Another Empty Soul - Poem by David Harris

I find myself on a slippery slope,
heading for a bottomless pit.
My heart has given up,
on what it longed for.
There is no excitement
or up lift there.
Just sadness and sorrow
to look at and stare.
An empty vessel
on a sea of dreams,
no outstretched hand
to drag me out of there.
Down I go into darkness,
the light above gets dimmer
as I go on my ride downward.
I am not looking back,
too many broken dreams there.
The darkness will soon engulf me,
and then I will be gone.
Who will sing my praises?
No one I fear.
I will be another empty soul,
on a sea that is already full,
too aimless
to find any way back.

    You will have me in tears soon David. I felt as if I was descending the page, getting sadder and sadder. Very well expressed, getting quite depressed. Very deep feelings here.
    Love Ernestine XXX
