Darkness | Teen Ink


May 4, 2018

The feeling of this can be described as, Melancholy, Pallid, An unequivocal lament.

Much misinterpreted as pain...

But darkness, feels much more lugubrious...
Much more Desolate...

When pain is only temporary, when darkness return come nightfall.

But this feeling of darkness is suffocating me.
I can feel it’s hands wrapping on my throat, or maybe it has me chained?

I take a deep breath, I hear the curtain rise, and open my blue eyes and finally mutter

“I’m Fine”

The author's comments:

This poem was inspired by how we all are dealing with something, but we stay silent about it, so we don’t have people worry about us, and how when a person asks “How are you?” We simply say, “I’m fine” when in all honesty we really aren’t.
