A short poem about being stuck between hope and despair.

The night swept in, almost unnoticed to you.
You see the day and the blue skies above you.
I tried so hard to see that too.
Whilst I’m missing you’ll pull through.
There’s no knowing where I’ll go or what I’ll do.
I have a blazing war inside me that I can’t quite see past or pursue.

My invisible enemies want me to leap to the depths of my despair,
And lead me to the gates of hell.
I have to keep myself bound.
I only wish to be free of my ugly selfishness and my mind, 
So I can tread in the light and walk alongside my true self.
I need to know what I’d find and how to be kind, I can’t move or unwind.

I am shaken by death but haunted by my surroundings.
You don’t see what I see, but I see clearly.
I see the darkness that becomes me, 
And I feel it rage through my body.
I have the urge to shout,
But silence always overcomes me.
I am without a doubt a chilling anomaly.

Nice poem about inner struggle. I like the uneven rhyme pattern.
