Where Darkness Lies

It’s dark inside, Nowhere to hide Shadows progress And I regress Sink further in As nightmares win Over the mind The soul’s resigned Depression seeks Consumes and wreaks Havoc and more Through ev’ry pore Poison has been  Injected in Anesthesia Makes amnesia Paralysis Again persists Mind is numbing And succumbing As darkness weaves I’m forced to grieve But tears are lost Another cost Of giving in To mortal sin Dry eyed and bare A frozen stare Reflects so well My living hell

Hi Mandie, This poem is so full of emotion and woe that it is hard to read with a dry eye. Anyone who has suffered a loss can appreciate your words. Words which are stark and brooding but somewhat softened by the gentle rhyme. A very thought provoking poem. Well done. Best wishes, cheyenne

Amazing Mandie - expressions of the darker side of life - through personal experience I too have been there - and relate to each verse, each thought and each shared emotion. Very well written, on my list, blessings, Deni
