Asking For Help

Dear Darkness
You have sucked me in
Take no prisoners in this war
Grated and shredded until I’m raw
I am completely at your mercy
Blinded by the shadows that you store
I know not which way is up nor down
Neither do I know the path out
Of your wretched gripping vacuum
Whenever I am reached a helping hand
You claw and scratch to hold your clutch
Your misery is stronger than I can
Melancholy drowning in my eyes
You feasted on my hope
Devoured all my confidence
A body with no will
I surrender to your kill
But that is not your intention
Rather to linger in the pain
Suffer in a silent stew
But I am done!
Many hands reach out
To pull me up
Away from your mangled hooks
Rescue me from insanity
To raise my self-esteem
Remind me of my worth
And love this being that I am
