Made of Stone

Made of Stone

A Poem by zwartenkot

Everyday is the same
The darkness appears
Playing the same game
Whispering in my ear

No matter how much you drink
No matter how many pills you swallow
Those dark thoughts you think
You'll always feel hollow

This misery is to much
I can't take another day
My body is cold from the darkness’ touch
I just want to fly away

But how can you fly with wings made of stone?
I'm forever stuck to the ground
Destined to be alone
Hiding in the background

Just a shadow behind glass
Watching the world go by
A caged outcast
Looking up at the sky

Longing to feel freedom
The wind beneath my wings
But life can't give me a reason
I'm stuck listening to the birds sing

This downward spiral
Is spinning to fast
What's the point of fighting for survival
When every breath could be my last

I've thought about it more than once
Because what's the point in living when
I'm the one that the darkness hunts
When life has become just a burden

With wings made of stone
You're destined to lose hope
I'd rather throw myself into the unknown
Than spend another day trying to cope

Today is the day
All of this will be in the past
The darkness is finally going away
This breath shall be my last

I chiseled away my wings
So I could travel through the sky
Now I am the one who sings
Good-bye good-bye

There was no way else to break free
It doesn't feel so bad anymore, being alone
Life obviously didn't want me
Because after all how can you fly with wings made of stone?

Depression and loneliness are truly awful, to say the least. But you are far from alone. Other in this world. Do feel exactly the same as you. Use your poetry to help express those bad days and times. And other relate and feel for you. Best to take each day as it comes. And be kind to you. Do nice things for you. That makes you smile. From watching a good movie you really enjoy. Or having a nice meal you like. To even just expressing how you feel on hear and getting it out. I admire you and applaud you for sharing your inner self out. I also suffer from the darkness at times.

I can definitely relate to this poem. depression is hard to overcome and get past. it takes time to heal and some people don't understand that. I love how you said you have wings of stone-the heaviness of depression. beautifully written and relatable. great poem (:

The poem talks lot about the burden writer is carrying. The poem actually reminded of a song called this my least favorite life - true detective season 2
