Gloom


Poem 14 for National Poetry Writing Month. This poem brings you more melancholy inspired by the gloomy day. This poem was written in the form of freestyle, where I use words as they come to me to make them flow.

Gloom

NaPoWriMo
My weary head
Is filled with gloom.
I feel the dread
Of impending doom.
Want to lie in bed
But not in this room.
Boom.
Brain explodes.
Feeling numb.
Traveling roads.
Feeling dumb.
Blowing loads.
Feeling scum.
Come.
By my side.
Swallow pride.
Be my bride.
Let us hide.
Already tried.
Until we cried.
Died.
Wide open.
Like a book.
Like a crook.
I was took.
Like a rook.
From the hook
To the tomb.
Feeling dead
While flowers bloom.
My weary head
Is filled with gloom.
