Desolation – A Poem

This poem is from my teenage years. It’s a little rough around the edges but I wanted to share it, unedited, from the raw emotions I struggled with as a teenager.


Cut off.

No more tears.

No more fear.

So scared.

Might hurt.

Can’t handle


Through the door.



No anger.

Play the cards,

Dealt to you.

Run and hide.

Peace at last.


Utter quiet.

I am
