The Other Half

The Other Half

A Poem by minisla

The Other Half

 

Feel it playing tricks again

Feelings wander too and fro

Uncontrollable emotions

Morbid thoughts vaguely

 

Often hint towards self harm

Feel powerless to quash

Thoughts of sorrow embrace

Putting my sanity to the test

 

Rarely suggests happiness

An eagerness to fold the page

Which one I wonder is next

Anger rarely shows its face

 

Almost reduced to tears

Borne from all my worst fears

What will tomorrow bring

Sadness for so many years

 

Betrayal a strong residual force

Refusing physical side peace

Funny thing I worry for no one

Worried for no one only me

  

Off to lay my head down

Turn the switch off to see

How I will cope as daylight breaks

Guess what has to be must be

Very strong emotional poem. Another poem that many people can relate to through lifes experiences. It tells of depression and darkness where a person only sees the world in black and white, without colour. Going to bed and seeing what the next day brings, leaves the reader wondering and brings on thoughts of more sadness and gloom. But there is hope, this is where the repetition breaks and life changes for the better. We all have this in our subconcious.
This is a poem that is thought provoking and well written to convey a strong theme that stirs the emotions.

Darkly absorbing, it's like a black cloud that comes along every now and again to hover over the subject and rain down all kind of untold miseries !

An interesting psychological poem, good rhyme and flow, very well penned again !

Hit the nail on the head Tom thanks
Your words have been used to convey a powerful, overwhelming feeling of sadness and numbness.
I think you captured that beautifully and succinctly. Good write. :)
