The Battlefield of My Mind

It was like my psychosis was bombarded by my kindness. 
All things that bestow internal leverage against my hope
left a fragment of my soul…
                                            forever forsaken. 

The slanted bevel of the raging reverie became my friend. 
I sought fear at times, but it seems like freedom did derelict
me when I was weak. 
Will I finally seek a resolution to ease my anguished mind;
or will abandonment be my one and only reason to exist?

I have fallen down a sinkhole of misery’s hollow grave,
needing love to survive; craving reasons to follow dreams
I longed would come true.  
Hoping one day this life is just an illusion I can break free
from without the worry of pain leaving me breathless…
                                                                       once again.

You captured the human element in this verse of misery and recovery. I felt it all the way to the bottom. Lonna

Great poetry, L.L. The slanted bevel of the raging reverie deserves more than a silver, I think.
