And I am Lost Once Again

by Britt Zimmerman

He doesn't know me like he thinks
Nobody does
Even I am losing my grasp on reality
The "Real" me...
the one inside this shell

Changes come so fast
I am out of breath
no time, no room
to rest and feel the world rotate

Turning the pages so fast
I dont have time to comprehend
Just words on paper
and before I can repeat them in my mind
They are edited, revised,
completely revamped

Evolution of mind and body
brings revolution of my soul
Flowers wilt and others grow
in their place
wrapping vines and roots,
stems and thorns into my heart

Lust screams its gusty winds
around me like a hurricane
and love stands quiet in its eye
seeing me through the battle

And I know I will never be the same


Author's Note: Sometimes I feel like I have pushed so hard to be the person that I want that I have lost the person that I truly am...does that make any sense???

About your note : Yes it does make sense! The last I also like the last stanza before hat final line. The imagery is awesome. I can picture myself standing still with life just swirling around me. Truly a wonderful treat.
