    I’m losing myself inside my mind. Change
    Is my master, my abuser! Complications tend
    To deceive, leading me to believe that
    I am alone. When I plead at his right side
    he turns a blind eye and lays down to rest;
    Not once, but many times. How comfortable
    Is your blanket of guilt? You say heavy,
    but when the time comes your just a baby nestled
    Down to sleep peacefully. you except me not
    to weep? How can I know your words will hold,
    when so many times they have been broken with
    little to no pressure? My most precious love
    I hold on for you, but I cannot sit here
    And watch you sleep your so called “horrible” life
    Away. I cannot attend your party of pity, and
    I refuse to let you unknowingly
    push me away; what am I to do love?

      This is a wondeful poem! The sense of being lost permeates this piece. Like the comments from Esha, I like your use of a blanket to convey feelings of guilt. Wonderful!

    I did want to bring your attention to line #8...I believe you want "your" to be either "you're".

    Also, in the last line...

    "...push me away; what am I to do love?"

    Why not try...

    "...push me away; what am I to do my Love?"

    Totally your call...

    Take care,

      Gr, I hate confusion and being lost too. It's like that feeling of just not knowing what to do, and whatever solution you come up with is improbable.

    I got a bit confused though, to be honest. When you say 'he' in the poem, are you referring to "Change" or some other figure?

    The metaphor of the blanket is quite unique, I think, I haven't seen anything like it before. And it's easy to... create something out of it, you know?

    Other than that, I think this is an interesting perception of being lost and feeling slightly helpless. Interesting how the two concepts are usually linked to each other.

    Thanks for sharing (:
