In The Depths

Easy it is to go down in the dark
Easy it is to drown in your heart
Easy it is lie down and seek death
But do not expect death just yet
Easy it is to yearn and want
Easy it is for the ghosts to haunt
Easy it is to want death to come
But not so easy to let go of life hum drum
Easy it is to want it to end
But not so easy to transcend
Not so easy to move past the dark
Not so easy to lift your heart
Easy it is to go into the expanse
To happily go deeper
To die perchance
Easy it is to seek death and decay
But not so easy to be happy and stay

    I love how you keep mentioning a "yearning"; I can totally relate to this (as I'm sure everyone else can as well). I've said it before: I love when a poet expresses a universal sentiment, and you've done it well. Fantastic read; great job! :)

    I am revising my comment. David Grey is who I meant. The lyric needs to be added to too. My oh my you know it just don't stop. My oh my you know it just don't stop. It takes alot of love, it takes alot of love my friend. To keep your heart from freez'n, to push on to the end. My oh my.

    My oh my you know it just don't stop. That's a lyric from I can't think of his name off hand. David somebody. To keep your heart from freezin', To push on to the end. My oh my you know it just don't stop. That song tears me up when I sing along with it. Your poem mirrors it very much.

    hello April, i loved your first poem so much i came to read a second poem... love the poem , it is amazing, how one can fall, and stay... but yet, we never seek the perfect way to get up from it all. and find that happy is much better than, the easy way out... an excellent poem...LINDA

    It is quite easy to go "south". Quite a necessary & powerful message here.
