Misery (Writing as Black Angel)

Misery (Writing as Black Angel)

A Poem by Just Charles

Misery is a poem about the mind that is slipping into a very dark, and dangerous place.





I am slipping deeper and deeper

into this asylum.

I call it my mind.


How do I escape my own mind?

A five minute reprieve...

Long enough to catch a fresh breath.

I promise to go back when my time is up.


But the sun sets on my optimism

and the dusks of reality cascade over me.


I am slipping deeper and deeper

into this windowless room.

I call it my misery.
