The Black Hole
Its excruciating pain,
reaches the depths of the soul.
Slowly eating its way through, layer by layer.
Extinguishing the tenuous flame of life,
penetrating deeper and deeper.
Crying out, but no one to hear,
no one to care.
Wanting to give, but no one to take.
So many years, so very many years.
Mistakes made that can never be erased.
The darkness grows oppressingly darker.
The unbearable emptiness goes on and on,
no end in sight.
The flame of hope, my only defense, frantically flickers, wanting to go out.
But, there can be no life without it,
so it struggles on, not knowing why.
Why, a question with no answer.
The pressure of unbearable frustration
ready to explode atany moment.
Trying to appear calm, but failing miserably.
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
So much to give, so much to give....
Reach out and help another person,
because, you are really helping yourself.
