Blackened

by midnight_poesy
Nuggets of misery,
Broken strips of drilled emotions,
Crooked lines of regret.
Oh what pain!What pain!

Come and go, and let me know,
What sickness blackened your shine?
What fractured your smile?
Or what desire left you etherised?

Unmoving parallels of great vehicles,
Or honks of great depression,
I've come to seek,
Who has blackened thee?

A broken back or a crushed skull,
A dead cell or rotten teeth?
What pain is it, in me
That can match the pain I see in thee?

Who was the thief who stole your joy?
Which artist covered you in a coat of mist?
All these potholes of anxiety that I see,
Once, I saw in the remnants of the dead, the doomed and the buried.

Let others and the author know if you liked it

It's not so much THAT we fight so much as WHAT we fight about... and in the end, we realize that trying to continue to fight loses focus on the true problem. Am I really better than you?
