The Path Alone

The Path Alone

A Poem by Moth Phoenix


Arms out by my side, and my eyes open wide. 

Bleeding these tears that keep me alive, I feel the aches and pains. 

My head is numb and my mind speaks a thousand words,

don’t release me from my chains. I sit here and think, ponder, and tell,

while I walk the black forest, and just wander. 

An endless path I see no end, but a light, a light over the horizon,

one more push cause I’m still tryin. 

The tress are black and they hug me close, another mark is that I’ve chose. 

I drink the moon in and listen to the wind, but somehow I can’t, can’t understand my thoughts. 

I scream, but nothing comes. I talk but only lies escape. 

Am I horrible? Beaten down  and bloody? 

No honey, wake up, and learn you’re worth more. 

I cut



but sometimes

It's been a rough week, so I felt like I needed to get some feelings "on paper"

A very descriptive piece of the battle within. Great work!

Wow... I've been here. I sit alone in the darkness and look up at the sky a lot more than I'd like to admit. I know this feeling all too well.

But , you have to keep fighting. You have to keep trying. Yes. You ARE worth it.❤
