I've never posted anon before, I for some reason I think I need to for this lol. I've never shared this, so please be kind... I'm just hoping maybe someone can relate.

The dark is getting darker.
I can hardly see the light.
The air is cold, chaotic.
The end is almost out of sight.

The walls are cool and moist.
They chill me to the bone.
The ground is damp and dank.
I fear I'm all alone.

I try to call for help.
The wind blows and stills my voice.
I listen closely in the blackness.
In this place there is no noise.

The silence here is deafening.
The lack of life is queer.
Am I all that is breathing?
How did I get here?

A sadness is descending
Made from loneliness and pain.
All happiness is dying
As it begins to rain.

The raindrops burn on contact
Leaving red marks on my face.
The walls are closing in now.
I'm running out of space.

I'm searching for some shelter
To shield me from the rain.
The walls are getting closer.
I fear I've gone insane.

I call for help once more.
No once can hear my cry.
I bow my head, surrender.
Is it my time to die?

The dark is getting darker.
I no longer see the light.
The air is cold, chaotic.
There is no end in sight...

I think it's beautiful and reflects so well the emptiness depression can bring xo

 I can not say it's beautiful----but please  do not take it as bashing. I only mean that It hits home for me  eactly where I am right at this minute, and the pit isn't a beautiful thing.

Actually, I think it's very well done and expressive, and touching.  I really do like the way you write.
