Among Shattered Confusion

My name is William and I have been writing poetry and lyrics for so many years. I'd like to be published and accomplished writer.

I've stood here too just like you
Belonging to a circle of misfits
They no longer needs to be seen
So believe here is where I dream
Lost among 1 billion thoughts
Not able to collect even one
I've begun to perceive
Nothing makes since

Sitting behind this window
It's misty, tears are there
You cannot see them at all
I muster up the pain
Losing track of what time even is
All that has been missed
Behind these bars and this brick
The memory it makes me sick
Thinking of all that will never be recovered
A true measurement of resentment
Balled up as to be able to forget this
That could never happen

Sitting on a bed so long I had bed sores
Singing inside my head misery lingered
I poked my finger at so many men
It broke me all over again
I've not seen the moon for so many nights
Lost track of what was real or not

I pose a threat even to myself
So many victims they can't be counted
I pray today because of my brutal sins
Will not give in to that type of lifestyle again
I was contained and forgotten
Tossed to the side
I could not hide
The ugliness of my tortured face

Today I sit in the light
Afraid of the dark and what creatures bring
Smiling but that's fake
Cause my head is scattered and grey
Only difference is today
I'm not encaged with rage
Inside a dark moldy cage...
I'm home now
Surrounded by shattered confusion
