Solitude of Being

 

being
has created
the worst hell
emotions of
despair, grief, pain
are always there
fighting for attention
they sap my strength
leaving me
weak, limp
incapable of breathing.
 
being
has created
only hopelessness
it dwells there
where blackness
surrounds, engulfs me
as i keep
my eyes closed
to shut out more
of what
the solitude of being
brings.
