Childhood · depression · New work

That’s a big mistake

That boy at school

Life already so hard

He teases me

Every day a new start

.

I never asked for this

To have him in my class

He always bullies me

Such an ass

.

He laughs with his friends

Just because he can

I don’t have any

No one understands

.

I work by myself

Always apart

I wear it on my sleeve

My fragile heart

.

Why do they have to be mean?

What did I ever do?

Am I so different from them?

Why do they exclude?

.

Days and days

This torment goes on

Nothing changes

The same repeating song

.

I can’t tell anyone

My mum doesn’t even care

I’m getting sick of it

I’m really scared

.

Being threatened now

Thumped in the chest

Shirt ripped down the side

I just want to rest

.

I am so fed up now

So I will bring an arm

I will wait for him

This time I will inflict harm

.

The last day of school

Before summer break

He decides to attack me

That’s a big mistake

Childhood · depression · New work

Be strong

Remembering when

We used to be small

When we used to laugh

A joy to be born

.

When parents could be nice

We weren’t beaten and bruised

Just relying on innocence

Not knowing the word abused

.

But a few of us unlucky

To be where we were

Silence and quivering

Not daring to stir

.

Not to get up early

Or to make a noise

Mustn’t disturb them

Cannot have a voice

.

The beatings taken

Black and blue

Bones cracked

Shattered through

.

Shy children

Not daring to talk

Too scared at school

It showed in the walk

.

Where would we go?

If we could ever run

What would happen to us?

If we returned home

.

We can always talk

Escape can be made

Talk to someone, anyone

You can get away

.

You can always talk to someone. The scariest part is leaving. There are always people that can help.

Be strong

New work

If you only had a day

If you only had a day

To live on this earth

I would cherish every moment

For all it is worth

24 hours

That’s all the time left

It’s counting down so fast

Ordered behest

I can’t waste a minute

What do you want to do?

I will do anything

My true love for you

Should we make love?

Hold each other tight?

Never let go?

Glued with all our might

Why should I have to let go?

My selfishness powers through

I can not give up

My love forever true

Now the tears are coming

A breathing waterfall

I cannot stop myself

Cannot stop at all

Why has it got to be like this?

I am so distraught

It could of been so different

If only you had fought

Don’t you love me?

How could you give up?

Is our love not good enough?

Was it just too much?

Now it eats your body

Nothing but a shell

Watching you in agony

Your pain cannot be quelled

I’m sorry that’s unfair

What have I become?

But when I will lose you

My life will come undone

Please don’t go

Beep… beep… beep………………

Goodbye my darling

You can go to sleep

Let me out

So you want to get into my head?

Are you sure doctor? my head’s a mess

I can’t understand it, the emptiness I feel

Nothing will quell it, not even the pills

I quite like the darkness, its comforting way

I’ve got used to it, keeping demons at bay

Though I don’t talk aloud, only to myself

Otherwise you would worry, for my mental health

I’m ok doc, I assure you, it’s true!

I worry about me, you worry about you

My days will dwindle on, just trickling by

Pitter patter rain drops, falling from the sky

Do you hear them doc? drip drip drop

I love listening, like a ticking clock

It’s funny how these sounds, we grow to love

Cherishing pattern, can never have enough

Well I guess that’s the end, can I go now?

I do hope to see you again, I hope somehow

You are such a great listener, how you listen good

All the shrinks before you never even could

You know I’m not dangerous, not really doc

The last time surprised me, a real real shock

When can I get out of here? let me free please

What, do I have to beg? Down on my knees

I promise I’ll be good, I swear on my life

If you don’t let me out, I’ll cut you with a knife

Wait and see

Do you remember the last time you had to wait

How it felt, that unbearable state

Knowing that something was gonna come to you

But you have to wait, gotta go through

Maybe it was exciting, knowing the outcome

At the end, maybe it will be so much fun

Or is it a reward, for all your hard work

You should know, it has left you distraught

Maybe you have done something, waiting to fail

Maybe you are wishing that you could set sail

Remember the first time, when you bought a car?

That new car smell, feeling like a rock star

What else can we wait for? What can it be?

Well I am sorry, you’ll all have to wait and see

Beautiful moon

Why would you watch me?

I know you better than most

Although everyone gazes at you

I will not be thrown.

We have had many a moment

Just you and I

Your beauty overwealms me

Brings tears to my eyes.

You can be blinding

As you light the path ahead

There is nowhere else to be

Nowhere else instead.

As the stars vie for your attention

Flashing bright and true

You stare right through them

As constantly you do.

Will you love me forever?

If I never look away?

Tell me you’ll never leave me

And you’ll always stay.

Fidoodle

I have a fidoodle

Whatever that is

Is it a poodle

Or is it a fish

Midnight laughed so

From this doodle bug

Can’t stop herself

Can’t get enough

What do you say

To the god of fidoodle

Do you wanna fight

Or a spicy pot noodle

Can you pick it

Like you pick your nose

It’s a fidoodle

No one knows

Sunday night

I hate Sunday night

Work the next day

Kids off to school

No time to play

Is it for them

Is it for me

I love to have fun

It makes me happy

Now a boring job

In front of a screen

Tapping on the keys

Just a has been

Get better soon

Hope you stop being sick

Shouldn’t happen to you

Our little ones

Isn’t it funny

How we watch over

Our sweet little ones

To be sure they are ok

Wrapped around their fingers

We’d do anything

As they suffer

We can only wait

And watch

When there are spiders

And flies

Keeping them from sleep

We are there

Is it because they need us

Or we need to be needed
