in your cozy world

in your cozy world
by scott

scott asks that you please
READ VERY SLOWLY

i see you there in your cozy world
laughing with your friends
as i sit so close
so far
so alone
screaming at the top of my lungs
tho noone hear
 
darkness cold
aching pain  blinding silence
i can't get out
i can't get out!
and theres none who can help
 
i want you to touch me
see me
reach me hear me
know
but, alas,  how can you?
i am deeply covered
with no escape
 
its like drowning
or burning alive
or being buried alive
or walking for weeks in the desert
or sub zero wind that rips through your soul
 
i'm alone inside of my shell
i'm a captive without hope
without light
without companionship
so very alone
 
sometimes i cant breathe
or think
or know anything else but the aloneness
it strangles me
buffets me
mocks me
 
i cry
and no one sees
i cry out
but no one hears
i speak to you so many many things
but they do not leave my mouth
nor venture beyond my mind
 
i see you there in your cozy world
laughing with your friends
as i sit so close
so far
so alone
SCREAMING at the top of my lungs
tho noone hear

Scott, I did read it very slowly & several times. I wish I could tell you that things will change. I can tell you that I hope that they do. What you've written can help because before someone can change, they have to be made to think. Your poem definately has that effect.

Thank you for having the courage to open your heart to reach more people, and touch others, Scott.

I can and do "hear" you.

The beauty of your expression is: this is a medium that allows one to be heard in myriad ways.
