From dusk to dawn,
my soul...
it lingers

cold and
alone

in this desolate place
that we call
reality.

Though inhabited
by many,
these are

bleak and
forsaken grounds.

I feel that
I'm trapped
with no way out,
no escape,
no bliss
awaiting me...

Without a future,
without a purpose,

my yearning soul...
it roams
this earth;
this grave...

As the darkness
continues to
consume me...

As the numbness
feeds on
the remnants
of my sanity
a little
each day.
I think most of us have felt this way at one point in our lives...
Hope you like it. :D
 Keep your head up high and keep fighting. Heart Black Rose

I really love your minimalist style here, it really makes you take the words as they are...more heavy. At least for me it makes their meaning that much more pertinent. Very nice :)

That dull aching feeling of nothingness, is what this reminds me of.
Lovely poem, really well written :).

Thank you very much. Oh yes, that numbness that rots in your chest to the point that it hurts. I can relate. NaNoEmo - Day 2

Though we may feel that we're fighting our own battles, we, the hurt and the broken, are all one army fighting this battle called "life" together. Heart

I can completely relate to that feeling of emptiness. But if you truly think about it, and look at others who are also fighting their way through life, you'll feel the slight relief to know that you're not the only one who is suffering.

I feel that
I'm trapped
with no way out,
no escape,
no bliss
awaiting me...

I seem to exist in a moment that is just off from the one my friends experience. What works so easily for them is a struggle for me. They are open whereas I am blocked. I am trapped in it, awakening each morning to no real change other than the ongoing slow replacement of cells, my fate established, my destiny set long ago. Although, dA is my bliss! :)

Wonderfully said; so relatable. dA has become my run-to as well. I'm glad that we share one of the few recognizable sanctuaries in our lives. :)

Favoriting this at the speed of freakin' light! You've made a good, solid poem that gets a emotion and concept across without much difficulty. You should feel proud of yourself. This is excellent.

Nicely done, my friend!
The best thing about reality is that we have something to manipulate and mold to our liking.

Yes, that's true. Although we may not always be able to change or control external issues,
we can change our perspective of reality. Life isn't easy, but if don't wanna drown, you gotta keep swimming. :)
