How?

by markfahmy

how

How can you give up on the only self..
that never gave up on you?

How can you put a full stop to a story..
that involves other people too?

Love

by Nick Anthony

To think, you’re finally here with me!
After years of relentless, flirtatious banter,
Sometimes as playful as puppies, we were:
Other times more serious than a snake bite–
Always fruitless my affections were.

Unattainably distant, you seemed to me.
A hazy speck just beyond the horizon,
Across the ocean of my life.
And I, stranded on my little island,
Couldn’t possibly build a smoke signal
Tall enough to alert your look-out.

Cold metal bite

The urge to slice

My Heart Hurts

by 50djohnson

 

September 23, 2015 After the Storm! 075

The last few years have been strangely visited by the passing of so many friends, their parents, their spouses, their children, their best lifelong friends. When you go through such a loss it helps knowing you have friends, family, and God to turn to when the pain is overwhelming and just too much to bear.  However, there are many lonely nights where it is just you and God, sharing the burden of loss.

My Heart Hurts

Waking up this morning with life’s plans rolling along.

With children, family, and friends in their places where they belong.

Hearing that my cousin has cancer drove me to my knees in pain.

My friend called to say her granddaughter has a tumor on her brain.

Poetry challenge: Christmas poem

Watching the ugly come out
Stress and hurt
Fully deserved
As time marches steadily
Forward,
The happy and festive
Overshadowed by the
Circumstances,
Feeding the side that hates,

Life Matters(on suicide)

by 50djohnson

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The holidays are so lonely for so many. However, there is
always an answer better than taking your life.
Dear Heavenly Father in heaven,
I lift up this one who is broken.
The pain is too much to bear.
He can barely get up in the morning
Wishes he were with you there!

A song in cahoots with
The voice in my head,
A not so subtle
Whisper,
Urging me to
Check out,

I daydream about
Dragging a knife through
My face,
Make the outside
As scarred and ugly
Just like the inside.

Some days I push it off
Others I dwell,

I write to escape
The horrors inside,
Transforming them
Into caricatures
Easily dismissed,
I travel on.

Force a smile to your face,
When all you want
Is to crawl under the covers,
Sleep until
The malaise passes.

I Was Once Young

by Bipolar Opposites

I say “I’m depressed.”
He replies
“Well, undepress yourself;
Come to the court with the ball and the women.”
I look away listlessly,
Knowing the drugs are gone –
They have fled.
The bottles are sadly empty;
Empty cans riddled
The window sill.
The window pane
Screamed with dusty odium,
As the sun gleamed with antipathy,
The people
With cars sped by
Going nowhere;
Perhaps to heaven
Or perhaps to hell
And

I feel the cold edge
Blade upon my flesh
Hot blood
Follows the icy line,
A road into the
Blackness.

You sink down
Into the darkness
No hope, no caring,
Seeking a release
From the torment
And daily temptation.

Into the rotting caress,
Decay smells sweet
When it comes from
Within.
Chaos slowly swirls

sundays are my suicide days

by suicidallyanonymous

In the pit of your stomach,
miracle pills dissolve
to consume your liver
like a vulture.
When you die,
they will pluck your eyebrows
and turn your eyelids
inside out.
