Dark Mood


My thoughts
get stuck
in a thick tar swamp
knowing
that I am drowning
further below
but not quite
the end

Struggling is useless
Letting go is impossible
Tangled in poison syrup

In pitch dark night sky
all the stars
give up on me
They blink out
So
I settle in
being lost
dying alive
alone

  1. What a lovely poem Cassa. Every line expressing sadness and being overwhelmed. Beautiful writing.

    “Struggling is useless
    Letting go is impossible
    Tangled in poison syrup”

    These lines and of course the ending I can relate to somewhat, and I would guess many of us have if we were to be honest. Life is full of challenges and hardships and we all have ours to bare. This is so lovely. Thank you dear Cassa!

    1. I am grateful that through poetry I can express these dark thoughts/feelings, so in reality they never able to take roots. Thank you Joni for sharing your thoughts. Life is full of challenges indeed. And it is also full of wonders. 💚💞🦋
