Hang Man

Outside he appeared to be jolly

Inside he was feeling hollow, empty

He could feel something creeping in his mind

It was dark, cruel, tempting, and unkind

He tried to ward it off, tried to fight it

But on days when he was awake and alone, he contemplated on it

Don’t think him too weak, it was a battle no one could see

It took over him so his life he took a finality

He bowed his head and there himself he hanged

The darkness he could no longer withstand

Whatever Happened?

Whatever happened to the person full of laughs?

The one full of warmth?

The one I shared things and secrets

Where is he now?

Why did you go?

Why take off somewhere we can’t reach you?

I could have told you to stay

That it was a bad decision

I wish you took a chance

Instead of leaving us forever
