Self Inflicted Grave

Updated on October 11, 2017

Israel is a fan of many types of music and loves to write, not in any particular order and does them usually at the same time.

I dig my own grave,

Day after day of turmoil,

Such a craze in my mind,

Myself I cause pain after pain,


Inside forever hurting,

These emotions I try to hide,

Self-righteous infliction of the heart,

Black holes I crave for,


Bottomless pits and dire situations,

I sit here and wait patiently,

To the darkness I am drawn to,

A torn soul trapped eternally,


Please forgive me in this life,

For I am the cause of my own strife,

Torturing and full of angst,

Bury me with it under six feet of earth...

      These are emotions I have really felt at one time or another. Writing has helped me express how I feel many times and is a great outlet for me. I apologize for your loss, my condolences on the deepest of levels. Stay strong.

      A most dark and emotional poem. Hope these are just poetic thoughts and not how you really feel. I am dealing with my own painful issues and can relate in a way to this since my husband passed on in August. I know I have to look toward tomorrow but some days are just soooo hard.
