what I call "Dark Text"

I wrote these a long time ago during a bout of depression, comment is invited:

The Hill

My life is like a giant hill and I am constantly pushing a
huge rock up it. Unless I always push and never give up, the rock
comes rolling back all the way to the bottom and if I'm not
careful it crushes me. So I always have to struggle and force
myself to keep pushing that rock all the time or risk losing what
I've accomplished. It's a really, really big rock.


I don't belong in "their" world. "They" being everyone other
than me. They live in a world of light and hope, while I dwell
in shadow and darkness. It's all I know, why change what is
comfortable, or do I hate it. Part of me must or I would have

Anger 1

Anger is the fuel which ignites my soul and burns my core.
It consumes me, engulfing my being, trying to take over, yet
never overcoming me. I struggle on day by day, the anger locked

The Cycle Repeats

So it begins again, the cycle anew. Will it ever cease.
Little changes, my world so limited, so fragile, fractured by the
tiniest pebble. How do I reinforce the infrastructure, how do I
strengthen the supports. Can they be strengthened. The answer
has to be yes. For I've come this far. Still I linger, even if
splintered and worn.
Nice work. I like the "cycle repeats" and "anger" sections.

Thanks for sharing. Big Grin
