Despair. I am like a windowless, empty room. Bleak and dark i steal hope and give anguish. Distress i am to you. Lonely desolation. Like a cloak you wear me with great sadness.
April 12th 2011 Written by Emma Mantle For contest Traditional Cinquain Contest by Catie Lindsey. H/M June 1st 2011 'Old contest entry' 9th place

    Emma, you always touch my heart with your words. The sadness of your "despair" is overwhelming. I hope that is not the reason you haven't been posting new poetry. There are some very kind people who will help you shed the cloak of distress if you reach out. I see you won a contest with this poem, so congratulations are in order. Peace and blessings, Carolyn
