A Poem by Nathan Durham

I wrote this one when I was bored.

I wake up everyday, to put on my fake smile
You look at me, and see that I am glad
Keeping up appearances for you is such a trial
All that is happy is gradually riddled with sad

I take delight in the sunshine that you bring
It's not like I intend for my mood to decline
I just want to hold you and take in everything
But my negative emotions begin to stir and combine

Inside of me a confused storm viciously rages
I am slowly getting tempted to surrender to my fears
Demons of the past are released from their cages
I am currently unscathed, but my eyes form tears

I want to leave this darkened reality behind
This strain on us leaves me damaged beyond repair
My fear of losing you is corruption of my mind
Thoughts wander further into a swamp of despair

This blackness inside of me is taking control
I reach out for you, but I am taken away
Corruption replaces you in making me whole
As I live without you for yet another lonely day
