Days Despair Takes Hold

Awakened stolen away

to the pits of the despair

where eyes read my own

and see my vacant stare.

I would wish no witness

see me naked and so bare.

All the time I’ve spent to

hide the true coat I wear.

What makes me me it is

the pain that I can take.

All the agony of isolation

meets me as I start wake.

I roll out of my warm bed

and look outside sad that

the sun it has risen again

to bring the day to combat.

I have felt it as I think all

can probably say the same.

Come with me my friend

let’s see who sane remains.

Our trip it’s at the bottom,

no further down we’ll go.

I wish you didn’t see me

on days my despair holds.
