THE DARKER SIDE OF ME by Jeffrey Littrell


It’s the darker side of me

a side I seldom share

born from a place of anguish,

loneliness and despair


It brings to forth an anger

that I just can’t suppress

It’s a cold, black hell I dwell in

the spawn of misery and duress


It’s the darker side of me

there’s comfort in the pain

I feel sadness in the sunshine

cleansing from the rain


It’s all that one can do

far more than I can bear

to put one foot ahead of the other

when I honestly don’t care


I can’t tell if the chaos

or the sorrow’s winning out

I sometimes sit in silence

sometimes, I scream and shout


I wish I could be like you

and feel happiness and glee

for me, that’s never in the cards

It’s the darker side of me
