All the Answers Why


Only the answers why
As I gaze at an evening crescent

Only between the sighs
As blood flows, porous, effervescent

So it was this time due
Ripped the scars vertically

For all these feelings...you're
Taken into nothing totally

Yes in my heart I bleed
Day, tomorrow, in eternity

Falling the crescent seed
By night dark within paternity

One hundred and one stitch
Reside to mend this remake fantasy

So flies the weathered witch
Across a crescent moon above me

Second Hand moonlight ray
Second guessing all that which I gave

Will I live to see day
Silence knows but has nothing to save

    I identify with this poem so very much. Most of the time I have an iron grip of my depression so it doesn't get out of control again. But recent events have made that grip shatter and have made it seem like the only life I know is about to come crashing down. I have not taken that last step by cutting vertically, but I have been so very tempted. I know that I am not alone in my pain, but it feels like it. Reading your poem lets me know that I am not alone, and neither are you. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
