Troubled time

I miss you more than you will ever know 
Through your truest actions, your deepest feelings show.
Years of life don’t seem to matter 
Through time I watched our friendship shatter 
You said you’d never leave 
Those words in which I believed 
They turned out to be a lie 
Something in which I have to deny 
I knew care and caution were the key 
But I let my guard down finally 
A friendship I hope to reconcile
But our wrongs have us both in denial
Til death due us part were your words 
Ones in which this fight laid swords.

The Darkness Unfold

Crumbling beneath the mold
You have many stories untold 
Sitting in a world of darkness, with all of its temptation
Leaves you with a mind numbing sensation
The thought of suicide crossed your mind 
In your head your life plays on rewind 
You’ve been on this downward spiral
And some of it has went viral 
You claim the voices just get louder, 
Making the darkest of days crash like waves of the ocean
Causing in many people’s lives a huge commotion 
The cause of the current circumstances is self induced 
Many peoples trust you have completely misused 
Although I want to be there for you in your time of need 
My personal health is not where I can continue to let you feed 
When it comes to the boundaries I have set 
Many times you’ve pushed past them, leaving my sanity in debt
This fall is one I can take no longer 
It is in my efforts to try to remain stronger

Scattered Thoughts

Scattered thoughts, they roam around.
On the verge of a mental breakdown.
The screaming and the noise never stop.
They grow faster, louder, more intense
Barely ever making sense.
Begging, pleading, ask for help.
Screaming, crying, you get the round about.
They jump around inside your head,
Making you wish you were dead.
Fighting the urge of fatal actions,
No one ever sees her simple tactics.
The scars, she hides them well.
A simple tool she uses to rebel. 
The harm is known, but no one cares.
All she gets are peoples blank stares.
The hurt runs deep,
As it all seems to seep.
All her thoughts of anxiety
Have become nothing more than a society 
They raise her up and push her down, 
Frantically she searches all around 
Stuck in her depressive state,
Things always seem like a huge debate.
She does her best to succeed,
But sometimes she can barely breathe.
Her grip on life is fading fast.
No one knows how much longer she will truly last 
Her struggles bring her to today, 
To what she wonders what to say.
The thoughts that travel through her mind,
Race and taunt and keep her blind.

Damage repair

Through the past two years I have made one decision that has changed my life
One decision to walk away and end the strife 
Though times were bitter, they were also sweet
I chose not to accept defeat
Many people walked away 
Those of many who claimed to stay
In a time of crippling anxiety
I had to work on my propriety 
I had to realize I endangered my mental health
By condemning every inch of myself 
Trying to do what others thought best 
I had laid my soul to rest
Being a shell in an existing world
I watched as insanity swirled 
In a time where I had become toxic 
I knew I had to leave the feeling of being boxed in
Becoming distant from the world I knew 
And keeping in contact with very few 
I started to repair my soul
Against the damage that took its toll
For those of you that stuck around 
I’m forever grateful for your sound

Survivors

Your memory haunts my mind 
With actions you claim of being kind 
A trust completely misguided 
Leaves our friendship undecided 
You out of my life is what I wish 
But certain situations leave that thought adrift 
You words keep haunting me inside 
For now your presence I must abide 
Soon I hope to escape 
Every inch and thought of this rape
The feelings were a bit one sided 
But you knew that from arguments and words recited 
Even with the knowledge of the way I felt
You forced cards to be dealt 
A night supposed to be fun, we both got drunk 
And I left my mental state completely sunk 
An image of me getting sick 
For some reason gave you the right to use your dick 
Intoxication left me unable to consent but that was your cue that will can be bent 
For the memory I can’t recollect 
And yours only seems to be select 
Is this a fantasy in your head, I guess we’ll never know 
For your memory took a week or so
Your responses after the fact 
Well logic is what they lacked 
The truth is you crossed a line 
One I thought I had clearly defined

A life time fight

A fight that has been eternal lasting 
This poem is going to put on full blasting 
The gender bias of women being equal to men 
It’s one fight that has truly been 
And yet we still hold women to prove themselves beyond 
For they are still trying to break societies bond 
A conversation that has taken place 
Is one that will prove this undertaken case 
“Women are too emotional and get inside their head 
So men are better off for the team to be led”
Their sensitivities get to them
From where do all these ideas stem
Women, should learn to communicate when they struggle
But men should hesitate when they have too much to juggle 
It’s said they won’t ask for help just because they’re men
This is an idea that I don’t understand times ten
What’s fair for one is fair for all 
At least that’s what they say by government law

Demons of Depression

A cry for help that goes unnoticed 
One in which my mind lost focus
My silence shows the way I feel 
Until my thoughts have had time to heal
Losing my voice is not my choice 
Anxiety won’t let the words come out 
In my head they scream and shout 
They travel at a pace so fast 
A black shadow is what they cast 
Speeding faster than I can process 
My words have become my biggest losses 
Shutting down without control
It is something that takes its toll
For many people think they get to me 
But, for that’s not true reality
For I just need time to think 
About the way my words should link 
A minute to just think and breathe 
So my head is the space that I can leave

Addiction

You say you wanna feel high to numb the pain,
Leaving your loved ones to dry the stain  
Your actions, on others lives they do embark
Leaving them with little to lead you from the dark
Maybe those actions are not of your will
Stuck in an over loaded emotional state, ready to spill
You’re breaking down the walls unseen
Feeling like the worlds caving on the in between
Stuck in the delusions of addiction
Out to get you is the feeling from the friction 
The help only you can take 
No one can beg you just for their sake
To change you must be willing and want 
Sobriety is a life that no one else can taunt

Invisible Is Reality

Invisible pain 
So much that my body is strained 
Can’t function from day to day
Tired of living life this way
Capabilities once taken for granted 
Now understood they were a luxury planted 
Running, walking, and so much more 
Have become a struggle I must endure 
Some think it’s pretend to get out of responsibilities 
But I wish I could just regain all of my abilities 
Four surgeries in 
And I still can’t seem to win 
A diagnosis is just a guess 
Still waiting for these tests

Toxic Taste

Your words and actions have caused the blood shed 
From them the false perceptions have been fed 

In her life the stain has been made 
You can not take it back 
For others you have managed to persuade 

She now has an army to go against 
But instead in her thoughts she stays fenced 

In a world she feels hated
 trying to cope With the feelings of being jaded 

You took away the only thing in her life that was stable 
And now many people just give her a label 

Hard and harsh and over direct,
But no one thinks about their affect

When problems arise she is never given an opportunity 
Before being judged by an entire community 

You assume she wouldn’t be able to handle 
And her light is put out quicker than the flame of a candle ?? 

Told she is mean and angered 
But what really caused that 
Is her mental health you endangered.
