    The Thief

    This life I live seems bleak, and only but a lie,
    these potent feeling overwhelm, and will not be denied..
    I casually greet people living all around me, or so I make it seem,
    but deep inside, my thoughts are raging, and swirling all around..

    He came upon me when I was defenseless and so very fragile,
    and stole my tender dreams, my control, and all my power.
    I tried and tried to fight, and find some hidden weapon,
    but in the end, he wore me down..retreat my only option.

    I sit here on the edge, looking out and try to see,
    The sunlight, mists and moonbeams; their beauty calls to me.
    Sometimes I catch a feather, an angel dropped in passing,
    I search deep inside my soul, for truths not misbegotten,

    Why can’t I be content with life just as it is?
    Why does love elude me, along with simple peace?
    Sometimes it feels as if there just no more hope,
    each day I have to struggle, for another way to cope.

    Sometimes I wonder, if my heart will be forever sealed.
    I want to soar so very far away, free upon the wind,
    but captive I still remain, for he goes wherever I am,
    and lives and breathes in the darkest realms of me.

    Some days I feel a ray of hope, or glimmer of love held out to me.
    Sometimes I grieve for the laughing girl I used to be,
    He does not even let me feel, the hope’s caress on whispered breeze,
    nor let me hear the words of comfort and grace for surcease.

    Why can’t I resist this roller coaster ride of shame?
    Why can’t I just say no to this, my own other blackened side?
    Sometimes I feel I cannot take the paralyzing pain,
    I wonder if I’ll break apart, or even remain sane.

    How can I abolish or relieve this dreadful terror?
    How in the end, did I lose, all that I held so dear?
    These question strike dread so deep within my soul,
    I feel so alone, behind these frigid walls of stone.

    The battle rages on, although I grow exhausted…
    When will this bitter struggle end…
    which leaves my heart completely ravaged?

    Most days I scream inside, and endure this horrid agony…
    in silence, in the dark,
    alone and without cease..

    In the end I think my death, may be the only way…
    to stop this potent thief…
    named Fear.​

    Oh my gosh that was sad but beautiful. I wish to reach out a ray of hope and extend a light into the midst of that darkness. Should you need it grab hold and find some comfort there.
