She took the pills…
To help her sleep…

Changing her dreams…
From nightmares to sweet…

To silence the voices…
Inside her head…

Constantly reminding…
She’s better off dead…

And to halt the visions…
Behind her eyes…

The monsters and devils…
And demons who fly…

Twisting and tormenting…
Around her fragile mind…

Always so bitter…
And so very unkind…

Until she got to the point…
There was no return…

Just too much pain…
Too many bridges burnt…

That left her standing…
In this world, all alone…

Nobody to help her…
No Samaritan to phone…

There was no white knight…
To halt her distress…

Living in solitude…
A life of inner stress…

That left her fighting…
To get through each day…

Then facing her tormentors…
As they came out to play…

But then she decided…
Enough was enough…

She could no longer face it…
Decided to give up…

So she took the pills…
To silence the screams…

And in her eternal sleep…
There will be no more dreams…

Poet Who Heals the Souls

You’ve done it again
Do you know what you do
Painting with palette of words
Capturing my shades of blue

You tell it like it is what it is
Do you realise your steadying influence
Toying with magical ribbons of prose
Tying me in knots of conscience

You write with such bravery
Do you often feel the fear
Exposing bare wounds
Making me lose my own veneer

You twist the stories darker
Do you relish the extreme ending
Needing to spit and spite in Hell
Hitting me with the heat you’re expending

You make sense of the senseless
Do you see how you give clarity
Focussing the looking glass
Supporting my turmoil with parity

You hit hard where it hurts
Do you have notion of your crime
Having talent that is inspiring
Breaking my heart time after time

You know where it’s going
Do you hope to engage finality
Forcing words deeper inside
Opening my eyes to reality

You feel what you’re doing
Do you reach out to touch
Unravelling your readers’ souls
Knowing my turmoil helps so much

You show honesty through rhythms
Do you hear the heart beats
Flowing your streams of conscious
Writing my life so history never repeats

You take followers on journeys
Do you lead them knowingly
Waking the healing power of your lines
Giving me perspective guiding gently

You capture moments so exquisite
Do you see the genius you hold
Providing a haul of scenarios
Seizing my mind’s eyeful that is untold

You are prolific in delivery
Do you churn out all you have inside
Fighting to keep inner demons happy
Championing my efforts to battle the tide

You have space to share your ability
Do so with humour, quirks and darkness
Gifting your catalogue for the world to see
Inspiring me to need you more I confess

You will be humbled by this
Do you take it I wonder tonight
Hoping you absorb admiration and love
Allowing my poem about you to take flight
