In the poem you will see a line:

As you wait and cry
You wonder if you should just die

That was NOT meant to be a casual joke, suicide is a serious thing and it mainly comes from when people are depressed or lonely
Whatever you do:

I'm speaking as someone who attempted suicide (I guess I'm a survivor- I dunno) - It's not a joke and it takes lives

No matter how hard it is
Try with all your might to fight ebony

Thousands of people die from suicide every day.

It is not a joke

The Ebony is as sad
As quite drops of rain
Each drop another pang of pain

This is all you can feel-
In the Ebony that is

The Ebony affects everyone- even kids

As it takes every joyful memory-
Even ones of your family

You realize it has no care
And you stuck in its core

A deep bottomless pit
All you can do is sit and wait

For the Ebony to leave
And set you free.

And as you wait and cry
You wonder if you should just die.

The Ebony affects everyone
Even kids.

There is no way to fight it

You are only a leaf in the breeze
Begging on your knees
To be set free from the pain
And to feel joy again

And the Ebony chuckles and says with a cry-
"A bargain? Think again kid."

Alas, you are stuck with the Ebony forever,

No matter what time of day
Or the weather

The Ebony will be there staring at you
Laughing as it sees you wallow in shame

To it, this is just a game.

And even when you think you fought it
It will be there growing on you like moss

And the Ebony will be there forevermore

Always watching you in the shadows

So next time you feel like your alone
Know it is the Ebony haunting your home

Even more notes:
1) As mentioned before SUICIDE IS NOT A JOKE
2) The Ebony is the personification of depression and loneliness
3) The name 'Ebony' doesn't mean anything, it's meant to be like a void type color in wood, it has nothing to do with the skin tone

If you have any questions about the poem please comment or PM me

Also fun fact in my poem journal (yes I have one of those, If a little germ of a poem comes into my mind I won't remember it until I get to my laptop) The story is 3 pages long and I did it at 10 pm 0o0

So sorry if it's sloppy
I was tired.

But it the mods already saw it and put it on the pop reel its probably safe enough to be on the website

I think it's great! The one think I would suggest is that for a poem this deep, words like "kids" feel very unpoetic and kinda stick out like a sore thumb... Other than that it's so good!!
