Odin

Sometimes I switch into a dwelling mode
 1
Searching for a purpose amongst my enemies
 2
Every man is an artist
 3
Some carry a heavy load
 4
I’ll use mine to try and paint you a masterpiece
 5
Lost in the maze of pity
 6
I search for love in unholy places
 7
Getting drunk with no enmity
 8
Rather welcoming these oblivious disgraces
 9
Peace of mind is my only desire
 10
I am addicted
 11
To get it I will walk through any fire
 12
No matter where or how restricted
 13
I need release
 14
I am ashamed of defeat
 15
But loneliness is a thief
 16
It lies and cheats
 17
Tempted, I fall into selfish shame
 18
I carefully tread the water
 19
Breathing becomes the most important sound
 20
The outcome always stays the same
 21
I drown.

I love this poem. I feel I can relate to a lot of what you express, that I've been there in life, and other times wanted to be there even when I wasn't. Ah, the phrase "well-meaning". Whom ever came up with it was well-meaning, for sure. ; )
