Poem: All Shall Be Well

These days
I am lost
Drowning in grief
Consumed by pain
Darkened by despair.
My heart is aching
With cold, cold loneliness;
My guts are clenched
Pain fills my core.
Dreams and hopes
Are shredded and scattered;
I am utterly alone.
Had hoped beyond hope
That this time would be different;
What a fool I am!
I no longer want to feel this pain.
Want someone to share the load
Can’t find ears to listen.
Baring my heart
Only seems to leave my heart broken.
So I push my body and mind to the limit
To the point of utter exhaustion
Trying to drown the demons out.
I want so badly to lay this burden down
Can’t bring myself to do the deed.
So I face each day
As best I can
No longer caring
If I see the end;
Part of me wishes
Each breath to be my last
Can’t see much worth
In this lonely life of mine.
And yet
Despite all that I have done
All that I have failed to do
Despite all reason and experience
Some small spark of hope remains
I think
In the end
All shall be well.
