Inside I am but a mass
of tumultuous emotion.
My hearts breath shortened
by itís relentless sobbing.
Tears merging with tears
Flooding the ocean of humanity
struggling to survive within me.
Generations of sorrow have
served, Only to fuel my
Inability to trust, and
dampen my desire to love.
My exhaustion is complete.
I am now only an emptiness,
A void of confusion.
Do not dare to venture
within my heart
For your soul in turn will be
crushed by the great
sadness it will discover-
I may be enveloped in loneliness,
Swaddled in faithlessness
and content in lovelessness,
But I will never be merciless.
So hear me now and
heed my warnings fellow man.
Pass me by in the street
Do not gaze into my dark eyes-
It is your soul I wish to spare.
My heart is frozen for an eternity
as inviting as death itself.
Walk on,
Leave me to pity myself
in my great sorrow.
Leave me be.
Leave me.

Leave you be?

Sorry, smiling here, not gonna do that.

You've portrayed gloom and depression so acutely I felt gravity increase as I read.

And like the poem says, I too, tend to push people away when I'm down.

Welcome to Passions!

I hope to read more from you soon.

Oh Tourniquet , you echo my very thoughts . .

My exhaustion is complete.
I am now only an emptiness,
A void of confusion.
Do not dare to venture
within my heart

yes, we are all like this at one time or another
and yes, this is the wrong place to be to be left alone
Beautiful writing and Welcome!

Great thought behind your words, I pity who would make you feel that way. Perhaps certain events even, for everyone in their life feels down, unless theyre "high on life"...and i think we all kno what needs to happen to them, dark fiery pits await them, haha, sorry. anyways, keep writing, good poem.
