I've said this before and I'll say it again... Free verse poetry is like playing tennis without a net...


*The black eyed demon lurched at my shoulders

I try to escape but she latched on too quickly

Fear pulsates through my every fiber

Her tiny sharp claws dig in deep ..drawing blood

Razor sharp teeth bite down with hateful aggression

I try to fight her off with my all...it's too late though

She is fully hooked on to my flesh

She slowly sinks in with an agonizing pain

I shriek with madness

I have two names now... natalie and clementine

Thanks for reading
-nat

I'm trying to release my darkness through poetry and just writing in my journal.
My mind is engulfed with darkness and I just pretend to be happy. I truly can't help this.
Thanks for reading

It makes me sad that you are in a place of darkness sweet Nat. Just remember as long as there is hope the sunshine will return to burn away the darkness!

Here's a little sunrise to give you a kickstart:


Keep working it out through your writing. It may be dark, but it is beautiful!
((((HUGS))))

Hello. Thanks for the sunrise..
Maybe one day the darkness will be lifted...but how my brain is working right now ...the only time I'll find true happiness is when I'm dead...

That may be true about your happiness, but then I have come to realize we are not only here for our own selfish desires of happiness...we are here for others, some of whom depend on us for their own existence let alone happiness.

I am sure if you will look around you will see someone who needs you! Each of us have our demons, so look into the darkness, but do not dwell there.

We are here for others. I know I'm being selfish.

I know who needs me... and what was terribly odd to me was that I said today.. I don't want to be needed... but then now I'm thinking and I do realize I don't have a choice. We can make our own happiness but mine is always fake. When I look at my boy I feel happy that he's here and how much he's helped me stay here...

Nothing wrong with being selfish!

When you are on a plane they instruct parents to put on the oxygen mask first then take care of their child because you NEED the oxygen to survive. The same applies in life we must take care of our self NEEDS before we can take care of others!


Many of us have a wrong belief of what we NEED vs. what we want however, and it is a Demon (metaphysical, personal or whatever) that pushes those desires and NEEDS...

And the vents of your soul spew out the darkness from within until the pressure is released and it subsides.
I do the same thing with my art and writing/poetry when I do it.

It helps to visualize the vents releasing the darkness.
Almost like a balloon deflating,
at least for myself that is how it feels.

Awesome poetry Nat!
Keep releasing.

I really enjoyed the experimentation at the end; with the two names. Good poem!

That was intense, Nat.

Whatever you may be feeling in your personal life at the moment, one thing is certain: the short story boards wouldn't be the same without you, in other words, WE need you nat! Pitch black poetry and all! Hope you feel better. Writing can be very therapeutic for the soul.
