Anxiety Despair by Jose Jurado Symptoms of Mental Illness


The woes of night will come

whether in suffering or death

A ghoulish shade dance macabre

Its devilish dance bewitch

Our mind indulged unbearably

The miseries of despairs

The soul dies in the lowest of the darkest-pit

In that last hour before dawn

Evil whispers in my ear

The poison of his words

And in that cesspool of anxieties

The playground of abysmally spiraling miseries

in that dark pit

An isolation pit

which the world shuns

Lights out!

Everyone is shut off

And during that disconnection

The dark consumes me

And my dog shaking leg

Prevents my sleep

Restless and unbearable to cope to

These long winter nights

Cast its shadow early

Transcending the turmoil of the mind

And in that oblivion

I suffer the darkness of the night.

Thank you Jose for sharing your poem highlighting symptoms associated with mental illness!
