A New Dawn

 I am casted in the role of insanity’s lover
And I fear that my act is taking over.
I am merely human, yet life is a bitch and I can’t control her
And the weight of the world lies on my shoulders.
Crowded by people, yet I stand alone
Nobody in my corner, once my cover is blown.
Incapable of trust and allergic to affection
Protective of my heart, so I sever all connections
If you get too close, I will act like I have lost all attraction
Once again, fear triumphs love and I show no reaction.
My tongue vicious, and my intentions foul
An erratic mind, with a deteriorating soul
Contemplating whether I will ever be whole.
I seek refuge in you, although I act indifferent
Subconsciously aware that with you it is different

    You articulate this so beautifully. But if you are describing yourself you are not alone in all this, not to say that you are not a unique individual; you certainly are but I think there are many people who keep themselves and their heart guarded and feel the insanity (the opening line, by the way, is awesome)

    I truly love this! I love how you describe that you are unable to trust or show affection toward anyone, but then you meet someone that changes things. Love has a way of sneaking up on you. Great job. Also, I wanted you to know that I nominated you for the Sunshine Award.

    Getting better all the time my friend. I probably would have used the word ‘cast’ in the opening line as I think it scans better but great job!
