Poetry- The Dark Room - By Yolanda Lear

Updated: Feb 21, 2021

Poem, taken from Chapter 1 of my book 'The Journey To An Undefeated Mind'

I wonder,

Do they see the pain that lingers behind my eyes?

The Fear disguised as confidence,

I call it Isolation, but they say I’m shy

Feeling trapped outside,

But free inside

Dark room, because the light blinds my eyes

Music to help calm the mind

But I shortly turn it off

Because I just want to be alone

Just me and my thoughts

Lying in bed, with the cover over my head

Shut out from the world, because that seems best

My belly is singing, but I’m too weak to move,

Lay there in hunger, as my weight starts to reduce,

Or it’s takeaways, deliveries, because it’s so hard to move

No motivation to do anything,

This pains too real,

Bills climbing up,

I don’t know what to do

But this dark room seems perfect to hide from what’s real
