Cold Dark Corner


Published: March 2009

There's a cold dark corner
in the back of my room,
it speaks to me
and says I'm coming for you.

As I lie on my bed
in the fetal position,
my eyes are closed
hoping and wishing.

Maybe that one day
my dreams will come true,
that I don't have to be here
so down and blue.

The corner keeps talking
about how I'm going to die,
all I can do
is lie there and cry.

As the corner gets closer
and takes me in,
my soul starts to burn
as so does my skin.

My bones shall lie there
turning to dust,
my bed surrounding
nothing but rust.

I love poetry, writing it and reading it, especially ones that I can relate to. This poem hit me in a good way. Blake Duffy, whoever you are, you are amazing keep it up!

I've been suffering from depression and trying to find a way to express my feelings through art. When I do, I do so by painting, drawing, writing stories, and even dancing to try an make myself happy, also listening to positive music. Even when I jam to Love Myself or Confident even Walking On Sunshine I still go back to crying in the dark. These poems I read are proof that other people feel the same way and I'm not weird.

This poem was extremely disturbing but like most poems that I have read and that I like...it's very good and you are very talented. And don't take this the wrong way but you need to get some help if you have not already.
