Exist

I scream and shout
but no one can hear me
I'm mute in their world.

I die a little in increments,  
then revive just enough to survive,
at the end of the day.

We are an alien clan ,
set to wander upon this small planet,
cocooned in our own universe.

How could anyone fathom 
the tangled depths, of another's despair,
and heights of their joy.

When we meet we will lay our burdens down,
we will need no more.
We will exist for one another.
Nothing more.

Last few words: 
I believe in expressing my feelings, it is why I started to write.

Without feelings poetry doesn't exist, i believe there is always a part of the person in every poem. How can we fathom the tangled depths of anyone person, or what brings them joy. If only we could lay our burdens down when we meet, the world would be a better place. But as long as we have such excellent poets like you who write from the heart, i still have hope. Great poem.. Love Roscoe...

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.

What started out as bleak has swung round to hopeful. Very nice expression of your feelings and outlook.

When we meet we will lay our burdens down,
we will need no more.
We will exist for one another.
Nothing more.

Love, Cat

enjoyed reading I too write my feeling more often then not. The idea of writing poetry came as I envy other who won poetry contest back in college in the eighties.

Soon it became a way to express pinned up feelings nobody wanted to hear as well as fantasies that linger in my mind.

I'm very emotional person , but I keep all inside, i release my feelings through my poetry, for me the point is to dig inside , rather than flutter on the surface with out examining what lies beneath.

it is good that you like to express your feelings through the medium of poetry which is why you come up with such emotive writes...i believe you have tried to bring out here the two extreme feelings of joy & despair when one wants someone to share both to bring more meaning to existence..if so, that craving is expressed very vividly in this write and the title "Exist" too is befitting the theme...
