Melancholy

 

Suffocating,

Smothering,

Enfolding

In gloom;

Melancholy

Madness,

Feelings of doom.

Persistent,

Piercing,

Painful

At best,

Steadfastly

Smouldering,

Burning

The rest.

Haltingly

Hating

The thoughts

In my head,

Blackening

Darkness,

The days

That I dread.

Entrapped,

Imprisoned,

A life put

On hold;

Deserted,

Despised

By the dreams

I’d been sold.

Blanketing,

Numbing

Anything

Good;

Beaten back,

Shaken,

Defeat it

I should.

Masking it,

Hiding it,

A game of

Pretence;

Battling

The feeling,

It’s making

No sense.

Capture,

Entrap it,

Shut it

Away;

Dumb it out,

Gag it,

I’ve thrown it --

Okay?
