Dry Mascara


Nobody sees through the shadow and the color of my eyes
The times I've cried are the only time you notice the trace down my face
This time,  
The sorrow at heart is deeper than anything I've ever penned or spoke of,
  an atmosphere of dark film and Revlon
Many times I allowed myself to die, only to return to the living 
The numbness of my soul, delivers weight nobody can lift

Talk of black eyes,   the tale of my life reopens every scar
On good days, the sun seems to stray from where I lay,
    Only to reveal the paste that drowns my face
At times I blank out the pain, 
  the depression compiles the close quarters of my room
Even then, I can't escape every past wound I covered up
Hiding was never the problem, the healing process was

Institutionalized, no longer able to function as a whole 
Each cell inside replicates a tight thick wall with no escape 
The laughter of nothing sinks into a gulf of tears
With moods more melancholy than most  
I press the pain that echoes hard within my head  
- I weep
Deep sadness flows with no mercy,     no reason
  Nothing to cancel out the voices that hush my inner being
In a whisper I ask for  H E L P, 
- I bleed
Nobody sees me, nobody hears me,   NOBODY.....
The  mascara ruins another fake mask

Grief is somber,   
  a constant reminder to my soul that it can't hide forever
Silence   -   callous
Until I can't feel anything....
Empty     -   detached
I felt myself become numb 
Emotions gone 
I   laughed   at   the   end.

Hi PD, here I am again, and I think well it really Can be that bad, but also things improve..' And I appreciated the laughter bit, I really Need It if thus is just the prelude to the serious stuff! But no 'do you find the hardest thing is Allowing yourself to be happy? As that you Are closing a chapter that you did not want Opened first off' and if there were some who Made errors they were not aware of? its hard To turn your back on them but there is no way back to reason with them, hard sfuff'

You are right about hiding. Tears and sorrow are something we all experience but may never know why it is so. You were one of first 2 comment on my work in 2016. Hope you will post some more this year 2021. Regards David in NZ

APD, All precious days have a beginning and an end. All precious in their rarity, and the love they choose to send. I hope that you feel the love too. -Richard

A very deep, emotional poem. Depression is like a thief that would steal your joy, your well-being. All you see is darkness and it numbs your senses. How I wish nobody goes through it because it is a very difficult illness to overcome.

Stunning portrait of elegant sadness, PD! Lucid words of introspection, a lustrous weave of intense passion. Ty for your blessed muse return. Your quill voice has never sounded calligraphy better. Stillness is always a good move. And this bombshell poem moves w/emotional ticking re-calibration. Stay safe. Love and best wishes for the holiday.

Hi PD, You have penned such a deep and heartfelt emotive write.Depression is no joke, a person that hasn’t gone through it may not understand. They may say,get out of your funk, inside I respond, I’m trying to but not it’s not that easy. After a rain storm( whatever it may be) a rainbow is on the horizon. Congratulations on getting the poem the day. It was well deserved! PS. It’s good to see you PD. Have a wonderful day-Alexis
