Book: Juxtaposed Darkness - Poems of depressions, self-injury, and the search for hope by Cindy Darkheartcategories: Book, Depression, Self-Injury, Darkness, Sad Poetry, Dark Poetry
Cindy Darkheartabout this book: Juxtaposed Darkness is a dark poetry book. The book examines feelings of desperation and futility stemming from depression and self-injury. The cover photo is of The Garden of the Blind. It struck a cord due to its relation to darkness as in spiritual blindness. A garden is usually something that brings about pleasant feelings like the scent of flowers. It was taken by Red Baklava Photography and I just love the many ironies of the image.
I have always been a fan of the macabre. A love of the macabre mixed with the woes of mental illness equal Juxtaposed Darkness. The poems are raw and real. Just as i am a work in progress, so is my work. The poems are a fusion of darkness and a small bit of hope. It is my hope that these words truly provide a peek into my life as one who has been depressed for thirty some odd years. It is also my hope that those who may feel as lost as I, can find comfort in knowing that they are not alone.
