Bad Memories

Bad Memories

Light shines through cracks
Another daily torture here
Unwelcome, disturbing
Knowing I will be taken
down memory lane
Thoughts are perturbing 

Some too painful to face
Wishing I was not awake
My heart has become sore
I close my eyes to madness
praying for darkness
to consume me once more

    Oh, Christine. This is exceptional. Painful once again, but..
    “I close my eyes to madness
    praying for darkness
    to consume me once more”

      Thank you G. I don’t where those words came from today as I’m in a really happy mood 🙂

        Thank you. Yes I should sometimes preface my poetry and state that it isn’t always representative of my feelings! I like to write for everyone so they know they are not alone in their sorrow ❤️

      Yes thanks so much for reading. Sometimes I don’t know where my thoughts come from! 🙂

        I’m the same way sometimes, haha, appreciate the work you do.

    This is really sad! I’ve a friend going through a crisis of anxiety right now, getting meds — which she fears, too — and I think she has times when she feels just like this. I’m glad to hear it’s not where you’re at now.
    However, thanks for participating in the prompt.
