Misery

Misery

A Poem by Sweet
"

Despite the title and subject this is not a sad poem, not for me.

"

Misery, my muse,
 
My heart is heavy, with feelings and emotions.
My mind is scattered, going through the motions.

There’s so much I want to tell you, so much I want to share,
But I get lost in all my thoughts, the anxiety is hard to bear.

When life falls apart, you are there for me.
You listen to my cry and respond to my plea.

My dear friend who keeps me company,
Whenever I’m drowning in a sea of agony.

Although, sometimes you keep your distance,
I always seem to seek you, asking for your assistance.

 

Whenever I find you, I hold on to you,
Fretting to feel lonely again, I stick to you like glue.

Whenever I’m frail, don't let me go, hold me tight.
Wrap me up with your presence and be my might.

 

Will you stay by my side and cope with me through hard times?

Will you say “Yes, always” or tell me “No, only sometimes”?

 

Tell me dear Misery, how long has it been?

How much longer do you plan on making my head spin?

                                                      

I’ll keep holding on to you as you keep my dreams ablaze.

Oh my sweet Misery, be one with me, now and always.

This is a very well written subject, but I would like to point out that Misery fuels many poetic writers. You've taken this idea, the subject, and you've breathed a life into it that's very interesting to read but I only fear that it does verge on become a cliche, instead of the standalone piece you've written. I'm not saying it's bad, I'm just trying to let you know that, honestly, it's a good poem but it could almost become generic. Perhaps you could add to this piece by, instead of following an AA format, you follow an ABA format. It might be a little difficult, but I think it could possibly enhance the work you have. But, you're the writer and if you feel like it's a perfectly good piece, then it is. Thanks for the read request and thank you, definitely, for the chance to read your work. ^_^

At the beginning & the end, I was very much aware that your words addressed a personification of "Misery" . . . but thru the middle, I forgot this was written to "Misery" and I was starting to think of the object of the message as being a real true friend that the narrator was kinda addicted to. Then I got to the end, reminding me about "Misery" being the friend, & that's when it really popped, the way some people are addicted to misery. This is one of the best descriptions of how that can happen. A very wise description of people who stay steeped in misery, done with compassion & clarity.
