“I’m going crazy, a little everyday”…

Feel these words,
this is fucking insane…

So much to lose,
but too little to gain…

Only stolen moments,
that boost for a while…

And drunken hazes,
making you smile…

But are simply masking,
the darkness within…

And never uncovering,
just what is missing…

Something deep down,
that keeps you walking…

On the dangerous side,
hearing only Devils talking…

Watching demons play,
hidden out of the light…

In their never ending quest,
in their never ending fight…

To find some freedom and
feel at peace…

It’s what you once had,
but the beast now feasts…

He’s turning your head,
busy sowing the seeds…

And self-destruction,
is where this will lead…

Where a fleeting moment,
is all it will take…

For this to unravel and
reveal the mistakes…

And at that point,
all hope will be lost…

As all you have built,
will bear the full cost…

So feel these words,
this is no longer a game…

There’s so much to lose and
there will be so much pain…

  1. I didn’t find it frightening at all, but raw and genuine. What is a bit frightening is that I related to it a bit more than I’m happy admitting to. That was a great poem – excellently written, with enormous passion.

  2. Incredible– it seems more recently that a day doesn’t pass that I either read a blog or hear from the news or encounter an incident regarding depression. Nice post. Peace.

  3. You, my friend, are a true artist. The pairing of that song with your poem was genius and made them both equally more compelling with new meanings to each individual. Knowing addiction and demons of many names your words were haunting, to the gut and bittersweet. I am honored you would like one of my posts, but grateful I have found such a place to come to enjoy.

  4. This really got to me, especially at the “stolen moments” part, that I literally kept re-reading. I will spend some time around, of that I’m sure. And thank you for liking one of my posts 🙂

  6. This poem is so though provoking to me. I struggle with Bi-Polar disorder and it makes you think. The darkness within got to me. There is a darkness that I fight every day with my illness. Thank you for the beautiful poem.
