How I am feeling

Just wrote this, as a way of distracting myself from even more harmful thoughts.

I have hit rock bottom,
Theres nowhere left to fall,
Trapped in this big pit,
Been feeling very small,

They try to think,
What it must be like,
To replicate this pain,
Strike your soul with a spike,

Wouldn’t wish it on anyone, to feel how I feel,
Lost, empty and lonely, would be just the start,
Said goodbye to my emotions,
Seem to have misplaced my heart,

Look at everyone having fun,
They make it look easy,
Cannot look at anymore happiness,
It makes me feel queasy,

Nine o’clock on a beautiful morning,
Time to face this new day,
By 12 in the evening,
The whole worlds still very, very grey,

Thoughts of death, ever in the mind,
What about my family, could I leave them all behind?


These thoughts are tireless,
They don’t ever stop,
Isnt it somebody elses turn now,
Please God let me swap.

Hi Muzzy999 and welcome to the forum.

I like your poem too. It's heartfelt and will resonate with many here. Poetry can be great tool to use when feeling emotional and I personally find it extremely helpful.

I hope that you are feeling more hopeful soon.

I'm glad you were able to distract yourself by writing a poem - I think that's really positive.
I can relate to your words and i'm sure many here can too. :hug1:

Hi. I just want to post this.

The energy that's inside me,
The energy that I feel,
The energy that's inside me,
The energy that is free,
The energy that's inside me,
The energy that I need.

The soul that's inside me,
The soul that I crave,
The soul that's inside me,
No longer an absent cave,
The soul that's inside me,
The one that I have made.

The truth is now inside me,
The truth of my energy
The truth that is inside me,
Is making me feel free,
The truth now inside me,
Has given me a soul,
The truth that's inside me,
Fills up every spare hole.


I'm in a much, much, much better place now, and I wanted to post this to give a bit of hope to anyone that needs it. Thanks, for the support shown on here, it really helped getting me through that night, and slowly my self talk changed.
