my first post, a poem i wrote about a month back after watching Taxi Driver...title is copied straight from Stone Cold Steve Austin's movie! <shameless grin>
As you lay awake thinking of the times gone by,
About everything that always went wrong but could've been right.
A stranger, a spectator, watching the world run in circles,
But a mind, trapped in a cocoon, ready to break free and fly.
A shackled being within, screaming for help since forever,
Why do those wails make you smile?
You're not alone, but still lonely,
Surrounded by black shadows that'd disappear when there's light.
The smoke filled air creates countless images,
Of moments and memories, the pain of which would never subside.
The past won't forgive and the future is blurred.
But all you can do is keep walking the road to nowhere with blindfolded eyes.
You try to wash away the tears in rain.
But with a bleeding soul inside, did you ever need to cry?
They say they can show you the path to eternal salvation.
But a condemned is doomed in its own entrapment, until he dies.
