Poetry

Pushing Forward Back

By Jaken Steele

The sun rises the sun sets
Days and nights slowly go by
Each hour is a lifetime
Each day an eternity
Loneliness envelops me
Sorrow becomes my friend
Pain becomes pleasure
The line has been crossed
Where do I go from here
One step forward two steps back
My heart sits in pieces
Broken and battered
I feel nothing inside
Yet I sit and cry
Alone as before Alone forever
