Times like this when the darkness grows When my heart just sinks and my depression shows I can’t seem to control the ebbs and flows And I teeter on the edge of the Abyss Wisps of indifference reach out for me A shapeless mass of pure insanity Welcome back to nothing, welcome back to purity And I wonder why I don’t just fall Dreams have been unravelled and hopes forlorn Into a world of such indifference I have been borne And now at the mercy of time’s Hellish scorn Yet as I gaze into nothing, I see everything Within me the spark; I can’t put it out That gives the most heartless the benefit of doubt Yes, life can be cruel but there’s beauty all about Yet as I gaze at everything I still sometimes see nothing So at times like this when joy and light fade... And all of life’s wonders turn to me to jade I can feel nothing especially not afraid - I’m just thankful not everything rhymes! (originally written January 2015)
