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


A foreign word to me.


What is that?


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.
