darkness...

Post by millipede » Mon Jan 26, 2015 5:12 pm

I couldn't think of what else to title this. This is a poem I wrote back in early 1999. I don't have an exact date because I never wrote that down. :roll:
I do know it's from 1999 though because I was taking an art class back then and I recently found it in one of my sketch books after my kids dragged them out of the other room. I had forgotten all about it.

darkness... by Daniel Mason ©1999

Anguish fills the silence
and terror fills my soul.
I sit and weep in sorrow
as despair now takes it's toll.
The emptiness before me
and the wretch I left behind...
the things I say "used to be"
still seem to plague my mind...
flee from me oh evil one
flee from me I pray...
Peace I seek yet it's not there,
and so beings each day.


I imagine I wrote this on a day I was not feeling to joyful. Truth is, I've struggled with depression my entire life and there are still(all these years later) too many days that I feel like this.

I decided to add a section to the forum for people to share written works... partly so I'd have a place to share things if I write any more. Hopefully I'll be inspired to write more. We'll see.
