losing to the flow

life keeps spinning
out of control
all the time, i
want to try

although i lack
i'll keep going
and running

i'll reach an end,
please empathize
and listen

to my eyes.

I think I understand what you are trying to say. You are trying to get with the program, but just can't seem to get in step. I know how that feels. There are times when I feel the same. Life goes at such a dizzying pace these days; everything seems to be faster and faster. You are not alone, many people are trying to slow down, catch-up and just get a sense of where they are headed. Your flow is fine here, it shows the reader just how hard you are trying. Your language use is fine and the end begs for understanding. I'm not quite sure about the last line, but I think that you are saying that you cannot or are afraid to speak, or maybe people just aren't listening? Overall, a fair poem. ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

I don't speak much to others, so sometimes it's like i'm begging others to understand me without even saying a word.

good poem...I love the last line! I think that the eyes speak volumes, a language all their own! it also says "take the time to see me!" good work!
