Empty man
An empty man knows no fear
Yet the blackness haunts me
An empty man sheds no tears
Yet this pain still taunts me
Blackness is a living thing
Biting at my heals
It whispers out in anguish
Echoes how I feel
Upon this edge of darkess
Lies a place without a name
Blackness has just won the fight
I will never be the same
One day you won't be watching
One day I'll go too far
What is left of this empty man
Will be scattered amidst the stars
Then I'll know I'm free
As blackness shows it's face
Fading to the cryptic dark
In this empty mans embrace


Author's Notes:
This one seems so wicked dark. It is the oposite of the way I feel. I hope you have a wonderful day

You have nailed depression in this poem Fletch. It sounds like somebody is about ready to jump off a tall building when nobody is watching. Suicide is a permanent solution to a fixable situation. (Just food for thought, like this poem.)

A little darkness makes the light that much more brighter...

This dark cloak clouds our mind and thoughts not wanting to think of things from the past that have caused us to feel this way.They come and go and when the sun shines and the clouds vanish for that time this is when the heart is so blessed


Magnificent Fletch

 Darkess is a heavy coat to wear and we struggle to keep it on until it becomes so heavy we just crumble beneath its weight...  I know of this darkness ... Great poem my dear friend ~Thanks for your comments on my poems.. your a sweetheart...

As always you create and write so that others can relate.

This does seem dark but you have expressed yourself

so well here. You put all the words in the exact place

that they need to be...You just have it that way...

Wonderful write, of that darkness that so many have

come to know.

Depression is an awful thing. I usually remind myself that if I'm feelin it, then all isn't lost. Numb is when it scares me...good write Fletch, and one I know  many will relate to.

Very well stated.  To explain how you feel wile you are depressed is not always easy!  Done brilliantly.
