Sleeping In #poetry #poem

Thanks to 8tracks for the image.

Thanks to 8tracks for the image.

I pray.

I know He has laid my path for me.

I just need to follow it.

But diversions distract me.

And i want to sleep away

the days that hurt.

 

I fight.

You say that i’m the strong one.

I don’t think so.

The struggles defeat me.

And i want to sleep away

the days of anger.

 

I cry.

The tears draw lines on my cheeks.

I just wipe them away.

But more tears replace them.

And i want to sleep away

the days of sadness.

 

I’m so tired of doing this alone.

I’m so tired of wanting to share.

I’m so tired of looking for you.

And so i will sleep away

the days that overwhelm me.

Depression is… #poetry #poem

rain

Some days depression is the rain

that patters on my bedroom window.

It keeps tapping and tapping

to remind me of its presence.

 

Some days depression is nightfall

with its lack of light and heavy eyelids.

It urges me to sip a drink

to forget it ever existed.

 

Some days depression is a ponytail

and pajamas and slippers.

It is resisting a new day

when yesterday isn’t over yet.

 

Depression is laziness and sleep.

It is frustration and anger.

It is the tears in my eyes

that i don’t let fall.

 

At the mere scent of its presence,

i take the antidote

tiny and round

and hope this time

it works.

Who do you think you are? #30in30 #make30 #poetry

Thanks to Catching Fire for the photo.

Thanks to Catching Fire for the photo.

Who do you think you are?

Wanting me one more time?

I am fragile still.

A shell of who I ever was.

 

You tell me that you love me

That I’m the only one.

Does she know that?

The one you called “most beautiful”?

 

I will grow strong.

I will move on.

I will find love

That isn’t a lie.

 

I threw away 16 years

In an attempt to make us whole

And now you say

It’s all my fault.

 

I do not accept you

As you are.

I constantly revisit

Our tortured past.

 

Who do you think you are?

Blaming me for your abuse?

I am strong now.

Strong enough to walk away.

Not For Me

I have ev’ry reason

to be filled with all this rage.

It bubbles deep inside of me

and spills across this page.

It isn’t me

.                I worry for.

It isn’t me

.                you need to love.

The black sheep coat

you gave to me

.                I put it on;

.                I wear it out.

It fits me like a glove.

Yet these young eyes

that look at me –

searchingly, questioning –

I have no answers,

.                can’t you see?

It was us who left you.

We traveled down the coast.

We fought against the demons.

We ran from every ghost.

When we returned

to where you stood,

I suddenly realized

It was you

.                who had left.

I am dead

.                in your eyes.

Black Sheep Coat

The black sheep coat you gave to me... it fits me like a glove.

Anger

So happy...goin' to the fridge...

So happy... taking out the peanut butter... the jelly...

It’s starting to boil,
the anger I feel.
From inside my nostrils
and down to my heels.

Dark smoke is streaming
out of my ears.
Don’t think I’m crying.
That’s sweat, not tears.

My face is turning
a dark shade of red.
Now somebody answer!
Who ate all the bread?!?

AAaargh!!
