Dark Abyss

Poem By Scarred Unknown

Dark abyss,
Circling around me.
Just breathe,
Remember the steps.
One, two, three.
Feel that pain?
Remember good things!
It’ll be ok!
I won’t die!
I can get through it!
It’s happened before…
Circles me,
Consumes me.
Frown to the ground
Remember to breathe…
One, two, three,
It’ll be ok.

Steps…
Take them…
One,
Two,
Three.
One it’ll be ok.
Two breathe again.
Three find something bright.
Just remember,
Don’t let it consume you…
It’ll be ok.
I won’t go,
I wont’ go again,
To that dark abyss.

I’m scared.
I’ll admit.
What will I do
If it gets me?
What if it gets me?
What if it takes out the light?
What if?
What if I don’t
Make it through this time?
What do I do?
What... One
Two three
Breathe

Very evocative and disturbing to those who suffer from depression. GW62

3 Feelings

There are a lot of different things
That go through my head
As I lie in bed
And think of you

My Hero (Dad)

you have been there for me
whether i wanted you or not
you mean everything to me
and i know it might not show

Feeling Indescribable

This feeling is indescribable
Yet it seems very liable
I don’t know what could be worse
Indescribable, yet so liable

To Be Found.

It’s funny, how much it hurts,
Just walking down the hall.
I can tell it wants let out,
Maybe just to run around.

Fall In Love Like In The Movies.

I want a love you see in the movies, to feel that feeling only there. I have tried to feel that feeling ‘fore yet all I get is pain and more. I long for it as we all do. Why can I not feel that feeling!
We long for a feeling only there, in movies see and known for true. In love with love we all are. I make no sense nor does this. I just wish for a love of loved back of movie dreams and movie past.
In movies is where we all see this feeling of love and feeling of dreams. I see it there it seems so pleasant, it seems as if walking on air. I see in movies the love we dream of, and think to myself why can I not have it? Why can I not feel it? I long for it, as if love is all that exists to make me happy to make me feel.
We watch in their eyes and see so much life. We see that there is none but the one in front of them. We think we can have it, that love in front of us. We think that it is real, the love in front of us. There is no such, that love on the screen. There is no such thing as true love.

All I Ever Wanted

All i ever wanted
Was love from someone true
All i ever needed
Was someone to hold and care for me
