In for the Rain: Poetry, My Own Abyss

My Own Abyss
By Raine Leggett

Surrounded by darkness, I try to escape
I with an emotionless expression
Upon my face, what do I do, but
remember you, those times you scolded,
laughed, and hate

I drown in a river of my own tears,
slowly being consumed by my fears.
burning with hatred from remembrance
of you, with a stake in my heart
piercing through and through.

You denied me life and corrupted my
soul, with all that nonsense you seem
to hold, wanting nothing but
the end of my soul.

Now here I lie in my own abyss,
clenching my fist at the thought of
you, standing there laughing as
 I slowly drown in my abyss.
