Can't Shake The Fear

Shrouded in darkness

through the night and day

wallowing in hopelessness

a cruel price to pay


Dark lonely thoughts

creep in with depression

wrap their arms around me

my soul is in recession


I fold in mental anguish

crumple with the pain

and silently I scream

as the fear kicks in again


The blackness encompasses

my every waking thought

I'm lost in that darknes

trapped, it's got me caught


Where is the light

at the long tunnels end?

I need to reach it very soon

or my soul will never mend


The darkness is receeding

my pathway is now clear

I've come out the other side

but I still can't shake the fear.

The End
