Dark night of the soul

Moonless night of the heart

Blackest thoughts of the mind

Tempting us to fall apart...

 

 

Quiet solitude, silent lips

All you do is feel...

Pain is solid ground

Love is fleeting..

 

 

Eyes opened, blurry images

Tears fall down like rivers

Into the oceans...

 

 

Breath comes hard and raspy

Lungs burn from the effort

Dry sobs escape your lips...

 

 

The mirror grieves your reflection

Red rimmed swollen eyes,

Skin, sallow and pale...

 

 

Hands over face do nothing to hide

Your disturbed and distressed emotions,

Your disgrace...

 

 

And then....

 

 

Feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders

Your body breaks down and you fall on your knees

And in desperation, in despair

You look towards heaven and whisper a prayer.
