pen to paper,
thoughts are swirling,
would be whirlpools to
the depths

lifejacket useless in this wind,
the current pulls,
attempts to swim

my body wishes sweet surrender,
take me now or leave forever,

I cannot feel the pain of thoughts,
true or false,
it matters not

I wish I could feel others’ love,
but my abyss is deep enough,
all love combined
could not provide,
weakness covered,
mask of pride,

I just want to reject the lies,
but stories long and old abide,
I wish a lover at my side,
darkness consumes,
within I hide.

  1. Thank you for the poem, the depth of which you write was quite refreshing.
    I love it when a poem makes you think, I do the same when I write mine (or at least attempt)
