depression-a poem

it seaps into your core
into your soul
you cant breathe
you cant do anything
but be engulfed by the blackness
the blackness that is depression
it tears you apart
rips into every fibre of your being
tells you your worthless
a nothing and nobody
and you believe it
even though other people tell you otherwise
you find it hard to hear their words
and believe them
depression takes everything
everything you know
and turns your life
upside down and inside out
until you cant take it
life seems unbearable
and so you wonder
how will I cope?
how will I get through this?
What will make it better?

2 AM random poem

2 AM
Wide awake
Scared to sleep
Scared of bad dreams
Scared of just everything
Heart pounds
Dont dare make a sound
Fearful of so much
Its so, so tough
Wanting to forget
Fall into a deep sleep
Forget everything
That threatens
Your very existence
As the clock ticks
You just sit
And think
Wonder when will you ever fall asleep…

*****
Birds fly high
Tweet tweet
chirp chirp
Tree top romance
is in the air
they frolic and fly
high in the sky
and sing their sweet songs
for us down below
we listen, mezmorized
to their sweet sounds
Tree top romance
As I sit, in a trans
Just listening, and watching
As their tree top romance
Blooms, ever so sweetly

*****
Did you pray for him
that he’d die
have to say
yes, i did
each day
each night
i prayed and I prayed
as if my life depended on it
I prayed he’d meet a grusome end
the man who abused me for all those years
I prayed he’d die a horrific and painful death
justice was never served
so why not?
why shouldnt he die a horrible and very painful death?
He hurt so many
It wasnt just me
no, he hurt many
I was one in a long line
So…
Today, as I write this
I am praying for him
I am praying
He’ll die, a lonely and broken man
He deserves that
For everything he’s done
And I, I deserve peace
Peace in the knowledge that he’s gone
Forever!

I’ll never forget, how I wish I could…

hands tremble
lips quiver
slowly i move
unsteady on my feet
hands shaking
i try to sit and I try to write
I type a little
then have to stop
sadness bubbles up
to the surface
the words spill out
on the page
sadness turns to anger
why did this all have to happen
so many questions
unanswered, when will I get answers?
probably never…
how to cope
what to do
as i sit and stare
thoughts fill my mind
how can i ever
forget?
i cant, but oh how i wish i could…

Try, try, try

like a torrent
emotions engulf me
threatening my sanity
splat splat
i sit
I shudder
I shake
I try to take
Deep breaths
No good, I’m being swallowed whole
Eaten alive
Trying, trying, trying…
But unable to speak
Unable to do anything
But flounder and flail
And try again
To swim to the surface
