Darkness sometimes engulfs** a few poems

I have a few poems to share... Some hopeful ... Some in my state of depression ..

I stumble
I crumble
I fall
Tears stream
No dream
I fall
Heart aches
Body shakes
I fall
No feel
All real
I fall
Soft cries
Can't rise
I fall
Play dead
I fall
Can't see
Can't be
I fall
Hold fast
Gotta last
Don't fall

I stand up
I don't fall
I lift my chin
I stand tall
I see this face
I take my place
I stand tall
I smile with wonder
I don't wander
I stand tall
I hear melodies
I see goodness
I stand tall
I am joyful
I am blessed
I stand tall
I can't doubt
I can believe
I stand tall
I love beauty
It's my duty
To stand tall

Want the blood moon to swallow my soul
Leave me empty a hollowed hole
Tears rain out ...quickly from eyes
I can't run or even try to hide
Take it in and take the pain
I have nothing to want or certainly gain
Streams flow down with such an ease
I truly think I need this release.. please
Falling over in a cringing manner
I have no white flag.. no happy banner
No one here to grab me up
I seem to have lost a lot of hope
Eyes swollen ...completely shut
It hurts so but comes from my gut
Have no idea all will end
I just want my heart to seriously mend

Drag me to the gates of hell
Already here ... as I dwell
Voices echo a sad melody
Being pushed under quite swiftly
No one really actually cares
Heart breaks.. smashed.. bare
Spirit shatters into a million pieces
I can't hide now in any places
Let me die and let me be
I'm sick of blackness engulfing me

wander through this life of a maze
Loneliness takes over... stare is a glaze
Voices screaming in my head ..won't stop
I try to run but I trip up and flop
Is this the end of the puppet show?
How will I know, where will I go?
I try to push this demon away
She simply returns ready to stay
I feel small hope trying to come out
I yell at the voices, what's this about
Let me be
Gather my thoughts to a happy memory
Filled with love and also with glee
I live in the darkness at certain times
I'll see the light again as I climb
When I've fallen deep down in my well
I'll come back out surely feeling swell

The days are long ...not on cue
I sadly sit here .. tears aren't few
Lord have mercy on my soul
I'm only left with a gapping hole
I know this will pass.. I just can't see
Blurry eyes blind... All of me
I simply want this blackness to go
I need a beauty to reveal and glow
I wish at times... certain love was shown
Then I feel as if everything has blown
Who's to say what's really real
I cower down low and try to feel
My mind plays tricks .. Won't let me rest
I beckon a release for the very best

Why did you leave me?!?
Did you really think it would be okay?
Did you think it would make me stronger?
It hasn't
I'm weak
I only wear a mask now
I stay in my well
Now my mammy is sick
Your mother!!!
You're not here!!
And I have to handle this on my own
I don't want to
But I have to
I have to
No one understands
Maybe one or two
But it still feels like no one
Everyone hides
Everyone fakes
Everyone lies
I'm done
I'm done
I want to be released
I want to join the next realm
I want to be done
But in reality
I can't be done
My son
He needs me
I'm not strong
But I can pretend
Wear my mask
Fake my smile
Inside I'm dying
Inside ... I'm dying

The friends I get close to wind up to be crazy
I don't understand this one bit
The friends I want too far away
The positive lights have darkened out
I don't know what to do
Crying helps but hurts my head
I'm scared
I'm lonely
I have no one
I have no one
Where's my true friend?
I don't know
No one here now
But lil ole me
I can't speak
I can't sleep
My mind is closed
I'll keep it closed
Secrets held within
Stay within

That's it for now my friends .. Thank you for reading
Peace and love

It's good that you write; it helps to get all of those negative feelings out so you can make room for the more positive ones.

I liked your poems. Honesty is refreshing.

I once read "the height of your joy cannot exceed the depth of your sorrow." It's in the book 'The Prophet' by Kahlil Gibran; I think you would love that book. It's a very small, but life-changing read for someone doing soul searching.

Wishing you peace.

Oh I love ya avatar!! I shall check that book out.. I love a good read..
I wrote four of those poems today within a few hours.. I'm just going through things and I needed to release and writing always helps

I need more positivity I know.. But darkness sure has some good writing

I always pull through.. I like to share my darkness and then I can go towards the light.. Thanks for reading

Great poems as always Nat! Sometimes I too know that darkness. Love your avavtar!

Yes. Well done!

Keep all your writing, no matter how cringeworthy and rewrite them - you will always learn new words and new ways of saying things - and there will always be someone who will appreciate them - they're also a nice little, poetic journal you can read back on.

Chins up and write!


P.s. God! I didn't mean these are cringeworthy!

Hey thanks!! I have a ton of diff journals and I write a bunch of my poems on my phone and so I've been in the process of writing them down on paper so I will have them forever. Cause one day.. All the power could go out and if I didn't write them down I would be super sad!!
Thanks again
