Genre: Acrostic Couplet spelling “Daily Revelations”.

This piece is centralized around: depression, loneliness, hurt, and emotional demise.

Deprived of affection and a sense of belonging
 
one retires to a sanctuary of isolation.
 
Arraigned by the acute pain of rejection
 
the walls become his or her world.
 
Indicted with selfishness and antisocial behavior
 
sleep is the best defense and life sentence.
 
Levied with incessant worries about tomorrow
 
sense falls to numbness like a baby lulled to sleep.
 
Yearning for warmth and the need to be heard
 
one contemplates talking to inanimate objects.
 
Reprehended for vocalizing one’s outlook
 
of the world, silence becomes the decorum.
 
Encapsulated with grief, mobility
 
is running errands for survival only.
 
Vilified for one’s depressive state
 
smiles are just an anti wrinkle cream.
 
Engrossed with sadness from one’s state
 
causes palpitation with the slightest change.
 
Larking with dark thoughts of an early exit
 
becomes one’s favorite pass-time.
 
Adjourned from engaging in sweet nothings
 
estranges one around so many happy faces.
 
Truncated moments of free expression
 
becomes the only method of communication.
 
Incapacitated with anger and denial
 
one falters to bitterness and dismay.
 
Obliterated from the lives of close ones
 
confines one to being minuscule.
 
Neap tide for once is just a moment of rebellion
 
against reality’s gravity pulling one down.
 
Susceptibility to darkness is a daily revelation
 
only experienced by ones who face mishaps alone.
