SILENCED BY HOPE

Strange events happen your life,
some beyond your control.
They bind you
and cause you to stumble,
not allowing you to see
what happens before you.
They cause you to doubt
and to fear,
to question
and to break inside…

HELPLESS

To rather not care,
would be easier
than to feel helpless.
To see someone you love
in pain
and not to be able
to do anything,
to try reach out
to help
and to be…

YOU SHOULD HAVE KILLED ME

You should have killed me,
when you had the chance
but you never could.
Never allowed to die;
That’s my curse.
Instead I live
but yet dying;
Never to reach an end…

RAVENS

Ravens circling,
round and round;
I walk in despair.
Looking down,
stones and rocks,
dusty and dry;
A morbid figure
I am,
as I walk by.
Creatures of the night…

IF YOU CRAWL

If you crawl through a valley
of dry thickets and stones,
cut and scrape your knees;
Feel so weak
that you could collapse
like a pile of bones;
No hope but despair;
No peace but chaos…

CORNER OF THE BOX

I want to climb
into the corner of a box,
into the one on the lowest shelf,
in the furthest corner of the room.
I will hide inside,
in the corner of the box,
so no one will see me,
and if someone came into the room,
I could watch them
but they would never know I’m there…

IN A ROOM OF DESPAIR

Sitting in a room of despair,
huddled in the corner,
so alone,
so afraid,
so much in pain.
Echoes of the past,
haunting me,
for fear of it
coming after me again.
Tears dripping down my face…

Details

I AM HERE, ALWAYS…

Everyone has their own pain;
A shadow of their past
following behind them.
Secrets untold,
memories wished to be forgotten
and wounds that still
ache in the night.
To think of the past,
to remember the pain…

VOICES INSIDE MY HEAD

I fight with voices inside my head.
One voice so hard and mean,
screaming at me;
Angry at the people around me.
One voice hurting so bad,
crying and begging to be loved;
But wallowing in pain.
Both wanting life to end.
Then there’s my voice,
trying so hard to understand…

Details

LOVE IS MY CURSE

Love is my curse.
It sets me on a high,
makes me feel
like life is worth living,
like I am alive
and happy
… For once,
to be alive.
But love is my curse.
Fear torments me…

SO MANY WAYS

Knife shoved through my arm,
ripped from elbow to wrist;
Let it not be put back together;
Let it bleed me out.
Swallow broken glass,
fragments so tiny I cannot see,
slowly killing me inside;
No one can stop it;
Guaranteed to die.
Handful of pills…

WITH YOUR WORDS

You stand over me,
while I am on my knees,
wallowing in the dirt of my pain.
You pick up a knife,
and with your words,
you cut me
and rip me apart,
over and over.
Even when I beg
for you to stop…

Details

IF I…

If I scream
in the dark of the night,
no one hears.
If I cry
in front of thousand faces,
no one sees.
If I weren’t here,
at least
it wouldn’t hurt anymore…

DARKNESS WANTS TO PLAY

Darkness surrounds me.
It wants to play.
It wraps its arms around me,
holding me tight.
It says it’s my friend,
the only one that’s there.
It says everyone else is a liar,
and that they only pretending to care…

REALITY SHATTERS

Reality shatters
a stained glass window.
Everything you know,
lying there in pieces,
now forming a mess
and a pattern
you do not know.
As you go through,
piece by piece,
trying to put it back together…
