About the Poem

This is a sampling of my so-called happy life. Depression is an evil monster that drowns you in a deep, swirling black hole. Writing on subjects in the soul of depression has a healing quality - it inspires me to seek out my darker emotions to convert them into positive energy

Death Of An Angel

I once knew a lady named
Misery
she lived in a damaged world
she calls to me in transparent dreams

a lonely star
outside
the closed universe

she was my twisted soul

long ago
she experienced
the darkest of
pain

beauty was something
she could not
believe

I once knew an angel named
Evil
she traveled like a
ghost into the shadows

her heart was dying for some form of
life

all seems balanced
now
the angel burns to
die

When I was in sixth grade, we all had to find a poem that we felt we connected to and read it outloud to the class. I happened across yours somehow one day at school, and something sparked. This has been my favorite poem for six years. I've finally found it again, and I hoped to get in contact with you. This is beautiful. You have no idea what this poem means to me. It has touched me deeply. Thank you.

I had to read a poem to my sixth grade class and I read this poem aloud while everyone else read silly things. I've loved this poem for the longest time and it has a very powerful meaning to me. It was the first poem I memorized word for word. I really appreciate Joseph Smith for writting such a beautiful work of art.
