Dark Thoughts

Dark  is  the  night , heavy  this pain  I bear

Empty  feelings , black  thoughts emotions  flair.

The  pain is  eating me  up pounding in  my  head

Evil, sugar sweet voices tell me I’d be better off dead!


I cannot  breath my chest is too  tight

The  horrors  crawl  towards  me  every night

They  engulf my  very essence strangle  my  soul

The  rip  me  open  and  devour  me  whole.


So dark  the  night  so  dark  my  soul in such plight

I need someone to find me  and  lead  me  to  the light.

One  more  cut, one  more  pill, I pray it will be my last

My ugly  face, my  ugly  body into the black pit  be cast.


Cut  my arms until  they bleed

Cover  them up  to hide  my  need.


Have  another  drink  and  take more  pills

Fall into  oblivion  to  escape  my  ills.


For  those  suffering  with  depression

    Depression is a merciless murderer of joy… I know this dark place, a bad place to stay. ❤

    This might be for you given the synchronicity – Sometimes, you need to propel yourself from within the deepest waters and rise through the fiercest flames to see beyond the flesh the driving force of the thought. Hearts in stillness see beyond the veils
