A poem about dealing with mental illness at some of its worst times.

Shadows

Sailing toward nothingness, I drift into the void.

Tendrils of darkness twist and curl, clasping onto me, dragging me down to the depths.

Scratching and clawing, I attempt to ascend.

Sanctuary just out of my reach, ever confined in shadows.

Behind a mask I hide, posing as calm, while war rages inside.

From the first breath of golden light,

To the whisper of the silver night,

I fight.

But it is hard to escape, when your captor is yourself.

Defeat seemingly imminent, you become lost, surrendering to the demon within.

Aimlessly wandering, doomed with life imprisonment.
