A Poem by Penny Dreadful

Find the memories intertwined
Once upon a time you sang with glee
Not a song arises from your voice since they
Tore your soul away.

Cry the tears not left behind
Try and find yourself in this century
Nothing passes through your mind but pain these days
So you drift away.

I can identify with every word. especially the final line '..so you drift away.' excellent depiction of the descent into depression.

Ending wrapped up nicely.

This honestly speaks on so many levels, it's not funny. I understand these feelings, too well... Outstanding poetic expression. Magnificent! The ending is pure Brilliance!
