Hope against all odds

Whether it's dawn or dusk,can't decipher
What's my destiny,can't decipher

I have wandered into this place
Where even living is forbidden

Not even a streak of light left
Not a single beat of loving heart

All hopes shattered to pieces
All dreams have left their abode

Stench of  stale air around
Grasping for each breath

Still wishing this strangled breath could get some relief
A sign,a hope ,it would be to live again.....

    Woo this one is disturbing, thankfully not reality. Definately elicits emotion.

    Such despair in this one. I hope it was all invented. Because your other poem was much more hopeful!! sometimes it is good to write of different kinds of emotions!
