“Lately, words are missing from now on”…

~

Immersed in the silence…

Standing high above…

Away from all the chaos…

With the view of a dove…

Looking down upon them…

Invisible to them all…

The only time they’ll notice…

Is when the ground halts her fall…

She doesn’t know how she got here…

Her day has been a blur…

But the voices keep on talking…

And she’s no strength left to defer…

As this moment has been coming…

She’s grown darker by the day…

Her demons kept tormenting…

Her depression wouldn’t go away…

She’s been looking for an answer…

She’s been praying for a sign…

An end to her inner turmoil…

By some heavenly design…

But the gods have not listened…

Despite all the preachers lies…

Leaving her no other option…

But to sever all her ties…

And as she stands there gazing….

At what lies far below…

She thinks of her family…

Who just didn’t want to know…

The friends who didn’t notice…

And never heard her pleas…

Whist the voices in her head…

Finally forced her to her knees…

To this point of no return…

A place of darkness and despair…

Where her life has no meaning…

Amongst a pile of unanswered prayers…

Leaving only pain and anger…

Pushing her closer to the edge…

And in a desperate bid for freedom…

She steps off the ledge…

  1. You have really captured the essence of where ultimate despair comes from. The saddest thing, I think, is to contemplate that for every person that steps “off the ledge”, there are so many more who are still suffering. Stepping closer each day… I feel that this poem is less depressing, and more inspiring to listen better to the suffering around me.

    • Thank you for your insightful comment Claire – there is always light and shade within the darkness I write, it depends on viewpoint and interpretation – some read my words as depressing, others read a leap of faith to freedom – each are valid in their own way and each have its own merits. Cheers J
