Poetry That Speaks Of Pain

Updated on August 7, 2011

Moments In Time...Slipping away from reality

My Mind Melts Into Hell

I feel nothing.
All of me taken.
Fading away.
The mind not in me, goes, leaving on an unscheduled trip.
Caring not to stop this demise.
Hold on to stay.
Chaos takes over.
Grasping, clawing at nothing.
Skin rips.
It is everything damned seen.
Slipping into hell.
Reaching out to save the soul.
Tenacious only for the pain.
Losing the grip.
Suffer lost soul.
Be bound to the ones who fell.
Take the path of the damned.
At long last insane.
Space only for all things sour.
Taking hold.
Swallowing my senses.
Death inside leaves only a shell.
Empty but for the lack of light.
Sweeping life out of the way, captured by darkness.
Pain dense.
Going deeper.
Giving up.
No longer is there a will to fight.

      There are moments when it seems that I will pop from the intensity of my feelings...both joy and pain. To this I owe my ability to write. Thank you for your inspiring words...Tis necessary at times to hear from others.

      A dark cavernous wail of virtually unspeakable pain.....uttered by and from a now stronger voice. Be proud.
