Favorite Quote:
“Unless we are creators we are not fully alive” - Madeleine L’Engle

Drenching dry

Quenching light

Sqaundered hope

Endless blight


Desires hid

Covered lies

Eternal guilt

Speechless spies


Confused start

Confused end

Confused heart

Confused head


Dark thoughts

Dark fights

Dark "ought"s

Dark "might"s


Embracing misery

Pulling down

Into endless chasms below

Searching for light

When it has only begun to storm

Raging waves of hopeless mind

Soul sucking caverns

Erase past time


Slate colored thoughts

Swirling aimlessly

Whispering sorrow into dusty corners

Unused creativity


Where has the sun gone?

Not even the moon's soft light glows here.

I wrote this when I was 14. I was starting to go through the emotional sinkhole that happens when you enter that undefined realm of "adolescence," and this was my attempt at sorting out what I was experiencing.
