Daily Revelations

This piece is centralized around: depression, loneliness, hurt, and emotional demise.

Deprived of affection and a sense of belonging

one retires to a sanctuary of isolation.

Arraigned by the acute pain of rejection

the walls become his or her world.

Indicted with selfishness and antisocial behavior

sleep is the best defense and life sentence.

Levied with incessant worries about tomorrow

sense falls to numbness like a baby lulled to sleep.

Yearning for warmth and the need to be heard

one contemplates talking to inanimate objects.

Reprehended for vocalizing one’s outlook

of the world, silence becomes the decorum.

Encapsulated with grief, mobility

is running errands for survival only.

Vilified for one’s depressive state

smiles are just an anti wrinkle cream.

Engrossed with sadness from one’s state

causes palpitation with the slightest change.

Larking with dark thoughts of an early exit

becomes one’s favorite pass-time.

Adjourned from engaging in sweet nothings

estranges one around so many happy faces.

Truncated moments of free expression

becomes the only method of communication.

Incapacitated with anger and denial

one falters to bitterness and dismay.

Obliterated from the lives of close ones

confines one to being minuscule.

Neap tide for once is just a moment of rebellion

against reality’s gravity pulling one down.

Susceptibility to darkness is a daily revelation

only experienced by ones who face mishaps alone.
