    Hi Peoples!

    I started this thread to post some of my depressing poetry that i like to write. Typically it is lyrical poetry. It’s not very good so you will have plenty to call out a critique. If anyone else has any depressing poetry to post you are welcome to join me in this thread. I’ll post a short one to kick things off. It’s horrible I know but hey! I never claimed to be a good poet. LOL!

     

    Last Chance

    Give me one last

    Give me one last chance

    I need a little more time tonight

    To prove myself to you

    I need more time to fight

    I know I failed you last time

    But I promise you I won’t this time

     

    Give me one last

    Give me one last chance

    I need a little more of you trust

    To prove my love to you

    Before I turn to dust

    I know I am a dirty wreck

    But I promise I will do better this time

    I have a short excerpt from a song I wrote around October. Hope you enjoy.

    I feel like there’s too much space,

    Not enough love, not enough grace,

    To help me rise from my broken down state.

    I’m tired of living, the same old stuff every day,

    But I’m afraid to die, so I struggle on anyway,

    No one ever seems to hear me when I say,

    There’s too much happening around me,

    And I’m feeling lonely,

    Are my friends here for me,

    Or will they leave me?

     

    I’m not okay, but I cover it up like a mistake.

    All this love of ours does is take,

    My face is a mask, and no one knows,

    That my mind is in a different place.

    I’m afraid of dying,

    But if it all faded away, that would be fine.

     

    “Tears sparkle like fallen stars, the world at our fingertips, We didn’t know, It wasn't happiness.

    Thanks for the tag!! If I come up with something depressing, I’ll chime in.

    Psalm 119:11
    Your word I have hidden in my heart,
    That I might not sin against You.

    I guess this is kinda depressing. Lonely for sure.

    The Road
    It’s a lonely road to travel
    Paved with stones, a path of gravel
    Heart is aching, strengths unravel
    With the weight of the load

    Seems I’ve walked and walked for decades
    Feet are aching, cut on rock blades
    Hacked from bitter words cascades
    And no one shares the load

    Oh this weary road I’ve traveled
    I have walked it for years
    Yet no friend have I found on it
    Not a one to share tears
    It’s the cry my heart is screaming
    For a friend I’m dreaming
    It’s a lonely road to travel
    When no one shares the load

    A friend’s love would brighten the days
    Lift my head and clear all this haze
    Clouding my view with dark grays
    Yet no one shares the road

    If they fall down, I’d help them stand
    Be refreshing in burning sand
    Strengthen each other as we trek this land
    But not one friend I know

    Oh this weary road I’ve traveled
    I have walked it for years
    Yet no friend have I found on it
    Not a one to share tears
    It’s the cry my heart is screaming
    For a friend I’m dreaming
    It’s a lonely road to travel
    When no one shares the load

    It’s a lonely road to travel
    When your heart crumbles like gravel
    Watching your strength unravel
    With the weight of the load

    Will the road ahead be barren
    Always ring with cry of raven
    Will no soul come be my haven
    Come walk along the road

    Psalm 119:11
    Your word I have hidden in my heart,
    That I might not sin against You.
