It's Been a While  

It's been a while since I've poured my heart out to strangers online.
It's been a while since I've lost my passion for writing.
It's been a while since I've lost my talent.

Yet, despite my loss, I feel the need to pour and pour and pour.
I feel the need to rip the words out of my ever-aching heart,
and strangle them into a world of obliviousness. 

The words that bled out of me as a younger soul have lost their meaning,
instead a world of self-destruction has gained a new place.

It's been a while since I've felt anything.
It's been a while since things have been okay.
It's been a while since I've had a purpose.

Now all I do is wait.
Wait until something pulls me back into the living,
or destroys me until I vanish.

You have spoken directly to my heart just now. I am so very familiar with these types of feelings, and I am sorry you are experiencing them - there is nothing more irritating than not being able to express the feelings that are in your heart properly. As John mentioned, it does sound as if you are dealing with depression, and if that's true, I hope you are able to find your way through it. Ive been there many times. thank you for sharing this with us!

What you are describing sounds very like depression. Waiting won't work. Get help.
