A Poem: Life of Pain


The scars I wear for all to see,

They show the journey that is me,

I’m bonded by the chains I’ve made,

I’m shackled by the hands of fate,

Forever, I will always walk alone,

Lost, bereft without a home,

This broken man who no-one loves,

The empty soul, I’m not enough,

I’m tethered to this life of pain,

I wish that someone knew my name.

When I’m not writing foul-mouthed and sarcastic blog posts I also dabble in the occasional poetry. I can be a real miserable fucker and this is inspired in part by today’s daily prompt:Ā Tether

  1. “Forever, I will always walk alone,

    Lost, bereft without a home”

    Those two lines really hit home. I often feel like that too šŸ™ I won’t use the dreaded ‘b’ word, but what a wonderfully emotive piece. Shorter than some of your other poems, but it packs just as much a punch with the weight of emotion in each line.

    1. The ‘b’ word? Balls? Boll#cks? Bloody? Bast#rd? Barnabus? Bolivar? Belligerent? Breakfast? Bacon? Beef? Botswana? Bananas? Bosoms? Bottom? Button? Burp? Banality? Oh, you mean that ‘b’ word!šŸ˜‚

      Ha, true, shorter but still emotive, showing that size doesn’t always matter! Bwahahahaha!šŸ˜‚

      Nah, I wrote what I wanted and it conveyed the meaning that I wanted and if I’d made it longer it would have just been adding sentences for the sake of it. Whereas what I wrote did the job.šŸ˜€

      1. Yes, THAT ‘b’ word šŸ˜›
        Yeah, I agree. Adding extra, unnecessary sentences is pointless if you’ve already gotten your message across. It wouldn’t add to the piece, if anything it would detract from it instead.

      2. Well it took me a while to figure out what ‘b’ word you meant, there are so many ‘b’ words that it could have been! Though I’d rather you use that ‘b’ word than another ‘b’ word on my blog, Bieber – shudders!šŸ˜‚


      3. It’s sacred compared to the horrors of a Bieber concert!
        Okay, so Sprog and Jabz I can deal with…but fucking JAZZTIN BIEBER!? Nah, there are lines you just do not cross! If you ever use that name again to refer to me, I will…I will find out where you live and COVER your ENTIRE house in photocopies of ABTASTIC ROMANCE NOVEL COVERS!

      4. Do you want to wake up with so many abtastic covers pasted to your house that you can’t even open the front door!?
        Don’t tarnish my dark and brooding persona with your mean names šŸ˜„

      5. Well……if I can’t open the front door then I can’t go to work, fine by me!šŸ˜‚

        Mean names?! I am not mean and hey, at least I don’t go around threatening people, not very mature and adult like really is it Jazztin?!šŸ˜ šŸ™šŸ’€šŸ˜‚


      6. But, think about this, if you can’t go to work where will you get cash for your books and video games, hm!?
        I’m a new adult, I’m still learning! YOU, in your age and wisdom, should be setting us youngsters an example!
