    Someone suggested I ought to share my poetry, so here's something that came out of my brain last week when I was trying to articulate how I feel lately. Without further ado....


    Again and Again

    by Ana

    The noonday demon strikes me again.
    It beats my brain
    Black and blue
    And black again.
    "What ravages of spirit conjure this temptuous rage? "
    I would swallow the dark whole
    If it might snuff out this never ceasing
    Pain so thick I cannot breathe
    So thick my desire to breathe vanishes
    So thick I am powerless to help myself
    Because of the exhaustion
    And hopelessness engendered by so long a sojourn in this valley.
    What light is there?
    I would turn to Him
    But He is deaf and I tire quickly
    Of the bruises of beating against His cross.
    In the end, the night is always near
    The woods are dark, not lovely, but deep
    And no more miles to go before I sleep.

    Dark and powerful Ana.
    Also, I like the quote from the Pope.

    Strong poem. I like it although I know it came from a dark place.
