I Want So Many Things

I want so many things

So many things I desperately need

But I cannot succeed


I am adrift and desperately looking

Seeking attention

I am nervous ticks

Restless and lost


I cannot trust myself

I fear my own impact

I only hope I come out of this intact.


I need help

I need my friends

But somehow this minute I am struck mute.


I have no escape

I have no car

I am left agapeĀ 

At my bleeding scars


My body paces

Emotions raw

My heart races

At my chains I gnaw


I do not trust myself

I do not know why

When I attempt to divest myself

I feel like a kite that will not fly


Watch as I self destruct

Unravel at the seams

My manner I cannot conduct

I have lost touch with my dreams


~Charlotte Greer Slater

About the Author

From Review: "Charlotte Von Woffle Greer is an artist in the truest sense of the word. Tormented, embattled, strong, fearless and fearful. Curious, and full of wonder yet jaded and defeated at times. An artist shares what they feel. A true and brave artist shares what they feel completely as Charlotte does, in these pages." -Erik Johnson
