"Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding." -Khalil Gibran

The day's sun shines the brightest light
Yet blackened clouds remain unseen
Deep within my soul lies an endless night
That keeps my thoughts unclean
I pray that it stays inside
Heaven knows what monsters lie
In my sickened mind

They're clawing for attention
Yet I try to act aloof
At first I don't believe but later had a misaprehnsion
It's not normal, and I don't need any proof
These thoughts, these thoughts cannot be real
Please just make them stop
Pain is the only thing I feel
I fear my time is up

A premontion flashes before my eyes
Light eats up all the black
Consuming all my countless lies
It tells me what to expect
I fear it's bad news for me
Something I'd happily reject
A mourning dove cries out, "A death of self is what I foresee"

I don't know what to do
Perhaps this is the last thing I'll write
Or maybe it means I'll start anew
Or it might mean the end of the relentless

wow. this is so beautiful and haunting. I absolutely loved it. it's rare for a poem to really affect my feelings and capturing the true moments. but this piece is just a work of art--it's so pretty. i could read it over and over again and i would still get the chills. :)
