I can feel myself sliding back into the dark pit
Darkness enveloping me from within
Mind closing down into its own cocoon of sadness
Peace and quiet I long for
Can’t stand the noise it echoes in my head,
So woolly I cant think
I lay in bed, the warmth holding me within
It’s quiet and safe in the sleeping world
Worries invade me during the day
Drowning me with despair
Can’t find solutions, cant find relief?
Mind is too black, motivation is elsewhere
Loneliness invades my soul
Life takes on no meaning
Curling up inside and out
Life is hard and callous and cruel, it’s wearing me down
Blackness everywhere, no light seeping from anywhere
I want the peace, I long for the quiet
I need to go to the woods or sea,
To feel Mother Nature seep into me
To feel the comforting arms of love hold onto me
Of this I’ve never found.
So in and out of darkness I find myself
In the dark pit of despair.
