The Dark Corner

In the middle of life

You might find yourself

In a dark corner

Looking at the success of others

The beautiful life of your former friends

That now avoids you like the plague

Because you are in… that dark corner

Where they don’t want to be

Where you don’t want to be

If that is the case

My only advice is to

Find something else of value

Something that give the power

To live and thrive or

At least get by

Cold Water

When the anxiety gets

Too mighty

Too strong and powerful

Like a river of rage

And fear

Cold, cold river

Like in the far north

Where the trees will not grow

One try to survive

It is hard and confusing

Just being here

Eventually it might work

At the moment

I am under the ice

Looking for open water

And bluer skies

Desperate

Pain is a useful strategy

Sometimes it is working

Most of the times

It does not

Just blocking all intentions

All actions

Still it repeat it self

Again and again

Locked In

Daniel Stintzing

Closed perspective, closed people

I do try to learn from my mistake

Maybe this is possible

Maybe not

Slowly moving masses of snow and

Really cold weather

Remains me why I once left this country

Now I am a prisoner here

This great gilded cage

Makes the choices rather

Limited
