Misery Loves Company

The hole of unhappiness,
invites me in happily
and I am conforted by
what I am used to.
It smiles at me,
as I blanket myself
with all the self loathing
that permeates inside of me.
Anger becomes my friend
once again,
and a frown becomes
permenantly tattoed on my face.
I live in my own personal hell
of misery,
that I'll always be destined for heartache.
My heart starts to cry tears of blood,
but what I almost had.
the happiness that yet again,
slipped through my fingers.

Great and inspiring poem for troubled souls. What are we to understand by 'learn to recognize the measured dance that orders all our years'?
