I gave birth to you in the darkest times, nurtured you in the depth of my broken heart. You’re the depression I created. the Pain I can’t run away from. When i thought I was free, you were hiding behind a blinding veil of love. Killing me with kindness breaking me while whispering sweet nothings in my ear.
When I’m surrounded by love you make me feel alone. When there’s Hope you make me see only the darkness that follows the light. You make me see the shackles on my feet and not the ones in my mind. You keep me a shallow husk of the man I could have been. You let me fight just so I can see how hopeless i have become .
everything i write feels incomplete and imperfect. I've not written in so long ill come back to this and try to fix it when i get back into the swing of things.
A second attempt at this poem the first shot is still on my profile
