I'm pretty sure I'm not going to get much feedback on this, if any, but I would love for you all to let me know if you like this at all. Thanks in advance! :D

"Mind in Darkness"

Lost is his sense of time.
Perfect is the darkness around him.
He is in the deep end of it.
Direction no longer matters.
For all he knows,
he is lying on the ceiling.
They say a mind breaks in darkness, but
his is just the contrary.
He has never felt more alive, more complete.
It surprised him at first,
by how little he began to care about things.
All he had were his thoughts and
that's all he needed.

So he believed......

Soon his thoughts began to attack him.
They toyed with his emotions.
They even forced him against himself.
Shame; the marks on his head were not enough.
Shame; they didn't stop the thoughts.
Shame; the rock he used was the closest thing he had-
closest thing he had to sanity.....

It is interesting, has some nice imagery in a dark paranoid kind of way.

Thanks. I'm not exactly sure what state of mind I was in at the moment, but I was in Geometry class at the moment, and I absolutely hate math, so I'm sure you can come up with some connection there.

If nothing lasts forever. Why even bother for forever? This is my moment. "Now" is what I have with whatever I am. So let me savor this moment. It's a moment of an 'esteem bath'. Let me feel beautiful, strong and desired. Let me not worry about what these eyes will hold for me tomorrow. For I cherish, what I see in them today! Set me free from the promises of lifetime loyalties. Just be mine, heart and soul for this very moment. This moment is precious as long as it lasts. For if I could live it to its fullest-this is forever.

Wouldn't you agree that we often feel a sense of security if we go on thinking something will last forever?

The poem is awsome, and very true. it could be anyone, in that situation. and i think its true when you are at your lowest point and time does not matter, the only thing that does matter is your thoughts. that is the only thing that will get you out of this low point of their live. and it feels like the darkness is perfect but actually the darkness is the most imperfect thing that is in that situation.
in my opinion this is a very good poem.
