In this abyss of darkness I dwell,
And to me it's worse than living hell.
Pursued by pictures of the past,
I'm haunted by the hate I harbour,
For memories that will forever last.

In this abyss of darkness I reside,
Though I won't run and I won't hide.
Disturbed by distractions of the day,
I'm forlorn by the future I fear,
But wisdom is a virtue they say.

In this abyss of darkness I live,
It's a place only I can survive.
Subjugated by souls of sadness,
I'm restricted by the regret I relay,
On thoughts of foolish madness.
This was inspired by a comment left by :iconelle-julianna:. Internet on laptop is ddown again, so have to make do submitting poems via my blackberry. I'll try and see if I can use one of my local library's computers, especially for the maintenance of my fledgling group.

it very sad but quite beautiful.

Thanks, my aim was to write something that was as you put sad, but beautiful at the same time. I thought maybe a haunting spect came to my mind while I wrote it. But it's been a couple of days now since I wrote it, and I was severely depressed at the time of writing.
