Toxic Melancholy

Toxic Melancholy

A Poem by Ezekiel Silver

Year poem was published: 2014

     A pain so great and tumultuous,
         life becomes a blur of tears.
     Depression holds a tight cold grip,
         choking out the pale soul.

     The cursed life of a feeble heart,
         too traumatic to endure.
     Madness drowns the pure mind,
         numbing the humanity away.

     A longing for death to finally come,
         to bring forth relief.
     The only true cure for an ancient poison,
         toxic melancholy.
