Letters to darkness

I sit here and I reflect,

How did I let you back in?


you are not welcome here

all you bring is misery & hate

you make me hate myself

you make me feel like a failure


I did not invite you

yet you came anyway

you are always testing me

waiting to come back in


I name you darkness

you sap the joy out of life

I wish I could rid you

but I always fail


  1. Yes, I had another mental breakdown today, this time there were no triggers, no hormones to blame. I don’t know how I got into this state, I’m making positive changes; I’m getting on top of finances and exercising more. Yet the darkness still came to devour all joy.

  2. Demons Of Darkness

    She stood on the bridge
    In silence and fear
    For the demons of darkness
    Had driven her here

    They cut her heart
    Right out of her chest
    Making her believe
    That the demons knew best

    They were always there
    Sometimes just out of sight
    Waiting in the background
    Till the time was right

    These demons were destructive
    Knocking down the life she knew
    Hating everything about her
    She hated herself too

    These demons can’t be seen
    But they’re far from fairy tales
    They live inside your mind
    Their evilness prevails

    So on the bridge she stood
    About to end the fight
    Then she stopped and thought
    I’ll fight them one more night
