This Feeling Is New
Author: The Lost Girl


Death has never seemed so near,
and these words I say bring so much fear.
I'm hurting, I'm bleeding, unlike before,
I'm crying, I'm weeping, please no more.
Where did this come from? This feeling of hate,
of my life, my friends, the truth of my fate.
This emotion is painful, it's unlikely to heal,
and the faces around me just seem to scream "Kill".
I thought I had found peace, a serene place to stay,
that my life was in balance, and I would love every day,
but now it's all different, it's all hazy, confused,
Where's my happy days? I guess the good life was what I abused.
The word "Depressed" now seems so light,
it doesn't halfway express this amazing fight.
The knife now doesn't even seem appealing to me.
No, I can't escape in a crimson red sea.
I'm lost, so lost, I don't know what to do.
this feeling to me, is completely so new.
My solution when I became "depressed" was so easy,
I just took out a blade and my life was just peachy,
but this solution is harder to figure out.
Do I cut? Smoke? Scream or shout?.....
I'm hurting, I'm bleeding, unlike before,
I'm crying, I'm weeping, please no more....

I hear you

Great writing thank you for sharing this with us.
Depression, my friend, is like a wave that washes over you, then goes out with the tide. Just when you think its safe to swim, it comes back. It helps to talk to someone, someone who really listens.

You've put into words how I've felt lately. "Death has never seemed so near.." A lot of my more recent poems have been based on 'Time', or more to the point, the lack of time. I think I may know how you were feeling at the time you wrote this. Try to snap out of it, before it's too late..
