Blackness - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Burying myself so as not to feel pain hiding just underneath
the surface.
Tears stinging my eyes, wanting me to release them from the
pain of despair.
Looking away, daring not to feel anything, overcome by
emotional sorrow and pushing it below me.
There are no ways of expression left to me at this moment,
because I do not want anyone to see my face turn suddenly sad.
Slipping silently away, jostling feelings so I don't have to
deal with them right now.
Darkness looms within me, spreading it's blackness to all ends
of inner being.
Heading towards the door of another dimension, away from
reality, I lock myself in the realm of imagination so as not
to have to face the world today.
