Nightmares, perhaps a chemical imbalance
Edge me ever closer to the precipice.
Granted, I have had a favorable life;
Adorned with friends, family and children,
Time, health, home, finances have been kind.
In spite of all this, happiness eludes me.
Venom spews from my lips quite freely
Instigated by a darkness living deep within.
This I must tame if I am to find lasting peace
Yet I question daily, my ability to do so.

Wow! Very well done!
Thank you Martha, I love writing acrostics. 🙂
They are fun to play with. (*grins back*)
Some days I wonder if negativity is a sentient shadow that spends its life testing us. Just feels like it can never go away for long.
You may be right, just when I think I am over being negative something causes it to rear its ugly head again, but I am hopeful that I can overcome it. 🙂
It’s like you can never get away from the edge of the abyss.
We’ve all been there haven’t we? You recount it very well as usual!
Thank you, I was in a kind of negative mood yesterday and this piece just flowed.
I love reading acrostics! I tried writing one once, but it didn’t work. I asked Sreejit (my son) for help but his answer just scrambled my brain. Maybe I will learn how to write poetry in the future!
It just takes a little practice, I’m sure that you can do it. 🙂
I imagine so too. But it isn’t likely to happen for awhile!
I love it… You have a way with words. One day I will try one myself and see how it comes out… Thanks for the inspiration..
My pleasure and I’m sure you will do fine when you do. 🙂
