Where is the light that you promised to me?!
I thought it was clear that I needed you here!
I feel so alone, so lost and confused...
I'm stumbling blindly, don't know what to do!

Where is the light that stopped all of my tears?
I stay up all night 'cause I can't sleep with these fears...
Where are you now that I'm falling apart?!
You left nothing here but this hole in my heart!

Where is the light when I need it the most..?
Why did it leave and where did it go?
What did I do to lose all that I've known...?
How can I live when I've lost all my hope?!

Maybe it's me who has misunderstood!
If I could fix my mistakes then believe me I would!
You're the piece of my heart that will make me complete!
But I can't hold to your lies and deceit!

I may look alive but I'm dying inside!
Dealing with all of this pain that I hide!
I wish that you couldve had the decency...
To at least put me out of my misery!

Where is the light when I need it so badly..?
Why do I try to be something I'm not?
What can I do when this pain is so maddening...?
Just suffer alone and waste my last shot?!

Where is the light that's supposed to be there?!
Can nobody hear me, does nobody care..?
Now I'm alone left to drown in despair...
Nobody knows or is even aware...

That I'm tired of coming home just to fight
I know that you lie when you say it's alright
That these scars that I bear are hidden from sight

That I'm stranded in darkness, a blanket of night
Can nobody hear as I silently cry
For someone to show me the way to the light?
Idea is not originally mine; I drew this piece out of my good friend ~EmoRapunzle's poem of the same title. I've been working on it all weekend, and I really hope that I captured the same desperation that she wrote it with...

It'd be totally awesome to see what this would sound like in a song.. anything from a Bright Eyes raspy sadness, or like a La Dispute angry cry. Or like a Circa Survive kinda deal with Anthony Green's voice. OMG NO, Dallas Green could sing this too.

You know what, I'd love to see all those bands cover this poem, I don't hear much about bands covering poems, but I know it's been done sometimes.

Awesome stuff!

Why desperation ? I know that you can write a cheerful one. Anything that would make your poems better.

I'm glad you think so, but it would not exist if you hadn't shown me yours first :3
