Life's Missing Puzzle Piece

January 20, 2017

 

I found this poem that I wrote during the early 2000's during a period of deep depression. I post this because it reminds me that I have experienced extreme darkness numerous times, but I haven't let it keep me down. Life does get brighter with the right treatment. 

 

Life’s Missing Puzzle Piece

 

Happy-
A foreign word to me.

 

Smile-
What is that?

 

Laughter-
I forget how.

Swallowed up by my world of darkness, sadness and depression.

 

Loneliness flows through my veins like poison, consuming my mind and spirit.
All ALONE – floating through this life ALONE!

 

Numb to feelings that are pleasant. Bad is all I feel.

 

A wonderful life and family surround me, but I can’t find the pieces to make me whole.

 

I stand back and watch as a dark monster sucks the life out of me.

 

Tears flow knowing I can’t stop it.

 

There’s a good person here – somewhere, but … WHERE???

 

I’m not ungrateful, just lost in a deep, dark sea.

 

The sun will rise again in my world someday when I find the pieces to make me whole.
