I write poems a lot, When i can actually sit down and do them i feel they really help to get your thoughts and feelings into an understandable form. Anyway, below are 3 of mine that i'd like to share.

I take this life with a bitter sweet pill
Pretend alls fine when you know it's not true
A smile on my face, a laugh on my lips
In my heart a fear i can't ditch

This is the ancient mariner
On-board that death prone ship
The albatross gone long ago
No water touch my lips

I am his coy mistress
I am the one he loves
No time to declare it
No time is enough

I am the scorpion in the shoe
I am the poison that makes you ill
I cause you pain, i cause you fear
All your cries fall on death ears

I am the sacrificial goat
To make your house built strong
This senseless death of circumstance
All done for an old wives tail

I take this life with a bitter sweet pill
Pretend alls fine when you know it's not true
A smile on my face, a laugh on my lips
In my heart a fear i can't ditch

________________________________________________________

If you could see the world through my eyes
Would you still think like you do?
‘Keep fighting’, ‘keep trying’; it never stops.
Will I see a world like you?

This is not reality; it is my world you see
On a different plane
My own personal dream
A tiresome battle of wills

The voices that come would see me dead
Their faces drive me insane
The one’s who are real, but still, are not
A never ending game

A constant hate for my being
A knowledge that no one seeks
A constant fear of rejection
Not just for the one who loves me

How can he still love me?
With the pain I put him through
The violence, self-harm and regression
‘no one could ever love you’

How can he still want to stay?
When I’ll always be this way?
When every day is a battle
Between me, myself and I?

How can I ever change this,
When I’m not allowed to speak?
When the taboo is your life
And the doctors refuse to treat?

When they say it’s just anxiety
And yet I know it’s more
When medication never works
And I can’t get through the door?

When the anxiety started long after
The voices came long before
The broken mind of a scared girl
And hope lost long ago

The fear is worse than anything
‘You can solve it with a jump’
I could solve it with a jump
The seeping into my thoughts

I’m tired of all the fighting
Tired of asking for help
Tired of hiding away
Tired of giving up

And yet they refuse to listen
While I’m teetering on the edge
They have their own theories
that’s right, in their heads

I’m scared of what will happen
I’m waiting for that day
The one where all this ends
I just wish I knew the way.


________________________________________________________

I never expected you to be there
To feel your movements just last week
No confirmation, but i knew
And, somehow, we'd care for you

Your brother and sister will be so happy
another little friend
We'd struggle, but we'd manage
please don't be the end

The pain came on sudden
and i knew what it was from before
you've left me just like the others
weap as i fall to the floor

physical pain doesn't matter
with that, i can cope
But losing you, seeing you go
i think i've lost all hope

it was twins first time round
and oh how my heart broke
2 little babies, heartbeats heard
doctors words made me choke

'it's too late to save them'
he gave me a pill
i wish i'd said no
give a chance to them

They we're my first, now you my eigth
Will it never end?
What do i do to lose you
stop it happening again

Another baby taken from me
with no answer as to why
My baby's gone, but i have to carry on
For my two bains in my life

I want to curl up and die
hide from a world so bitter
no one understands the pain it causes
they expect you to not care

How can i not care about it?
You were inside me
I felt the life and joy
I don't care what people think

Talking about contraception
while i'm losing my little one
maybe i could have prevented it
but you're also in the wrong

Please, my babies, don't blame me
Know i did what i can.
If i had a choice i'd save everyone
This isn't what i'd plan

I love you so much my babies
More than you will ever know
I never got to meet you
but i felt you in my soul

You will always be a part of me
I will never let you go
I'll mark this day forever
a day with sun and snow

Inside my heart it's raining
the pain is killing me
but on my face a mask
a smile for all to see

How can i mourn for a child
who was never really there
who never showed themselves
until it was too late?

One day we will meet again,
i know that for a fact
until that day, my baby,
you are always in my heart

I found putting thoughts and feelings during depression , into written form, helped me. I've put my poems on a website www.alianco.co.uk to raise awareness of depression. I also made a couple of YouTube videos. I hope it inspires you try out creative media to express yourself. It's a very cathartic process.

this is the first time i've ever posted anything... wanted to share something a wrote to express how i feel about my son

if i could reach inside your mind
stroke away all the bad times
help you get a clearer few
i would

but there's a sorrow in your past
but the morning it won't last
there's a brighter day for you
for sure

there's a path that is your own
put you don't have to feel alone
i will be there when you call me too

i'd light your way with rays of gold
keep you from your fears and cold
gaurd your spirit, warm your soul
i would

if i could reach inside your mind
stroke away all the bad times
help you get a clearer few....i would

A poem I wrote in better times.........

Sail away upon my river
Rest your trust upon my shore
Drape your hope over my branches
Dive to my ocean floor

I'll fill your garden with fresh vision
Meet you by the wishing tree
Climb your ivy prison
Set your wild flowers free

Calm the storms that rage inside you
Stop the lightening bolts that fall
Catch the moonlight to guide you
Climb beyond your garden wall

And if when your desert sands have settled
A crack divides our forest floor
And the rose that sheds its petals
Sheds them for me no more

I'll wash my rivers fresh with waters
Count the time in grains of sand
Bring the winter to my autumns
And return to the land

You are the dark to my light
You're the empty hours that wear away
You're the place where dark angels play
You're the ready made
That tears and grates
You're the sharpest blade
That sits and waits

I listen for the lifeless tune
I curl into a lifeless womb
I grow in corners, twist in green
My spirit calls as my day dream

I open up and bleed inside
I am the place where colours hide
I burn in blame
Extinguish me
I live in flames
And pray for sea

My stage is clear
My pages turned
Drink it down
The courts adjourned
You lay in wait
You stain the slate
You descend upon my fate

You are the dark to my light
You took away my shadows right
To exist and twist and wake up pure
Now I sleep outside your shadows door

'd like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done,

Couldn't get back to sleep this morning, been having a lot of trouble staying asleep lately. However, I did manage to see and then catch this amazing sunrise from my window!

That is awesome.
I saw the sunrise too this morning but didn't think to photograph it.
The colours were stunning.
How about entering this for a competition somewhere?

Dreaming your alive.

Where can I run and hide
From the dreams we can't escape
Longing fills me inside
But feeling fills me to late, again
Seeing you walking there, it's lies
Footsteps continuing till i wake,
to cry
And hide, until i can face the tide
For what it is and always was..

Waves of memories fills this sea of us
Washing up on shore i watch you die
In fear, in pain
Without the dignity you deserved
Even though i wasn't there to see
I watched you die in my sleep last night.

Again and again.

I hold back my grief, for you came back alive
Keeping in the feelings you gave me
Walking with you in my sleep
I cry and try to hide the tears in our eyes
Maybe it was tears that washed you away
From me and us.

Regretting.

I tried to make you see me for what i am,
to make up for not seeing you before
All that's left of you is dreams
Whispers of who you really was
We all reach for you,
again and again

I fall asleep forgetting you died,
to end up dreaming your alive.
