Depths Of My Hell - Poem by Nichole Pettit

Never feel safe
Always trouble in my path
Worries racking my mind
No matter how I try to leave them behind
My brain is steady on rewind

Leaving me in a state
Wondering if its me or is it really late
Sleep doesn't come
My heart beats fast like a drum
Scared in the dark all alone
Wishing to find a light
In the darkness of my mind

In a never ending tunnel of darkness
Listening for a sound
To let me out and into the light that surrounds
Me, just so I can live again
Breath again
Never to have to look over my shoulder again.

No light in the darkness
Sounds echo in the night
Making me jump with fright
Still hoping for that light

Wondering what happened
Knowing that I used to hold one tight
One that was bright

My very own
Never alone
Oh, how bright it shone
Like the sun on a golden throne
Even by myself, I was never alone

Something always following me
Day and night,
Always giving me a fright
Wishing for the brightness of my light
Long gone is my light
Never to shine bright

In the light of day
Is when I hope and pray
In the depth of the night
I dream and scream
The noise racking my brain
Driving me beyond insane

Waiting for the bright sunny light
After long dark stormy rain
With every storm a little more life
Washed away
More pain to sway
My heart away
From those I love
Flying away like a dove
High above in the sky
Not knowing the truth from a lie
Just knowing how to fly

I just want to be free
To fly like the dove
Find the love
I once had,
To find
My light
Make it shine bright
To drown the sound
That racks my brain
To let go of all the strain
Just let the pain drain away
Find my soul in the depths of my hell

And breath again
Hope again.
Find my heart
And love again.
