Poem about Sadness

The inspiration behind this poem revolves around a time in one of my personal relationships. At the time things were really stressful and I was really unhappy. I felt I had no one to turn to and to escape from the hell I was in.

Falling From Darkness

Falling from darkness
To a place I don't know
Everything's moving with no place to go
I feel so alone and scared
As I fall, I wonder, "Is anyone there?"

As the days and nights pass right by
I count the nights I just lay and cry
Falling from faith, falling from love
Please, is there anyone up above?

Never did I want to feel like this,
When the answer lies with the slit of the wrist
My mind is racing to find another solution
Before it's too late and I'm just an illusion.

No one knows how I really feel
I just want him to hold me and help me heal
As I fall, I feel the rain
I begin to think that may be he isn't the key to ease my pain.

  • Wonderful poem Anne. Perfectly captures how I'm feeling at the moment. Fighting a losing battle with myself at the moment :(

  • I enjoyed this poem because the tone is not sarcastic but serious and the word choice was beautifully written.
