It started with a tiny speckle,
Just big enough to see.
It wasn't worth a battle,
As it was just meant to be.
But slowly it became a dot,
A blackness covering the flesh.
It wasn't a reminder of what I forgot,
But a revelation of something fresh.
Slowly it continued to change,
As it started to from a stain.
Wondering how I can watch my face,
And don't think of that pain.
The blackness kept on growing,
As soon it soaked my heart.
No more flesh is showing,
The blackness no longer is a part.
I have become one with darkness,
Because of all the wrong I did.
Kept in tome by my calmness,
Yet every time it's strength grows a bit.
Soon a flood will wash all away,
The blackness will siege command.
I just can't keep it at bay,
I am the one who I have damned.
My own mistakes created it all,
At first it seemed so innocent.
But it soon grew so tall,
And my heart suffers imprisonment.
After a long while, I just had to post something again.

It isn't that I didn't want to post nothing,
but after being five months unemployed I finaly got a new job but it takes up a lot of my time.

Hope you all like it.

When writing this, were you addressing a common issue via analogy?
Just wondering, because it seems it can be applied to things like alcohol abuse and racism.
Or maybe something more general, like hate, or anger.
Anyway, this was a pretty good read.
It truly is terrifying, being subject to imperfection you simply cannot contain. Especially if you decided against taking action when you could've.

First of all: Thank you :D,

It actually is about a misstake I made. When I was 14 I told a guy (clasmate) that I liked him. This didn't go that wel, he betrayed my trust, stabbed me in the back, and humiliated me in front of halve the school. My last 2 years I was called names and stuff, and eventually even neighbours began to gossip. Up untill the point I got in a fight with my parrents. So basicly it began with a small mistake, trusting the wrong person. But it became a huge problem when even my parrents got involved.

In the end I reconnected with my folks, and endured my last 2 years in that school. So everything endend well so to say.

But all in all it can be rather broadly seen, it can be about hate, anger, or something similair just like you said.

And indeed can be terrifying like you said, but in the endI always think it was all my fault, I should have know better... Although I know it doesn't help.

Sorry for the long and maybe tedious story :P

And thanks again for your reaction and support ;)

First of all: You're welcome. =p
Glad to see everything panned out well enough. Sorry you had to go through that at all, though.
Something like that can scar you and leave you utterly broken, unable to trust anyone but yourself.
Kinda remarkable how you can be so open about it. I don't even know if I can.
Then again, I haven't tried putting my worries on paper and publicizing it like you have. Maybe I should.
Again, it boils down to having the courage to make that step.
Anyway, yeah. Thanks, and you're welcome for everything. ;p
Just stay strong and keep barreling toward... well, wherever. You're capable enough.
