Dark Reality

Feel like I’m drowning.

The weight of the world is crushing me.

I can’t tell you how much I detest my reality.

Am I invisible? Seems like no one can truly see me.

Look, I’m on my knees!

Why won’t you intercede?

Please. Seriously.

Nothing makes sense anymore.

I am lost and stuck in the dark.

Because now I know I’ll never make my mark.

I look at the stars and wish I was one.

Miles away, like me. But in the Heavens, where I’d rather be.

Screaming at the top of my lungs but no one really hears me.

I’m swallowed up in my fear and doubt.

All I want is to find my way out.

How did I find myself here, yet again?


  1. This is a beautiful expression of emotions, thank you sharing. If it is an expression of how things feel in your life now, or sometimes, or some ways, then I am glad you feel confident sharing, it takes courage.

    However you are feeling, kia kaha (stay strong). I look forward to reading more of these musings. 😊

  2. Feeling so far away, but not like the stars are…
    far away but stuck…
    That feeling has haunted so much of me.
    That feeling has hovered over all those “between” places I have wandered.

    Beautifully expressed here.

  3. Beautifully poignant. Frustration desperately crying out in the darkness to the One. The One… Can, will the One intercede? Looking to the stars does offer some comfort from “the weight of the world” when you are standing on the edge of the abyss. The stars, in which deities delight, shed light on an alternate reality. The question is eternal: how do we find ourselves here, again, and again, and again…
