When I Was 21

The very gifted and wonderful Elyse published a thought-provoking (as usual) piece the other day about dreams and aspirations at the age of 21. This was prompted by her friend’s 21-year-old daughter who must have surgery soon that might render her unable to have children, something she has already decided against. Elyse began her post … Continue reading

The Voice of Depression

Nobody likes you. There’s a voice in the back of my head. It’s an evil bastard. It’s the voice of my depression. I normally don’t hear this voice, or, if I do, I can ignore it. But when I sink unwillingly into a depressive state, that voice rises. It get’s louder. It tells me things … Continue reading

Insomnolence

I stare at the ceiling I stare at the wall Despite my fatigue My eyelids won’t fall It goes to work The beast within Its task to accomplish An evil grin Wicked thoughts roam Pervade my mind Anarchic demons In my head confined What ifs aplenty What coulds abound A pool full of worries In … Continue reading

Bleed With Me

In your darkest hour Your inmost despair I never left your side I was always there I held you close While tears you shed Rolled down my shoulders You emotionally bled I bled with you Held you tight Wiped your tears Night after night I walked with you Through decisions unwise I talked you through … Continue reading

Watch You Drown

Like an anchor in water, you sink in despair Your heart is beating, but your mind isn’t there A battle you wage, internally Fighting demons only you can see I listen, I watch, observe helplessly While you lose your struggle with insanity I extend a hand, but you’re just out of reach “Come back to … Continue reading
