"Who has the key to come and unlock me?"



for Heartshope Kandaroo: my heart to yours


They say ghosts do not know that they are dead

Just like I never realize my age

Said to be fifty but thirteen instead

Struggling with budding adolescent rage


I want to live and to live in the now

And I feel like I just got here somehow


Because of my anorexia I

Actually only look about thirteen

And will never grow up before I die

Other anorexics know what I mean


But everyone has died and left me here

Without them now to cope with life alone

Depression crushes me panic and fear

I am an enigma known yet unknown


Normal people laugh at me and mock me

Who has the key to come and unlock me?

I can relate with much of what you express, Stevie. I have to agree with the others; you have the key. I know I have a key as well. I'm just not sure I want to open that door... ...yet. Love and peace to you. Regis

i agree with Felix, you hold the key dear friend,althou it's sometimes hard to see that.
as for this poem:
Excellent written!
Reviewed by Felix Perry 5/5/2005
Only you hold the keys my friend and the ability to open whatever doors you so chose whether it be to your inner mind, your tormented imprissoned soul, or your wild and reckless heart. Guard them well and use them wisely being sure who you lend them out to.
ps...loved the illusional graphic
