Don't Say Me It's Peaceful


Don't say me it's peaceful
When I grade it as mournful
You define to calm and mollify
Is what I need to justify.

Imagine the fangs within me.
Feel the pain just like me.
I can’t wish who I will be
No reason left to be glee.
I try to fight but always flee.
My unfathomed downfall, I can see.

Depression I wear as a mask
Feeling disconnected in this task
What is left of me?
What have I become?

A result lately of my choice
A fool, I ignored my own voice
Only if I’d questioned the cause
This spiralling fall I’d gauge

Redeeming of the past is left behind
Time to gather the soul to rewind
See I have become misery’s slave
Last tread will take me to my grave.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
