Devouring

It is there deep inside eating me
Devouring me whole, I can’t get free.
Taking over my body and soul
Blocking out all light it is a black hole.

I wake feeling sick, I struggle to sleep
It has me in knots I am in it’s keep.
Fear it is here creeping all over me fear
Draining me eating me a rip and a tear.

Where’ve they gone where are the years
I lost the laughter and found only tears.
This fear’s not mine but haunts me still
I can’t fight it now I have not the will.

It is there deep inside eating me
Devouring me whole, I can’t get free.
Taking over my body and soul
Blocking out all light it is a black hole.

Thank you Helen Espinosa for the video

    I am in deep admiration, maybe it’s awe, that you have managed to find these words within the pain. My insidious blackness is a rare disease – and it’s reared up again. I have been writing forever, but nothing has come close to the feelings it can overtake me with like your words have just done.
    I am so sorry for your pain, but I am grateful for your talent.
    Take as good of care as possible. Hugs,
    -Robyn

      Hello Robin, isn’t it strange that sometimes someone else can explain the pain better than ourselves. I try to write it out but never quite seem to pin it down. I am however glad that it rings true to you. However I would not wish the darkness on you and I hope you are not suffering too deeply right now. We carry on we always do. Thank you for reading and your kind words keep well. xxxx
