Fight The Dark.

Fight The Dark.

A Poem by Simran Kewlani

The blood spilled on the tiled floor,
There was pain she was still left to endure.

The screams were loud and clear,
Building up the fear.

She whimpered but didn't cure,
Wanting to leave the wounds still pure.

She resorted to self harm to forget about her demons,
Little did she know, it wasn't meant to be a win win.

hmmm interesting - where did this line of thought spring from?

being one who chooses to bathe in the light I find it hard to review your words here ... I guess we all see light and dark in different ways ... and also we all choose different ways of embracing the purest gift of existence XX

i think WC is a forum we all need to protect and enjoy :))) love ya Simran!
wow. Just wow. This one is dark, vivid, and powerful. I hate to think of anyone in that much mental anguish or pain that they'd feel the need to cut themselves to escape their torment. I can't imagine it. I've been in utter desperate torment, and I ran to my prayers and my church to seek solace in prayer and sacrifice. Catholics believe that we can offer up our pain for others' healing. It lifts our own pain and gives it a higher purpose. However, I understand that others don't share these beliefs. A well written and descriptive bit of imagery Simran. Thank you.

She resorted to self harm to forget about her demons,

That's great one dear friend.
...And that's the true spirit.
Great penning dear.
