Treasure Island

Mark Normand


Empty


Today just like so many days I waste away to nothing.
Standing here, frozen by fear, I feel I must do something.
The light within has grown so dim; the sunshine of my being.
A cold grey darkness fills my soul; an empty lifeless feeling.
I try to smile and lift my eyes and think a happy thought.
My thinking is dead and I find instead; all happiness is lost.
Where is the life I had as a child the happy free existence?
Gone away, leaving me to face life where hope seems missing.

    I can feel your loneliness and pain. Your words pierce into my head and sit there making me sad. (Report) Reply

    This is an excellent example of depression, the feeling of sinken to a bottom that never seems to end, may things improve and thank you for writing this, it captures despair all to well (Report) Reply

    Excellent description of emptiness, it is not a nice feeling. I hope you are that child again running in the sand. (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,
