Eternal Abyss

Updated on April 24, 2011

Darkness enfolds me in its arms
asphyxiating the life from this body
In a death grip, it dares not give
up its fragile hold
Eternal abyss swallows my soul
Tired of fighting, I give in to the chasm
peaceful and cold
sweet comforting darkness
beckoning slowly casting its spell
Obscurity surrounds me
drawing me close to its bosoms
Whispers, a lovers breath I cannot feel
sounds of sorrow, I no longer hear
I'm Alone in this eternal abyss
So far tapped, I don't believe I'll ever be found
Am I damned to die in this abode?
Have I sentenced myself to my own private hell?
Am I prisoner in my own self?
Rapt in pity I held the key that unlocks my cage
Now rusted from my tears
Condemn, remaining always locked away from the world
introvert and deserted discovery eludes me
Eternal abyss welcomes me

      darkness and the eternal abyss is a prison the person finally gives into after struggling for so long with their own personal demons, in the end succumbs to the peace it offers

      Wonderful poem - is the darkness and the eternal abyss a prison or a release? The poem deals with it so well!
