Something dark, moody and different from my usual
Black tears roll down my face,
My mind is torn in two.
Ominous clouds hang overhead,
Emotions consuming my heart.
So much to handle,
Too much to bear.

Forcing myself to carry on,
Each day my soul shrivels.
There's nothing good in my world,
No happy place or reprieve.
Opressive weight crushes me.
More black tears fall down.

Dead eyes, false smiles.
Spiralling down into the dark.
Clinging on to every hope,
Or glimmer of joy in the abyss.
Then the sparkle flickers, fails.
Crying black tears in the night.

Pushing through, persevering.
So much of this life yet to live.
This isn't living though,
It's torture, torment, despair.
Absent feelings or frustration.
Burning black tears flow still.
