Deepest shade of mushroom blue


Sometimes its like I slip away
Into this place where everything is dark and cold
Its only here where I can be alone with my thoughts
All alone with what seems to be reality
In the darkness I am not forced to look at this world of disgust
My eyes can shut and my worn mind can sink
Into the nothingness that is myself
Alone is where I find peace
But irony is upon me
For in actuality
Alone is where my sanity slips away

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
