Despair short poem

Photo by AlicePopkorn

As I look around me,
The world becomes so different,
So full of love,
So full of hate

Hate is hard to keep away,
But sometimes it’s the only way

The person who you hate,
May have a perfect fate,
They just don’t see it yet

Caught in the darkness of your despair,
Beyond fixing, unless you disappear,

But that is not the answer,
Because when you put all your focus on hate,
The love slowly fades

Until one day you realize
That not every part of life has to be a lie

You don’t have to be depressed,
Stuck in a hole that you feel you can never come out of
Wanting to cry, where no one will hear

Well listen my dear,
Because I can hear

And that hole in which you hide,
Is just your closet in your room,

For I know how you feel,
And I hear your tears,
Because it’s me crying

It’s me crying in fear,
What if there is no love,
What if there is no cheer

Where does that leave me,
Alone and sad
Going crazy, and the slightest bit mad?

Laugh, and the world laughs with you;: Weep, and you weep alone. We should try to be more positive in our outlook towards life. Hope you are able to come out of it, all the best!

When I laugh the world looks at me as though I’m nuts.

Everything I earned, everything I learned going into vain, They all forgot everything, leaving me with an incredible pain. Now, I am all alone having just a work of taking breath, Nothing left in my life, I am just waiting

Of merciless nights of despair

Of merciless nights of despair short poem

Time has kissed all over your Wide strong frame like a Much married mistress. Shrunk your dependable muscles, Loosened your chestnut brown cover, Sculpted your face with lines That deepen your smiles and worries. That chest where I lay curled
