Silent rage
a Dark monster
feeding at my gut
eating at my heart
wearing me away to nothing

Just take the pill
just go to bed
close your eyes
fall fast asleep
Escape the pain
forget he's gone
forget that you are all alone

Green with jealousy and anger
foot in mouth to save for shame
just take the pill
forget, forget
forget that you're invisible
forget that you're not wanted
forget that you let yourself go
no longer beautiful
forget that you ever held love in your heart

Go to sleep
don't dream, just sleep
don't cry, don't scream
don't think
numb yourself
don't feel
embrace the pain
embrace the hatred
just take the pill
rust ingloriously
and die.

I feel your despair...Thanx for sharing. Hope is most often found when we finally see we are not alone.

For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...

I thought this was truly is the epitome of a great poem..a piece of your heart, your soul whatever. I loved this one. I've been there, last summer but I was thinking about finding ANYTHING to ease my suffering...it wasn't pleasant.
Thanks
Izzy

This is one of your best. But very hard to read as the emotions you write about are so close to the surface. It's a raw, angry piece..as it was meant to be but it's also sad and touching!
