POETRY RANT - SILENT AFFIRMATION




Silent affirmation;
Haunts in shadows you can't see,
An ominous grasp
has its clutches on me,
Leaving marks impregnated on my throat.

Breathless screams;
Are my cries.

Through a strained larynx;
I hold myself responsible, to believe,
That I could carry on
this bitter confirmation, stocking me.

Accompanied dreams;
False cries.

At every convention in this mind;
With the grand illusion,
that depression is my best friend,
Only when we think we have time.

This is how this begins;
Quiet infiltration.
