The Taste Of Despair - Poem by Jazzy Davies

Crushing melancholia enveloping me,
who put this heavy weight around my heart?
The familiar pit looms, inexpressible and grey.
Twisting immeasurably, painful and hard,
stomach knotting, laced with heat filled nails.
Sanity as fragile as glass, soul split into shards.

Everlasting midnight, viscous and black,
memories, guilt and grief converge
will life ever lighten and get back on track?
Crumpled emotions cresting to a surge,
searching for a glint, fighting the dark.
Overwhelming pain, realities merge.

How did it get like this?
I don't know this stranger.
Leading me on with a judas kiss,
promising sweet release, no danger.
But there is no choice, so take the risk,
and ride that scarlet rainbow now, don't linger.
