Sadness... the rabid dog; rages within
Chewing raw nerve ends and spitting out dreams
Ripping tender flesh off hope’s fragile skin
Leaving gaping need with jagged frayed seams

Wanting... taunts at anxiety’s repose
Silence’s dissonance splutters and chokes
Sanity fractures through regret’s flogged throws 
Replaying traumas which can’t be revoked 

Apathy, hangs in the mind, drips and bleeds
Depression’s rope tight, yet still I breathe 
Pooling despair, drowns and offers mercy 
Suicide’s cool whisper... a welcome relief
