Trapped Within, My Lonely Darkness

’Trapped Within, My Lonely Darkness’

So alone I feel
Lost within myself
Only I know what I know
With no one to share it with
With no one to help me understand

Forever stuck in the future
Alone and lost in the present
Fear is red, I am color blind
Lost and trapped within

Why am I lost alone
Trapped within myself
My lonely darkness
Alone I shall suffer

Trapped Within, My Lonely Darkness by 


A poem about my anxiety disorder…an abstract view on the whole thing as I have learned to deal with it…

I am a graphic designer and fine artist. I am an obsessed designer and compelled artist. I enjoy painting, drawing, creating my own textures and images for my designs. Through my art and designs I hope to awaken raw emotions from the viewer.

    I can never say that I know how you feel because that would sound insincere. A raw and honest piece.

    These feelings you express are all too familiar to me. I’m fighting my demons till this day.

  • It is hard…I sometimes find it easier to embrace it and accept that is who I am…but than sometimes I wish it would all just go away…best of luck to you. Best Wishes… :)

    Congrats on your features.
    I don’t really know how it is for you but the line Forever stuck in the future/ Alone and lost in the present resonates with me and my own anxiety issues.

    I believe I have spent many years there myself, but if love is not the answer, it is at least what brought me relief. In essence we are all alone and you say it well. I think some of us mind it more than others.
