A sufferer's night.

4 Jul 2015

I don't really know if this will help anyone, it's just a poem I wrote. Sometimes I find writing poetry to be very rewarding, even in the strangest of ways. It helps me rationalise my thoughts, and in some way bring me back to reality a bit. It's all too easy to get locked up in your own head, so maybe writing some dark poetry will lift you out. It did me once I'd read back what I'd written. It's a little incoherent, but hey... it's rhyming poetry :).

Thanks everyone, and many thanks to Moodscope.

A sufferer's night.

As time shifts and exposes rifts

As the hour's shower of minutes lifts

As the emotion, feeling and anxiety collapse

There is nothing but an empty, breaking expanse.

As the numbness sets in and quick

As paralysis breaks you in to it

As you become catatonic and your eyes roll back

Embrace the silence, lay back, relax

As the moments last forever and ever

As you experience the realm of an endless nether

As it engulfs you, your thoughts and your dreams

It's a marvel, a wonderful, place to be.


As reality shatters and the clock laughs back

As the seconds drift and ticks elapse

As you wake from this beauty, breathless and black

The world awaits you, plotting it's next attack

As the numbness fades and pain sets in

As tears well with the teeth gritting

As the emotion, feeling and anxiety return

There is one thing I want, this pain must burn

As my only escape, my leaving gift

As my last encore and bow to lift

As if I must die I indeed must live

Oh, please forgive me, I have nothing left to give...

All the very best to those who are out there feeling the brutality that is depression. It will fade, especially with the help of the Moodscope team.
