Can profoundness only thrive with the coexistence of pain?

Where life itself is vain

And each action twists your fate

Happiness becomes a burden

Love you learn to hate


Are emotions only relevant when toxic to your heart?

Slowly eroding you soul

Til you're completely torn apart


Why do I only feel when I crave to be numb?

These tears of acid burn my cheeks

And shape who I become:


Only darkness exists throughout the dull day

And cold nights

No longer familar to the warm embrace of light.

The author's comments:

Pieces of writing only seem to be "deep" when they're sad. People only seem to care about your emotions when you're drowning in sorrow. It's a constant cycle of playing a martyr to have people actually care for you, but the reality of it is much darker.
