A poem about losing

Ocean Waves

I am an ocean of hopeless dreams

I am choking on powerless screams

I am a wound that cannot be healed

I am a feeling left unrevealed –

I am a past which cannot be changed

I am a puzzle kept unarranged

I am an ache of desperation

I am words forgotten ... hesitation

I am seeing nothing and losing myself

I am a friend left alone on an empty shelf

I am all of an empty and all of a full

I am unimportant and ever sorrowful

I am the one who is reaching and never receives

I am lost in a forest of nightmares and thieves

I am worthy of something and worthy of freeing

I am my family, my heart, my wellness, my being

I am what I am.

I am.

I am.
