A Tortured Mind And A Shattered Heart - Poem by Yuki Hurigashi

This mind is full of
Misery,
Distress,
Mutilation,
And Torture.
A mind that was once
beautiful and bright,
Now dark and tortured.
A heart that was once kind and whole,
Now dark and shattered.
Shattered with a slim possibility
of finding the pieces.
Each clear shard is a memory,
a piece of my love,
my kindness.
Each shard stained with my blood,
my pain and sorrow.
This mind and heart are almost
Irreparable.
What seem to be separate physically,
are what is working together for a common goal.
The common goal of my pain, misery and distress.
This misery of mind and heart have overwhelmed this feeble mind.
The sense of security seems to have disappeared
To another dimension.
I am starting to become numb to the world I once knew and loved.
Will I ever to be able to fill in the emptiness inside me?
Or will this darkness consume the last little bit of myself,
The last piece of myself I have hung onto forever?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this being in dark place. Me feeling alone in the world, not understanding what to do. No one there to love or guide me in the right direction.

    Whenever Depression rears its ugly head and one hits lowest ebb, one must strive to hold on to Faith, since Faith keeps those that keep the faith. A lovely piece of poetry depicting one of the darkest sides of life. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
