Fallen From Despair

Fallen From Despair

A Poem by Sheik
"

A depressed girl puts all her hope in a boy she loves to save her from the dark world she is trapped in.

"

Verse 1

For such a long time

I have longed for

A way to free myself,

And yet I now find

I can see no more

The darkness I’ve known so well.

 

Verse 2

Looking through these eyes,

Everything’s glassy

As the sun starts to set.

Then I start to cry

Tears I’ll never need,

Raining down where they shall rest.

 

Verse 3

In a dream last night

My sole guide was there,

Leading me to the door.

It opens to light

Before we enter

Onto the pearl white floor.

 

Chorus

Have I fallen from despair

Into this new world

Where all is what it seems?

Life had been a lying mirror

Until I was turned

Back into the real me.

 

Bridge

Are you still there my friend?

I have returned to you.

Please help me to understand.

For you showed me the truth.

 

Ending

I left despair

Just to come here,

My friend.

the deeper meaning, maybe she's alone and sad then she gets better but with pills, or cutting so she wonders if she's really better or if it's just a trick, the glassy could easily be tears, or it could be that she sees the world as a reflection, backwards and twisted.

Everything has always been hidden away, adjusting to freeing yourself from what you once were is a transition that is slow and or glassy...freeing as in suicide? Life was despair.

I was drawn in by the opening verse and I appreciated it. Thanks for the read.

Its glassy, because it can shatter so easily? Still a brilliantly written piece

Love the message of an unclear world because of her depression. It really makes it obvious that it is, in fact, a serious mental illness. Awesome job on this!

Very nice... Emotions distorting the view... Finding the way back. Clarity again perhaps? Enjoyed this thoroughly. Being a musician I'm curious to hear your take on the melody... it immediately inspired a few ideas. So, very nicely done. Thank you for sharing.

this is beautiful and glassy could mean different things for different people, some glass is clear, some is dirty, some shatters in many pieces, and some shatter into only a few big pieces. but this is beautifully written, keep up the good work
