Ms. Sadness

Ms. Sadness

A Poem by sinNsincerity

Fell in love with

the sadness,

which later,

became my passion.

The black became my friend.

Bested by the

light I was given.

So I caved in,

sorta like a caveman.

Then I died

again when she

glanced in.

I asked myself,

“should we dance

again?”

I couldn’t make up my mind so,

I fell back into the black

and wandered through

Wonders.

And now we’re back here,

falling in love with sadness

again.

So mote it be

It's hard to have a skill that relies so heavily on trauma, in all of its forms, to produce work that doesn't seem plastic. It's a good piece, I liked it. I think the harder emotions yield beautiful work. Of course, this calls into question the standard of beauty - but, that's a longer post. ^_^

:'( This is very beautiful in a melancholy type of way. I love the darkness. And while i was reading it, I don't know if you wrote it to be like this, but it was almost like a female rock song. Beautiful

Thank you for reading and thinking so Nyxia. Didn't write it as a song, I jut use a lot of literary .. read more
I agree. I wrote something similar years ago.. something like I allowed sadness (which was a she to me too) to crawl around inside me and I just a dark shroud to protect her... It is so easy to be befriended by sadness and darkness and to let it settle in comfortably.. to allow it to seize us completely.. and dare I say, inspire us artists all the more for it?? It is easier to cozy up to sadness than to defy it and overcome it. This is definitely an honest piece. I like it.

That's pretty awesome Alexa, I too will protect her.
Woe is thee--
where will it end?
Does it continue and grow
with wonder and love...
will the light win?

"Fell in love with
the sadness,
which later,
became my passion." - First off, I absolutely love how plainly you've written this. It's not only relatable, but very comforting in the way of giving tragedy an identity.

"The black became my friend." - I really like the sudden abruptness of this sentence.

"Bested by the
light I was given." - this is a lovely sentence.

"So I caved in,
sorta like a caveman.
Then I died
again when she
glanced in." - I found it interesting and functional to add a bit of humor, or something representing that it
was attempted. It kind of gives me the image of someone who is heartbroken and trying to laugh it off or make light of their pain.

"I asked myself,
“should we dance
again?”
I couldn’t make up my mind so,
I fell back into the black
and wandered through
Wonders." - I found this absolutely beautiful. Relatable in a way that is hard to put into words and yet very keenly felt.

"And now we’re back here,
falling in love with sadness
again.
So mote it be" - again, you've expressed this in a wonderful way. The idea of falling in love with sadness is something so real and comforting to those who have done so, intentionally or not. The ending makes it a prayer or a spell and all the more bittersweet.

Overall, I loved this piece top to bottom and I think you've done a solid job on getting both your ideas and emotion across. Too often I read poems and simply see them, but I definitely felt this piece. Thank you much for sharing and keep up the good work!
