#WriterWednesday: Perpetual Sadness-A Poem by @ChelseaDeVries

Perpetual sadness
Drowns my soul
some would call it a hole
in my heart
that tears me apart
as I lay my head to sleep
at night.

Frustration eats away at me
Insecurity rises
Pride ebbs and flows,
she likes to take everything
much like an obsessed lover
I have yet to love.

Does anyone realize
that I'm broken?
Or am I good
at pretending?
Fake it until
you become it.

I don't know how
to go on
until I hear
a still small voice.

It says
Be still and know 
that I am God.
O child, 
where is your faith?
The joy of the Lord
is your strength.

I must allow this
to be the tissue
that wipes away my tears
yet just like a Kleenex,
the tears are gone
but not the fears.


  1. OMG, I can so relate to this. I try to be optimistic all the time, but there will always come a time, that a pang of sadness is just so hard to ignore. Some nights are colder and longer, aren't they?

    Thanks btw for visiting my blog. I don't mind you sharing my quote. :)

    Hey, I hope you're okay.

    1. I'm trying to be ok. Struggling to find a job in my field. Thank you for your concern. Glad to know I'm not alone in my feelings... :)

    2. Oh, don't worry. Things like that. They're temporary. And I'm sure you'll get a job.

    3. Thank you. I'll keep you informed. :)

  2. Sad but very good. Spoken from the heart.


Thanks for reading/caring!
