Krystal Brewington

How I Feel Deep Inside....

I'm behind prison walls,

Shackled and chained,

Trapped, with no way out.

You have sucked the life out of me,

I have no interest in anything.

 

My life is so dull,

Darkness is all I see.

Marks and bruises cover me,

All from where you hit me.

 

My life is so full of Misery,

So very bad,

That I'd rather die,

Then live one more day this way.

 

My heart is broken,

Like a puzzle in a million pieces,

Scattered on the floor,

Trying to piece it back together once more.

 

I feel like,

I'm drowning in a sea,

Trying to find

My way back to shore.

 

But because my life

is so full of darkness,

I see light no more,

It seems so close, but so far away,

 

If I could just find my way to the door,

I'd escape from those prison walls,

And I'd finally be free, forever more.

    I can really feel your emotions in this piece. Might I suggest when referencing a number in an emotional poem it's sometimes better to use a hyperbole instead. "100 pieces" come on Krystal! Try "A million pieces" or something to really make the reader feel your pain. All in all good work though :) Great use of negative energy to create something artistic!
