Damnation

I hate you
hissed the voice
across the ether of time.
Roiling ripping away
tearing my soul
ending my fears with a dagger deep.
Falling unable to stop
death seems so preferable
until I realize I am….
in a free fall all the way down.
Fires flame
lava errupts
demons scatter
leaving behind the damned.
A cacophony of voices
demanding
insistent that I…..
I alone
can save them
release them
from the nightmares they must face
as part of their damnation.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
