    Isolation

    Isolation is a clown’s smile

    Painted red

    Isolation is a lover

    Because its kisses are sweet

    Isolation is a tiger’s claw

    Extended weapon

    Isolation is a cloak

    Like nights lure

    Isolation is fear

    Will you even know?

    Isolation is a capturer

    Stockholm’s friend

    Isolation is mental illness

    Because it’s all in your “head”

    Isolation is a deadly prison

    Like Bethlem screams

    Isolation is voices

    No one else can hear

    Isolation is

    Suicide

    Sorry I didn't post. The days got away from me. Trying to catch up on homework.

    Swing

    Swing

    Flying through the wind

    Curling your legs underneath you

    Swing

    Head tilted back

    Laughing because it’s uphill

    Swing

    Scraping feet against gravel

    Trying to slow the up and down

    Swing

    Feet hitting the ground

    But you can’t even rise from the

    Swing

    ---

    Depression and mania

    Swings in the middle of the night

    It’s creative outbursts

    Suicide whispers

    The dancing in the living room

    Naps throughout the day

    But when night hits

    Once again

    The grinning demon

    Swings

    Four: Inner Child

    You’re four

    I can still hear you cry

    You almost never laugh

    Sometimes you’re angry

    Otherwise, desperate

    Affection is lost now

    Isolation is welcomed

    You’re four

    Eyes are blue

    Hair matted to head

    When you smile

    It’s snatched away

    Like a starving child

    Reaching for that bread

    You’re four

    Never growing

    Always stuck

    I don’t know

    How to heal someone

    Who wants everything

    And nothing

    But you’re still

    Four

    Someday Again……. #Life #MightyPoets #poems

    Someday again I will feel the movement of you inside my womb

    Many will say I already have four children

    Many will say you will be another blessing

    I wanted you for so long, but my womb will not behave

    Praying each time I see a positive ➕or a sign of missed periods 🩸but everytime it’s a negative ➖💔….. I cry in silence

    If my Ovaries wasn’t so deceiving , I would be carrying you or ready to give birth.

    Poor Ovaries screams every time I see a baby

    I get so jealous seeing other women being pregnant 🤰🏽 it hurts when they announce 📣 the news on Facebook or Instagram

    All i can do is congratulate 🎉them when the truth is I’m hating the fact they get to enjoy that moment

    I’m not a jealous person so why do i feel that way all the time?

    Even if I was able to conceive another baby , not a single person would be happy

    But at that point i wouldn’t give a shit…..

    Someday again,

    I will be able to experience the pain and joy all over again it’s worth the pain.

    I have no other words to say

    But i pray one day i will be able to hold you in my arms…..

    Someday again.

    Don’t Tell Me How! #Depression #poems #depressionexpressions

    Don’t tell me how to think, dear,
    should ever feel the same
    Just because you’re blind to it
    isn’t immunity to pain…
    Life’s a loop of memories,
    existences in different times
    all of these accumulate
    and all become your mind
    So don’t tell me how to feel now
    while living in one long play….
    It never ends, where’s the end?
    Don’t tell me how to feel, dear
    til you see all sunlight fade away…
    hopelessness evades you now;
    I pray it stays the same
    If I tell you how to think, dear
    just know, it’s ‘cause that’s where I’ve been
    all that we can do now, it seems….
    is to drag these chains until the end

    How Do You...? ....... #MightyPoets

    How do you let someone kiss you
    When their lips are a nightmare reseen?

    How do you let another hold you
    When their touch makes you want to just scream?

    How do you lay down next to someone
    When you feel as rigid as a board?

    How do you let another inside
    When your heart's padlocked right to the core?

    How do you open up to someone
    When you can't put to words what you feel?

    How do you give another your life
    When your life doesn't even seem real?

    How do you ground yourself to someone
    When your need is to break free and fly?

    How do you learn to trust another
    When your walls are built up to the sky?

    How can you share this time here on earth
    When you have not a thing left to give?

    How do you turn such pain into gain
    When you're too scared to let go and live?

    How do you ease the panic inside
    When fear is a grip that won't end?

    How do you quell the heartache and pain
    When you're unsure which wound you should tend?

    How do you give your soul up to love
    When you still haven't found the right key?

    How do you attach yourself to a world
    When invisible's how you feel seen?

    How do you heal those scars of the past
    When bandaids are in short supply?

    How do you learn you're more than enough
    When tears flow nonstop through your eyes?

    How do you fix this pattern of hurt?
    Well this I so wish that I knew;
    Cause I haven't a clue to the answers we seek
    To each question that starts, "How do you…?"

    The Struggle .......... #MightyPoets

    I know many people who have joined AA
    Yet I never stepped foot in that door;
    I struggle with other addictions besides
    Still I leave myself open for more.

    I love how others say my story inspires
    Yet I feel like a fake and a fraud;
    As I look in the mirror, whom there do I see?
    That little girl still hurt and lost.

    I wake up each day with the best of intent
    Yet fear and doubt usually win;
    I force myself to take a shower and dress
    But that's where it seems to all end.

    My thoughts run away and take me with them
    To places I wish were unknown;
    Emotions evoked send me spiraling once more
    The feelings of which leave me numb.

    Depression within is a constant battle
    It's heaviness weighs on my chest;
    I struggle to breathe or just utter a word
    Til the fight leaves me wanting to rest.

    Still I pick myself up from one day to the next
    Vow somehow I will make it right;
    Then self sabotage or draw into my shell
    Avoid connection day and night.

    I've come to accept that I'll never outrun
    Those demons which lead me astray;
    At least not until I can handle the truth
    I'm the obstacle in my own way.
    .
    Until then I'll struggle, mind set on unrest
    My heart left in want of the key;
    For the power to heal lies in but a gesture
    Let go and God will set you free.
