Tag: despair

it’s cold down below, won’t you warm me tonight?

sadness is a sentiment i embrace


though first it hits deep within

leaves an unfamiliar flavour on my tongue

i catch my breath, try to breathe


giving way, giving in.

when there’s no reassurance

tears will flow

my accusers ring out their cries

worthless, selfish, thoughtless,

utter failure.

i cannot escape

swallow it all,

no fight left

i surrender


time passes and sadness

now my constant companion

i turn to this one and that

still lost, blindly

casting about

no way out.
