    I havent been able to express how i feel to anyone lately so im using this to hopefully show someone what is in my head.

    Hopeless Despair

    I sit in despair as
    fleeting thoughts ravage my mind
    knowing there is no mending
    for this my tortured soul.
    There is no peace that i can find.
    I cant sleep, nor can I eat.
    My spirit, despondent beyond repair
    torments my mind. Feeling obsolete,
    I sit on a bed of discouragement
    with head in hands and weeping.
    Demons, bleak and feculent
    drown my hopes and desires.
    Depression wraps its entrails
    around me like a blanket of hellfire
    as i search for the shadow of love.
    Just a shadow, of hope
    to lift this discouraged soul like a dove
    to a world of peace and serenity,
    where my soul, my mind, and my body
    will no longer languish in morbidity.
