• Friendship

    Friendship The rose awokeTo pastures newDew glistens Heralding the dawn Gone is yesterdayBringing bridgesTo fill a gap Taken forwardShe holds itDoesn’t stifle her NoticedShe must be gentleStep backLet it grow The rose awakesAnd dawn arrives Taken forwardShe will survive 🌷

  • Circled by confusion

    Circled by confusion Dissolving water, earth and fireIts higher than the airA process of engulfingThis ameobaIs enlargingAs it sticksTo what it's searching for A state of what is notIn a place where it must beSo to outer space I place it Castaway from the here and nowTo take me from the lightAn interplanetary trip An envelope of cosmic rays Surrounded by this unityA merging of solidity Atomical transfer - mystery To outer space I'm placed A barren landscape lies untouchedAs a cry of fear ...

    Dark Horses  In the warm light of dayDark horses run freeHaving no need to be heeded A freedom exudesBut a stampede is haltedAs they glide to a common goal A string of beautyWith pearls of wisdom A weave of loveSent from above Ideas being formedEntwining like danceEnticing each other to play They merge together Like a river flows Setting dominoes offon a path no one knows...........

    Tidal wave There's a burning ideologyThat's hard to competeIt's trying to deplete The lost and wildIt's a conspiracy from the elite We need airWe need light We need to fight For this plight Resolution for the massesThis situation's vacantNo need to turn the other cheekThe cheats can't winWe fight from within We need careWe have the right We need to ...

  • Kidnapper

    "Kidnapper" I'm just going through the motions Of life, with discombobulated eyesAnd red raw emotions.I cry someI sigh someI hold my heart and soulTo ransom.It's like everydayIs deja-vu as much asThe night is long and blue.I pace someI chase someI hold all that I'm notTo ransom.This is more than a lullAnd I don't know how muchMore of my being, I can spill. Kevin

  • Love And Pain

    "Love and Pain" Love is in pain, It would hurt less, If our hearts, Just; Stopped beating, Bleeding feelings, Pain is within love, As; Love is within pain, Sadly, It is all; Part of the game, It should be written, In the name, Why is it, No matter, The frame, Love always, Ends in pain.

  • Emotions

    They will come Every day I expect them but they are still Unexpected They do not come in short bursts They come in a huge overwhelming blast No way out of my body Sometimes I cry but They don't come out in my tears Automatically I bleed but They don't come out in my blood I panic There are no distractions big enough to offer relief I talk Sometimes they ease If I am alone ...

    Heal me I cannot heal myself Find me Don't leave me here alone You have left, for a while I have been put in a box Forgotten A broken toy Why mend me when there are other perfect toys? Ignore me Smash me into pieces it's all i'm worthy of Scatter me in the ruins of a once treasured land I am too heavy to blow away I will sink into the soil No flowers ...

  • Tiredness you got me!

    I wake in the morning and feel refreshed. I might not have plans but I hope something will inspire me and I will be off out to conquer the day, But you take over me, My body starts to feel heavy and my eyes struggle to stay opened. I yawn uncontrollably. Tiredness you are taking me down AGAIN. But I havnt been out yet, How can you possibly need to rest AGAIN? Are you telling ...

    Today I feel imaginary A creature concocted in a dreamer's mind Brought into being by thoughts and images Existing only when thought of Stop thinking about me and I disappear Today I feel like the world is imaginary The people too Brought into being by my confusion and loneliness Existing only when thought of Stop thinking about the world, the people and they disappear I am alone Am I perceived or am I the perceiver? ...

    You give me time and let me talk I feel like you understand me You're like a rock A very kind person so honest and true There are rarely any people who make me feel better like you do You see me as a person when others see me as a diagnosis When my mind is racing you can help me focus I'm low and i'm scared full of loss and despair I know i'll ...

  • Enough For Me

    I have had three men who go in and out of my head for years now. They are very important to me and, although they really distress me, I feel like I need them around. Recently I spoke to someone from my local crisis team who said I should try to accept them when they are around and when they aren't around. I've been trying to do this but it's hard because I feel like ...

  • Be Your Own Best Friend

    Be your own best friend- Look at you. You are still here. Still here, alive, with us and living. You've overcome so much, and yet the battle goes on. All you've achieved- amazing and more successful than most. Some dark days, some just days. Days you feel numb, or sad or nothing. But you do still have days. Those days are yours, you earned them. Darkness is never far from your mind. But it's your ...
