My Own Sorrow.


I’m breaking apart but you can’t see,

I’m tired of the hurting,

I’m not the man I used to be,

I leave nothing, no-one behind,

I didn’t live, afraid, I wasted my time,

I’m the ghost that you can’t find,

I’m buried in my own grave,

I tried to better,

I’m chained, I can’t be saved,

I won’t escape the demons all around,

I’m screaming silently,

I’m dying without a sound,

I’m drowning in my own sorrow,

I’m losing the fight inside,

I won’t make it through tomorrow,

I wished for hope on darker days,

I prayed for a light to guide me,

Forgotten, forsaken,

Unloved, unknown, 

In death, I fade away…

  1. Not only is this beautiful and bleeding in content (and completely relatable) but God the bravery it takes to just lay it out there. That takes so much grace, dignity and strength. People don’t realize how exhausting it is to be strong in your truth and in your weakness to just share it. Because you don’t know how people will react. This is beautiful.

    1. Thank you. Yeah, that’s true about how people react. Have to admit that I don’t really think about it though. I write for me as it is a way to get the feelings out rather than let them fester inside. I probably share too much but, it is what it is, people will either react positively, won’t care or negatively. A lot of people have said that they can relate to what I write, sadly as it is terrible to feel that way and have the burden of darkness inside and if anyone reacts badly well and please excuse the language they can f#ck off.😂

      1. I have alway been told I share too much. But, too me, its like you never know who you are talking to. And even if they don’t say anything- maybe you save a life or at least they know they aren’t the only one, you know? And for those that don’t want to hear it… whatever. I mean maybe that’s why I don’t have anyone in my life. I don’t know. But if I wasn’t authentic… they’d find out sooner or later, anyway? No. And like you said they are going to react how they are going to react. I talk about my issues in my reviews, when its applicable without a problem. I guess to me the bravery is in how you are expressing them. That is a wonder to me.

  2. Such a powerful depiction of depression and despair. It hits close to home for me. Thank you for being willing to share this with us. I hope writing and publishing this on your blog helps release some of that inner darkness. Hang in there.

    1. Thank you. Not sure publishing helps, writing it does though. People, sadly, often seem to be able to relate to the poetry and I do have a tendency to share and overshare. But, writing gets those feelings out instead of letting them fester inside, if that makes sense.
