A Poem by Dark Beauty

Depth of emotions rising forth
ravage my mind with past heartache
stagnation untwisted and sheaths fall away

Sadness overwhelms me and I fall to my knees
quivering with anxiety
knowing I can not fight this rising

I pray for strength to get up and not be knocked down
by this no more
I dust my heart off
yearning for healing and closure
I welcome death

No more fight upon my soul for I have completly let it all go

Well this certainly reaches out and eviscerates the reader with a rubber spatula. Wonderfully written and evokes powerful emotions.

Your guts, a hollow pit in the bowels of the earth sounding "Hell!" up a precipice of self-termination.

Very well written

Did you mean closure? (healing and closer)
Excellent write. I watched a friend let go, and cross over. It truly is a spiritual experience. Beautifully, and accurately written words here.
If this is a rough draft, it's the finest i've ever read.
