Tick tock, the time goes by.
I lay so still and wonder why.
Thoughts racing through my head.
Almost think I'd rather be dead,
Then go through these pointless motions.
Am I depressed or devoid of emotion?
With no happiness, I only feel pain.
Faking this smile is just a drain.
I don't know how much til I crack.
Almost wish for an anxiety attack.
What comes next? More of the same?
A suicide shouldn't be my aim.
When all seems lost, what do you do?
Getting some sleep would be something new.
Lovely work, thank you for submitting it to the Weekly Review; I'm publishing it in today's issue.
I don't think you were actually asking, but when all seems lost I turn to Jesus
But there are things out there that can actually help...
There are things out there that will help for a little while. But I believe Jesus is the only one who can satisfy completely and is the only one to have a lasting affect. But Jesus didn't say we can't take medication or help from others to make things better, He just ultimately is the one that can help.
Perfect description of insomnia.
This is a really pretty poem.Very well written my friend,very well written.
Just write out whatever your feeling without any kind of rhyme or reason to it. I find it easier to rhyme because it distracts me from what I'm thinking and I can get it out easier, but a lot of people seem to write best free-form since they don't need to focus on rhyming or anything.
Yeah but then I feel like if it doesn't rhyme it's just some big old list of my problems or something.
There's nothing wrong with that. Anything that makes you feel better is worth doing. I used to be pretty bad with my poems. It wasn't necessarily that I wrote bad poetry (I'm unable to judge my own), but I hated them and was upset at myself for writing so badly. But I still wrote because getting out those emotions was worth it. Since recently, I had only written one poem in the last 6 years. I guess my self-esteem has raised because now I'm able to write without any verbal abuse and even post them on deviantART. So now they're really helpful for me. I don't know if they would do the same for you, but all that matters is doing whatever you want regardless of what others (or another side of yourself) think.
You really think so? This is my first time really showing my poems.
