    Sharing my poetry, you're welcome to add your own.

    I like expressing myself through writing and drawing at times, unfortunately I can't share this type without attracting too much attention. I'm not the best writer, but it helps me unwind, I figured I'd share :) I decided for peace and took my own life Just for a fool that decided to revive...

    Suicidal haiku

    I wrote this a while back; haven't shared it at all for fear of getting locked up in the nut house. Figured this might be a good place to put it out there. It doesn't have a title because I suck at coming up with titles. ------------------------------------------------ Lost in my own mind...

    [Story] People like me...

    People like me commit suicide if not cultivated correctly. Everything comes with layers. Layers of sediment, layers of soil, layers of oak, layers of feelings, emotions, sadness. People like me feel layer upon layer of sadness. Almost so much that we cannot see the light. “I need some answers”...

    [Story] This is what depression feels like (to me)

    This is what depression feels like. It won’t leave me. I won’t ever be able to escape. It convinced me that death is better than living. It’s not melancholy but it sucks everything positive out of me and provides that empty space with dark goo that flows through my veins. Turning the flower...

    [Help] I am alone and no one understands...ready to go (plz respond)

    This looks like a safe space to share some of my poetry. I don’t know if any of you will relate but I really need some support as I am dealing with a new diagnosis of C-PTSD from a very abusive relationship I was able to get out of. Now I am just a shell and the closest I’ve been to suicide. A...

    Keep myself alive

    Keep myself alive, Don’t want to die just yet, Don’t fret nor regret, Let my past sins forgive myself and others, Listen to the cues of my virtues, Because we are all brothers and sisters of one another, Look to the light or remain in the dark, One cannot exist without the other, Coexist like...

    [Venting] When the fire burns away

    When the fire burns away, I will not let it stay, Don’t tell me it’s okay, Because this feeling hurts, Why oh, Oh why, This feeling in my head, I’ve made this my own bed, I shall cause dread, Forbidden, Within dreams, Where shall I go? When there is no one to show, How shall I feel within the...

    [Story] The next deja vu nightmare or dream or premonition

    The next deja vu nightmare or dream or premonition, Within my current volition, I don’t believe I see the future, Sure I can entertain that, Even be enlighten by that, Or try to educate myself on that, In my dreams or nightmares, Maybe within deja vu, Not to sound like a fool, But have you ever...

    [Venting] The nature of humanity

    The nature of humanity, Within all sanity, And everything, That we hold dear, We shall not fear, And even if so, How shall we go, This place is hell, We all fell, Into this well, Of misery, Despite the agony, Despite the family, And even friends, Or the pets, For I truly believe, That I am...

    [Venting] When the sky falls down

    When the skies fall down, I may hit the ground, But would it really matter, As our life shatters, Into pieces, Within multiple places, Like a broken window, For the life I have, It was not my own, How shall I grow, Within the broken, There are no more tokens, Within the grave, How shall I pay...

    [Venting] Therapy (poem)

    Therapy, More like treachery, All they care about is the money, Just like I do, Other than death, Of course, For which I may look, Towards the path, Which way should I go, Towards life or death, I do not know, When will I die? How shall I lie, Within this bed, That we all made for ourselves...

    [Venting] This new year

    This new year, Not within fear, May I find the peace, That I seek, Either to live, Or to die, What shall I do, For it is uncertain to me, I have enough money to pay, For this month’s rent, I worried about the other, Someone who brought me crack, For which I did relapsed, Not as an addict, But...

    [Venting] Boredom

    Boredom, Within this life, On cymbalta, I shall not lie, I hate to cry, I hate sensitivity, Within myself, I hate insecurities, I myself to blame, Within this game, We call life, But death is truly, What I seek, I barely have enough, To support myself, Live off the state, Within SSDI, For if...

    [Venting] Help the guy and his sister

    Help the guy and his sister, Welp the man and nothing against her, For I don’t know the whole story, Of their life, But I know, This falls on my own, For I am generous, It is dangerous, Not for you, But for me, This will end in misery, And despair, Out of desperation, This cry for help, For I...

    [Story] I’m too generous

    I’m too generous, For it is dangerous, I helped out, Someone else, Who needed money, For it is honey, The honey for money, For it is funny, This guy hooked me up, On crack-cocaine, On a hooker, And a homeless, To let her stay, if she needed, A haven for, A homeless woman, Who has a story, I...

    [Story] I made a choice

    I made a choice, Of mistakes, Of consequences, Within the past, Within the present, Within the future, Of uncertainty, Now I am here, Back to crack, Not alcohol, I shall leave the thrall, Of alcohol within the lightning, And the thunder, And now I wonder, Within asunder, How to proceed, Within...

    Leap of faith

    Leap of faith, With uncertainty, But it is okay, I shall stay, For within the presence, If this plays out well, There will be no hell, Within the bigger picture, I shall not leave, Unless I’m ready, Sorry for my hypocrisy, My irresponsibility, I hope this is a sign, Out of good intention, How I...

    [Venting] In the end

    In the end, I won’t pretend, The life I have, I should be grateful, Despite I’m miserable, Not lonely, Just empty, The pain I feel, In my head, It seems emotional, It is painful, But it is mental, Not physical, But genetic, I hate myself, Why do I live, When I want to die, Where am I going...

    [Venting] Suicidal thoughts

    Suicidal thoughts, They come and go, I reap what I sow, For my sins, They create me, But they destroy me, For I am broken, There are no tokens, For this emptiness, It is not loneliness, That bothers me, What is smothering me? For if God does exist, Please forgive me, For everything that I’ve...
