I Sing A Song Of Sadness||Review for review

By: KBridget


Golden light pours in through my window, coaxing me to start my day
I draw the curtains shut and go back to bed
There is no point in waking up
Sleeping hurts less, anyway

The smell of food invites me to indulge
My stomach churns and pushes me out of the kitchen
Weathered hands shake from malnutrition 
I can't remember my last full meal

Reading, writing, dancing, singing
Things I used to love
No more motivation, no more energy
All I sing now are my songs of sadness


Peer Review

It really touched my heart because I've felt this way before. Depression and anxiety really mess you up like this.

Nothing needs to be indulged in, in my opinion It's just enough. First one, not wanting to get out of bed or do anything. Second one I can relate too all too well. Third, well, I don't think there needs to be anything said for that one.

Reviewer Comments

A masterpiece, is what I'd call this. It's such a relatable piece for me, and really tugs at my heartstrings. I can feel the entire poem in my soul. It's like broken glass, and I want to reach out and pick it up.

Amazing work! Hope you're having a splendid day // night, and if you're not, I certainly hope it gets better. <3
