Unhappy thoughts kill - April 16th 2009, 02:05 AM


my thoughts
a poem for you

living in the past
of who i used to be
fogging my clear eyes
it's impossible to see
a future in a past
leaves a present to come last
i'm not who i use to be
that girl has left me
and yet i'm still trying
to live like i use to
but i can't do that
unless i'm with you
i know that's not a choice
i have to make
but talking to you
is a chance
i had to take
for to live in the present
i must come to terms with my past
but until that time
i'll be living fast
speeding by
so i can't see
what is right in front of me
a scar on my hand
a tear drowns my face
the love in my heart?
i let it leave not a trace
it's terrifying to be living
when you're not really alive
jumping off a roof
taking a dive
the life i risk
is not mine
a bloodstream line
trickling fine
i see the girl
as i'm sitting here
her gaunt, pale face
is lifeless i fear
a stream of blood
slithers down her skin
ripped from her eyes
carved with a pin
her hair a tornado
ripped and torn
her eyes blank
from a promise of scorn
she is the girl who's life i'm living
the judgments carved
into her skin unforgiving
her heart once open
is slammed in the door
black and blue
all the way through
i see her kneeling
upon the tile
i kick her down
until she's slumped in a pile
a pool of her own blood
i drag her through the mud
she is dead to me
she is lilly.

help me.

Hey Lilly,

that's a really powerful poem. You're a really strong writer.

So, what's going on that's got you feeling this way? And I know that things can be really, really hard, but please remember that hurting yourself will not really help. There are other ways to ask for help - and I'm glad that you found TH and are using your voice

We're always here for you.

wow, this is really deep. that is a skill to be proud of.

if you ever feel the need to SH you can always write about it. it is always a good idea to express yourself in some kind of medium. you write, really well. if you feel like that just grab a pen and some paper and write about it.

You're a brilliant writer Lilly, be proud of yourself and always remember that you have this talent and the ability to tell people who you are and how you feel in this way.

If there's anything you need or want to talk about we're all here to listen to you and help you, and my PM box is always open should you need it.

Stay strong Lilly.

You are the one, the one who lies next to me,
Whispers "hello, I missed you quite terribly"

That's a great poem Lily, but i'm going to move it to Self-expression as I think you'll get more responses there

Wow Lily. Thats amazing!
Expressing yourself through writing is a really good way of letting everything out your system.
I'm sorry you feel that way though.
If you need a hand, I've got two, come PM me anytime yeh?
Take Care.

Oh wow.
That made me cry.
That is completely how I feel.
You're not alone.
I'm here whenever you feel like talking.
PS You're an amazing writer.

Keep Smiling.
Remember, you are not alone.
Don't try to wake me up even if the sun does come out tomorrow.
Don't believe anything I say, anymore.
