Negativity


How soon
the evening falls.
The walls close in
and confines the night.

Caught in
negative memory,
I cringe at those
intrusions,
bursts of miserable
tasks that the brain
installs
without permission -
an unlit path
of coincidence and conflict,
a fight of tensions
and unspeakable sorrow.

Tomorrow is
a long time
coming.

    Brilliant write, as the darkness unfolds our mind can wander to negative thoughts of the past holding us back in it's tight grip that has no mercy, as the morning seems a lifetime away. (Report) Reply
