    A Lot Of It

    The abyss calls Seductively beckoning, To be satisfied, Fulfilled, I edge closer. The precipice Of Life and Death Either way I go, Or fall, I’m screwed In Life, pain Stabbing at my heart Ripping at my unsound mind Insanity Becomes reality In Death, release But potential...

    Look into a crowd of smiling teens Many see all their smiles and boisterous laughter If you really knew them you would see that most exorbitant veneers Winsome masks and brusque conversations to hide behind All of them wondering with fear and hope Will someone see through...

    This Is One Of Many I Have Written During My Dark Times

    I have been writing poetry for years and I am on many poetry sites.  Here's an example of one for you: More than the introspective reflection of the tear as perceived by another pair of eyes Beyond what can be extrinsically manifested into the dimensions of the...

    A letter to myself. I hate you.

    I thought you were better. 3 years of lying. Saying life was better. All the while, In denial. Stopping medication. "Clarity." Moving across the country. "Solidarity." Losing jobs... Wrecking relationships. Burning bridges. No doctor visits. New relationship... New requirements...

    They Turned Us Away

    Nothing

    Nothing is important. Not your tears. Not your love. Nothing matters. Nothing at all. It dosent matter, if you are bleeding. Not even if you are deing. No one really cares. In a 100 years no one will remeber your name. Why even try? When you know that you are nothing. How can...

    Poem Title: the Smallest Key to the Darkest Cell

    A fear but a hope A want you can’t have When seeing is hurting And every stone blocks the road And you want to go home and just be alone You want to cry but you’re too strong So you drown it all and then burn it away And it comes back to get you...

    The Cryer's Prayer

    Feel like crying. As if my tears and pity would be The closest intimate companion I’ve ever had. Travelling down my cheeks soaking my pillow Blowing my noise Mediating Praying Oh Father please Hear my cry Forgive my sins Provide comfort and healing Direction and blessings Amen

    Sort of Sad

    Roses are red - violets are blue and I feel sad because rhyming poetry is all that I can do. Cheers!

    ‘Regret’

    The cars they howl and the trucks they whistle As they pass my window That is half open I can’t see outside but I know what’s there The cool frosting air It reflects an image to my mind Of the stars way up high The bank of the motorway is lined with litter Blown about by...

    Death Of Her Love

    Your silence tells me all i need to hear. There's no chance, you'll ever want me near. Even tho i now face my worst fear, i refuse to shed a single tear. I know we were destined to be mates, but i also know its far too late. I destroyed the door and locked the gate, now eternal...

    I Told You.

    On this cliff’s edge I stand to my pledge Here among the rocks and grass I await time to pass I told you I’d be here In our place with nothing to fear. I’ve stood here since you went away, I shouted after you that I’d stay. You said what we had was through And I said...

    Let It Out!

    Since i don't really have anyone i cant freely open up to, i only write poetry when im sad/depressed. And it does help a lot. It's a good way to let all my emotions out. (:
