tethered soul -a poem of despair and my 500th post

I'm drowning in my own abyss
I cry out for help
No one hears me

Darkness surrounds me
When will it end?

I start to drift off
giving in to the 
bottomless chasm of nothingness

In another life
there was light
and laughter

Where did that go?
The silence is ringing in my ears
Nothing makes sense

When did I give up?

They say that when we are at our most trying times, is when our creativity blossoms.  I wrote this a few minutes ago, after pondering on events that transpired in my life recently.  Sometimes, our conscience reminds us that we are human and we make mistakes.  And other times, our conscience reminds us that grave and haste decisions, cut deeper than we could ever imagine.  -For those wondering why my jibberish is about, not to worry.  All is well. I'm just beating myself up over something that happened in my life recently.  We are our own worst critic, for sure.  Anyway, what a way to celebrate my 500th post, eh?  Do me a favor, if you pray, please do so for the Houston Texans tomorrow.  Game time is 3:30 p.m. (Central).  A win is the ONLY option!!!  Please and thank y'all! (Heh, a little Texas drawl for you)

Robin- I think you're right. Beaten up is exactly how I feel. -Thanks for your well wishes!

Israel- Hey! So glad you're still around somewhere! ;) Thanks sweets, I am in the process of doing so. I'm glad you did and are well. When are you writing more jokes? I miss your posts.

There's a world of difference between feeling alone, and being alone. It's a world that may make little difference in those dark moments, but means that when you look up, you will see us all here, cheering for you.

Congrats on the 500th!
I understand how you feel. It's not that we want to wallow. It's just that the feelings can be so intense. Know that others DO understand and that you are NOT alone. You are a talented poet and your work is appreciated as it takes true talent to get all that emotion into one defined space.
