A Lonely Descent
Lost in the shadows of my mind,
I descend into the depths of sorrow,
A darkness that's hard to unwind,
A weight that I'll carry tomorrow.
My heart is heavy, my soul is tired,
And every breath feels like a struggle,
The hope I once had has expired,
Leaving me feeling lost and muddled.
I'm drowning in a sea of sadness,
Trying to find my way to the light,
But the waves of despair are madness,
Dragging me down with all their might.
I close my eyes and let it consume,
This feeling that I can't escape,
My heart aches with a deepening gloom,
And the tears begin to reshape.
I'm lost in the deep and dreamy,
A place where my heart can rest,
But this depression is so screamy,
It's hard to feel my best.
So I'll take it one day at a time,
Trusting that I'll find my way,
Out of this darkness and into the sublime,
Where the light will lead me astray.
