(I recommend anything beyond 'Tumbling Ash' for the rest is a mess of nonsense words that hold no character, no story and absently fill the page)

50. Dark Places

 

I'm drifting back.

 

I've tried so hard to break myself free from this place,

to escape it's venomous clutches but every time my finger nails scrape

the light of the exit

I'm just dragged back to be swallowed by the infinitive

darkness.

 

Where the only waterfalls are the tears springing to my eyes

and the only monsters

are those lurking, shadowed in the gaps of my ribs.

Light is thrown out,

disregarded,

ignored.

 

Where all those thoughts I had slayed with my

supposed happiness

have risen from their graves and come

stomping through my mind in a rampage of sorrow.

 

Their hands hauling me through the murky air and dangling me

on the very edge of the

darkening abyss of depression and from

me screeches a deafening scream that rattles my heart but no one else's

ears.

 

And with a smile from the dead and a shriek from me,

they simply let go and all I am is

f
