The Loss

Sick with myself, but I've got no one else, 
so I give it to myself it's the only thing that helps 
it's the same thing this pain thing that keeps me from sleeping 
and screaming that god I must be dreaming 
and I can rest in peace and at least cease to be 
cease to see those things in me that make me wanna cease to breath 
and ceased to need and ceased to feed, sickness that's in me 
this is all that I can be, I can't breath as I bleed

    Could you actually email me? instead of on poetry soup? I mean unless you don't want to, but it would be easier than opening my email to open a new window to see what you wrote lol. I'm always on cause College students tend to always be on the computer lol. ~Michaela~

    I'm not good at giving advice especially because I went through what your feeling, maybe not the same things but your feelings echo how I felt a couple years ago. I still struggle a bit but I'm mostly over it. All I can say is, do you believe in God? Cause he can really help, especially when you don't want to think about all the bad that's happening, because he doesn't give us things we can't handle. And storms will come but they will always pass. Like I always say, hang in there.

    This write is so sad alexz. You can be more than this, you have to believe you can, and i know that's hard and it may seem like you can't but you can. Always here to chat, keep writing :) ~Michaela~

    you have to grow out of somethings. reach a legal age. your being smothered by parents; but thats a good thing believe it or not. keeps you off of drugs from teen pregnacy and std's and if your lucky the kind of love that might make you kill yourself. get you into college or married to a succesfull man, yes, MAN!

    This poem is so sad and disturbing. I'm hoping a talented poetes, such as yourself, has the strengh to see her own self worth and importance. You have a creative talent to write - it reflects your ability as a feeling, accomplished artist - please keep that in your mind, heart and soul. Wishing you joy, love and happiness during this Holiday season. Peace always, John

    Pretty grim Alexz! Visceral and engrossing, like watching the aftermath of an automobile accident... compelling! Best wishes, Keith

    What is it with you Alexandria? Why are you so trapped and bent on pain? Does it all infatuate you dear? Why do you hold onto it? Can you not, find a better way? We have spoken of this before-the darkness or light wherein one chooses to dwell? For either or-shall beget either or! Its really up to you dear! Only you can choose?!~"Love Always To All You Love, John!:)
