Array ( [sid] => 184581 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => My Background [time] => 2017-10-19 13:12:43 [hometext] => [bodytext] => came into this world with my back turned to it
tried to send me on but I returned to it
tucked me into a cold bed and there I slept
time passed on but my own company I kept

marked me like a target
but I muddled through it
never making a peep
quietly digging deep

I guess I was a lot of work right from the start
`cause I don`t remember seeing you depart
just vacant eyes staring down an endless hall
misanthropy steeped in chemical withdrawal

drowned me in apathy
gasping for breath to breathe
found myself anywhere
their hollow words ensnared
stitched my heart to my flesh
just emptiness enmeshed
made your lack of love real
to have something to heal

came into this world with my deck stacked against
feeling this /*****/ up is just a consequence
of being this alone for all these years
but you`ve always been so /*****/ cavalier
truth is, I wish you`d just tell me you still care
`cause no matter where I go, you`re everywhere
and I`m sick and tired of carrying you around
but I can`t escape all your noise in my background [comments] => 0 [counter] => 71 [topic] => 23 [informant] => MoonlitAngel [notes] => [ihome] => 0 [alanguage] => english [acomm] => 0 [haspoll] => 0 [pollID] => 0 [score] => 0 [ratings] => 0 [editpoem] => 1 [associated] => [topicname] => FamilyPoems )
