In My Despair | Poem

Author of Image/Art Unknown
Colour and contrast edited by me.

When blood runs thin, the wounds grow deeper.
A dark poem written and created by me - STEPHEX.



  1. Wow, very interesting... it seems to embody many contradictions (like real life, I suppose).
    Like in the first stanza it seems pessimistic ("I lie in the emptiness... the moon, no longer present.") yet also a bit optimistic ("the bath, half full" [as opposed to "half empty"]).
    Or in the last stanza: "ALL the pain..." (plural) versus "MY ONCE clouded life" (singular).
    Once again, I feel the true meaning escapes me, but it is something to contemplate... thank you!

    1. Thank you! :)

      I always find it interesting to see how others perceive my poems and I'm glad it got you thinking and analysing it, that's the best part about poetry!
