Insanity Lurks

Poetry By: celeron2

In the throes of darkness, insanity lurks.
Everyone,at some stage in their lives go through some sort of depression,this poem summarises the depth of helplessness that some people feel when forced into dark periods.

Shadows of Darkness,

Here i am,

I thought i could escape,

But no one can.

Through the heat of the fires,

Of Lucifer's Hell,

I ran and ran,

But stumbled and fell.

How could this happen?

Why am i here?

I've never known this anger,

Or torture or fear.

Shadows of Darkness,

I'm pleading, let me go,

Let go of your grip,

Don't kill my soul.

No? then take me,

I've no energy left to run,

There's no point in screaming,

Because no one will come.

So here i am,

Unwillingly offering my soul,

Giving myself up,

To something so foul.
