This living prison
This facade of comfort
It means nothing
Lonely
Abandoned
Every knock and rattle, every whisper of a distant door a glimmer of hope
No longer breathing I count the seconds
The moment never comes
There is no joy here
No respite from despair
The disappointment cuts even deeper
The brilliant pain blossoms forth anew
The petals tinged with fear, self hatred
With doubt
I wallow in my grief
Self imposed and justified

The horrors life can and will throw at a person usually can't even hold a candle to the "self-imposed" things we will put ourselves through.  Spent many years, by choice, in my own self-imposed prison.  This poem resonates well with me.  Welcome to PiP.

"The brilliant pain blossoms forth anew

~Gorgeous images here, petals of somber, read in a hush.

In trials of all nature, I think we release some of our pain as you've written yours here, but we also learn to heal from it as well. You are amongst friends here

Warmest Welcome's to you, Angela! I am so happy to see a new talent here in dark, your pen has made a grand entrance. I hope you will continue sharing!

Thank you both! I am greatful to be among friends here and even more so to have a place to share my musings! This was written in a moment of all consuming despair that I had created in my own head. I am my own worse enemy -_- but it inspired some beautiful introspection. Thank you again for your kind words and input.
