What do you think this poem is about? What obstacles do you imagine the speaker to be experiencing?  
I found it online an am curious to know what you all think of it.


I stayed with you through your darkest hour,

I did the same for others, too

Although, for me, I’m stuck with no power

The point has come. This time for me, not you.

The point which takes all it can devour.

Yes, the words I speak ring true:

My mind is the darkness in which makes me cower.

This darkness has taken me, and watched as others flew

My escape is anything but real,

The dark, you see, is horrid.

Cold is the one thing I feel.

My smile, I am starting to forbid.

Alone, they left me.

Tears, I cry.

Dark is all I see

I’m dying, and the only words my lips make out is “Why?”


I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell.

I get the same vibe. 

I'm curious as to know what caused the speaker to feel this way, though. Obviously, he/she feels left by a person or multiple people. I also feel like there are several layers to the poem's meaning I'm missing out on.

I'm using my imagination, but I want to know what others think.
