Swallowing Darkness

Swallowing Darkness

A Poem by Emo_Cat

She lays in the swallowing darkness of her room,

with the radio on,

music bringing back painfully happy and heart wrenching memories.  The boy that she loved,

shot her through the heart.  

Lyrics of songs, lyrics that hold little to no meaning to others,

but mean the world to her.  

Nothing has come close to,

easing the ache,

the pain.

Try as she might,

she can no longer conceal what is inside.

This is almost too much for her.

She doesn’t know how much longer she can hold on.

Teenage angst is a powerful force. I think if they tried to map it out with a mathematical formula, It would glow brighter than the sun.

Busy work and creative output are strong medication. A supplement you are devouring quite well. Grow strong, grow well.

Thanks for sharing.

Pain and sadness can grow larger and more painful. Sometime we must re-adjust our life and leave the bad things behind. I felt the struggle in your words. Thank you my friend for sharing the excellent poetry.

The part about the 'song lyrics having little meaning to others but to her it means the world', I really related to that. I felt like i, was once again, put into the girls shoes. I know that feeling. This really spoke to me. I loved this.
