A moment of regrets.....


      A moment of regrets....


This tunnel you caged me in,
This darkness reigned.
Holds me tight, no chain nor clasp, but emotional ties hold fast.
I am lost, no way to see out of this darkened place.
A tunnel, no light, no feel for sharp or sight.
For years I've lived this enclosed existence.
Trapped inside, screaming to be released.
The manakin that walks my stead,
Clowns mask, jokers dress, an imitating imposter.
How can i escape and reach myself,
Be the person I was born to be.
Why did i let him chain me in,
No fight i fought , just rage at my own weakness.
Me inside, lost inside that shell.
Love helped, but love alone won't win this war.
I could be so much more, see so much more.
Identify and highlight so much more.
The Darkness wraps it arms around tight,
I feel it's hold, I feel it's bite.
No smell, no taste, no appetite sight,
Like Cimmerian folk who feed on light.

    although it sounds pretty obvious that these demons aren't leaving you alone and tied up in a bundle of twisted thought. how I imagine to find a cure for you and others alike. you're writing is really beautiful yet so sad. I wish you well but please don't stop writing.

        That emotional chain has let you write a very good poem and that poem has seen the light so the light is still there so follow your words into the light. Good write.
