Lets face it, Together.

Well let’s face it,

I am unwell

But I am well acquainted with this notion

Which you can easily tell

So Fear not for me

Please do not dwell

Rock bottom is my very own personal hell.

Madness is a monster

And my mind just needs some time

While I strip myself,

Myself of all my selfish grime

And the battle is what I live for

So I wont lose my life,

But who’s to say when one will,

Or will not die.

  1. Just keep writing what you honestly feel and that is what people will connect with. There are so many forms of poetry, while many rhyme, and many are formally structured, i enjoy writing the free verse poems that just flow out of my head. Occasionally having fun with poetry, when you feel like it, is a great idea.

  2. Publishing a piece is often the best way to find the mistakes! they seem to stand out in published form better than in the draft. Weird. I often have to edit my posts because I forget to add categories and tags.

    Great work. Well captured emotions.

  3. I like that you write real – we have to be authentic to be true to ourselves and to truly see the light in the dark times no matter what truth the light is telling or showing us

  4. Hi there. Thank you for visiting my blog and following it. I really like your blog design. This particular post is quite effective in its stark use of language and format. Well done!

  5. I like your writing. The brutal truth behind it reminds me of mine(partially). Your stuff is by far greater quality. I think for a lot of people, writing is the best form of therapy. A person can dwell in emotions not safe otherwise. Thank you for inspiring so many people on here.

  6. Hi – I discovered that you stopped by my neck of the woods – and following me – wow – thank you. The above is the first piece i have read of your and I am hooked – I am very much the same way – i write. Yes, sometimes it seems dark and dismal, but i write what i write – it makes me feel better. and I agree – i do believe there are others who read our darkness and feel less alone – more at ease, more hopeful. I know because i was one of the others and still am. xx

  7. oh! I feel so much for you, compassion, empathy, love… it will get better, I promise. if you can “make it through the night,” so to speak, you will see dawn… and it will be beautiful. unspeakably beautiful. then, you will use language to try to express what you have seen. but, it won’t be easy. it’s just as hard to describe light as it is darkness, to people who have only see shades of grey.

  8. Thank you for following my blog and introducing me to your blog, your desire to reach out to those who suffer similarly to you and take comfort and give comfort to those with the common struggle of battling mental demons, pain, darkness, or depression, is to me also one of my main purposes and resonates a lot, glad you are here.

  9. I love that you are able to express so much of “you” in your writing. When I was In high school my day was reflected in the pieces I chose to start off with during my piano practice time. I would gradually move, piece by piece through the spectrum of emotions until ‘peace’ filled me. I wish I could do it with writing. btw – have you written anything newer? I seem to be missing it, if so.

    • Melodymom, I have done a little writing here and there but have no been on my blog in sometime I started writing a book and found myself completely consumed with that for quite some time now it’s hard because my book is a whole new world of writing for me I was trying to flip back and forth between blogging and the book but the last few months have been very busy for me so I have not been able to find much time to write. Hopefully ill get back in the swing of things here soon

  10. This is incredible. It’s exactly why I started my blog, as well. For that one (or more) person out there that needs to know they are not alone. If you don’t know of it already, check out Andrea Gibson’s poem (on YouTube) called The Nutritionist. It’s one of the most incredible poems I have ever heard. She is a slam poet and she is amazing ❤ for some reason I think you might like her 😉 good for you for choosing to share your story and your writing…it takes a certain kind of courage to be vulnerable ❤

  11. Thanks for the follow and for stumbling onto my blog! Your stuff is a little darker than the material I usually read but you’ve got a great style and I appreciate your honesty. Very glad I took the time to stop by!!

  12. The spilt is why these mind dis-eases start. http://beinga2or1.wordpress.com/2014/09/28/the-split/
    We have been trained to allow the split character in the mind to control us: http://beinga2or1.wordpress.com/2014/09/25/from-the-heart-thoughts/
    You’ve been trained to compete, and that conflicts with something deep down, but that character, you are not. We’ve been ‘limited’: http://beinga2or1.wordpress.com/2014/09/26/self-awareness-limited-capacity/
