like an weird concept but if you are a writer or really any kind of artist you will see the truth in this.. But in any case something new I wrote. Here it is, any comments are welcome! :)

This is the plight of a writer.  The paper is your only companion. It's the only thing that will listen when I speak of maddening words seeping into my thoughts and the horrifying hallucinations.

Beautiful~the whole thing just fit so perfectly with how I feel.
A writer's life can be very lonely at times. But the paper is just there, always, like a friend who will never leave your side. Wonderful work, thank you for sharing.

this is awesome! i feel like this all the time. i post photos and stuff on here, but as i am, by nature, a writer, i post more poetry/lyrics than anything else. an artistic nude i posted got a hundred views within the first twenty-four hours, where a poem i'm very proud of only received 7...it pisses me off. anybody pose nude in front of a camera. my words are my soul and all that make me who i am. people don't appreciate the depth of the human spirit any longer. they just want food for their eyes, rather than their minds.

Of course not that would force people to actually read and care about what they are doing.. People don't do that enough these days..

Btw sorry this took so long, I was out of town.

Painfully true.
Because humanity sucks.
And I am a poet.
And I know.

Sometimes I question my sanity while I'm having some characters from my fanfiction talk in my head oAo;
It's still creepy, yo
