Maybe the next time

As I awoke in my pit of despair

Laid out on the floor as a carcas left to rot

The flies were probably seeking their next meal

I was probably an eternity after the expiration date

Clutching my head as if it mattered

The afternoon sun pulsing through the dreary nets

The burning rays on my brow

Self pity was on my lips from the night before

Somewhere between the cheapest vodka and the stains on my shirt

A stream of bottles littered the floor

If only it was a river with a breakneck current

I wish it would suck me in never to return to my hell

Why is there always a next time?

An afternoon awakening sunrise

Maybe the next time I lose myself in the bottle

I can disappear for good

Sometimes we need to cry

Sometimes we need to cry

To release the pain away

To empty all the stress and strain

Not to keep it all at bay

We are not weaker for letting go

We are stronger in ourselves

Embrace and stop fighting it

Think of your mental health

I’m eager to have you back

I realised life is difficult

Without you around

I can’t even concentrate

My mind is up and down

Pulling myself out of bed

Think to have a wash

My brain is not working yet

It is just a mush

I’m making silly errors

Its affecting my job

Just to get to the end of the day

That requires a lot

I need to have our routine

To keep my mind on track

I can’t wait to see you again

I’m eager to have you back

depression · Life

Just because I don’t talk about it

Just because I don’t talk about it

Doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt

Hidden in the depths of me

Always getting worse

It is I who chooses to fight this way

Against my demons inside

If I choose to lock them away

Then my rules, they will abide

Even though they claw at me

To open to them the door

It is me that will keep them captive

Not them, not anymore.

Saying goodbye without a kiss

Your words to me I will never forget

They left a scar, an instant regret

A tsunami of tears left my eyes

Couldn’t understand why you despise

What did I do to deserve this pain?

Why did our relation have to strain?

The biggest hurt in all of this

Saying goodbye without a kiss

They’ve had it

They’ve had it

Them there

Stop looking

Don’t stare

Don’t touch

Not them

Look at them

No friends

All alone

Looking ill

Coughing now

Needs some pills

Walk on by

Turn blind eye

There they lie

They just died………

I leave the home to walk a bit

I leave the home to walk a bit

To digest the day and breathe

All the heavyness that I feel

I need to be upheaved

A moment with the nature

For an hour or two

Until it gets dark

Or I haven’t got a clue

I need to empty myself

To push it all out

Release the negativity

The nuclear fallout

Oh that feels so much better

My time all alone

Think it’s time to go back now

To my family, my home

Childhood · depression · Life · New work

Can you hear me?

Can you hear me?

Little old me

On the chair praying

To and fro swaying

My voice so small

Do you hear at all?

My words I utter

Through my stutter

I just want to be heard

Just a few little words

But no matter what

I am forgot
