What I Could've Been

As the title suggests, the main themes of this poem are reminiscing and regret

I am a victim of feelings left unsaid

Abandoned for ruin, I'm back from the dead

My brothers acknowledge me as the greater potential

But all of us know even gods can fall

 

I'm bombarded by the horrors

That darken my heart and leave me doubtful

If only I could be more than I've been

Imagine all the worlds I could've seen

 

Stumble and fall down

Each little piece falls into place

Take a dive and live with us

Where we dwell in ruin

And sorrow has a human face 

 

I am the enemy of self-exploration

Purged and poisoned by my own frustrations

Doom is the time as the clock strikes

Now I've surrendered, at war with my own psyche

 

Deep, down within the corridors of my mind

As the tension in my will to fight unwinds

I'm losing my strength now, but yet

I'm not the tyrant to burn

Or the hero to rest 

 

Stumble and fall down

Each little piece falls into place 

Take a dive and live with us

Where we dwell in ruin 

And sorrow has a human face

 

The End
