I am the darkness
And I am the tears

I am the one
Who brings out your worst fears

I am the sadness
And I am the knife

That cuts you down
In the prime of your life

I am the coldness
And I am the rage

Which keeps your soul locked
In an iron cage

I am the heartache
And I am the pain

In case you haven't guessed yet
Misery is my name

Welcome to the site
I liked this, Christine, short and to the point. My only problem is the final stanza. You've already done a great job of describing this emotion, then you assume some of your readers won't have understood? Especially as you've said so in the title. That's how it seemed to me anyway. It's only a small point. Otherwise, good write, thanks for sharing it with us.
Take care
