A Melancholy Scene - Poem by Silentpoet Grl

awakening swallowed in pitch black
no longer moving I'm securely trapped
walls enclosing in on me tightly
all memory gone, completely vanished
gasping for air, am I even breathing?
scared, I'm pleading, screaming out
but no voice escapes past my lips
warm water droplets start falling
I feel within them a sense of grief
confused, everything starts moving
in a blink, daylight blinds my eyes
beautiful black wings have emerged
taking me to the skies I float above
looking down over a melancholy scene
people dressed in black all around
weeping, pouring tears over a casket
as its getting lowered in the ground
upon my wrists I notice dried blood
memories come crashing in like waves
anguish spilt from crimson carvings
with tears in my eyes, glancing down
remembering deep hurt I tried burying
past demons, their cruelty displayed
how hauntingly they led me to my grave

    Ah, the shadows of death seemingly loom
    In the bleeding heart of your poor lonely room
    There is no joy for life and that sounds so sad
    But your still breathing and for that we're all so glad

    Wow, this poem blew my mind. It's amazing, detail, everything, it's probably one of the best poems I have read on here for sure. Keep it up. And I'm sorry, if all the pain is real, by the way. All mine is that's for sure. (Report) Reply

    Terrific imagery, I felt like I was there.Great rhythm too.
    Starts out like a mystery, then it becomes clearer, and ends with a twist. It has a very dreamy effect, and is haunting, like, your reaching out for help. Very brave of you to do so. You are very open about your melancholy, and your crimson pain. Admitting the problem is half the battle.
    Hope your writing is a better help for you to release your pain, it is truly a gift you have.
    Keep penning.
    Excellent poem.
