Deep In Negation

Written by: Laura Breidenthal


no beauty but gain
emptied of life and brightness
deep in negation
winning no more affection
losing sight of clear heaven

hating self to gain
missing the shameless rain
sorrow mixed within
blooming nothing for the spring
flooding anger all in vain

eyes cast to the ground
absent of positive rays
here comes the dark days
blinding us all to our hell
for thoughts—ever down—sting most
