Empty Space Poem

I wrote this poem whilst feeling a bit down/depressed.

Normally when I get such occasional feelings I try to

write something about it or something relating to events

that may have occurred on the day. I hope you enjoy reading

it as much I did writing it.

ADVICE: No matter how sad or depressed you feel,Never keep it all

bottled up! A problem shared is a Problem halved :)

He never meant her any harm

Leant his shoulder for her to cry on

But her tears felt warm

As they fell on his forearm

Yet in the silence of time and space

She’d lost her place

She closed her eyes for while

For once, the stage became dark and empty

As she wished she could walk through the doors of her mind

And seal the urge which ensued with brass wires

Cold is the water that froze her already cold mind

All alone at night

Deep rivers filled her heart

At last she’d seen the world through troubled eyes

Yet in the silence of time and space

She’d lost all hope

But it was not her choice

She lived in a world of thousand lies

Where truth is nowhere to be seen

If only she had an enemy

Bigger than her apathy

She could have won

Every day she fights for her life

Every day she fights to not bring the blood

Every day she fights to stay alive

She screamed

And no one heard her

She cried

And no one saw the tears

She cut

And no one saw the blood

This time her mind is made up

It’s not like her spirit’s been crushed

It’s just she don’t belong.

Beautiful poem, although very sad and appearing full of despair. But a credit to the hubs just the same. Keep up the good work!! : )
