Bright lights

Bright lights,
Blinding my eyesight,
Creating havoc,
In my mindset,
Disturbing my peace,
Causing a migraine,
There is no escape,
No five minute breaks,
There is no where to run,
Im vulnerable,
Drying out in the sun.

Taunting Me

You don’t make it easy to forget,
You never have,
Put yourself in my shoes for once,
And allow me to take the lead,
Of my own life,
Without your haunting words,
Taunting me.

A friendship with fear

The huge wide world,
Can be scary,
Dangerous even.

You must not fear it,
Embrace it.
Welcome it.

With fear comes,
Power, and
Knowledge.

Not everything frightening,
Is to be,
Feared.

Lonely Reflexes

I kick and I punch,
Pushing you,
Further and further,
Away.
Beyond repair.

I walk away,
Over and over,
Again.
Always looking back.

Punishing myself,
Daily,
It’s heartbreaking.
You always return.

You always come back,
Always there,
Whenever I need you.
Forever mine.

You Still Can

No-one said it would be easy,
Please don’t hide away completely,
Let your voice be heard,
Teach those that need to learn.

If you allow yourself to run,
You will be forgotten,
Amongst those that ran.

They never found their strength,
But you still can.

Somedays

Somedays are profoundly worse than others,
Somedays your bed is your home,
A dangerous sanctuary,
One you do not wish to escape from.

Other days, you want to get dressed,
Get up and explore the world,
Putting your face on,
Ready to front life head on.

Remembering that although it isn’t easy,
You have to try.

When the earth that surrounds you crumbles
You need to hurry to the ground
Gather the crumbling dirt
Between your fingers
Pressing the newly formed dust
Back together
As if it meant everything
Stand up
And hold yourself together.

She was beautiful,
But untouchable,
Like the sun,
You couldn’t stare for too long,
You couldn’t even get too close,
She was too broken.

Depression has the power
to get the best of you
To take over
To rule your life
You can not find the way out
You keep searching
Giving up hope
Bit by bit
A never ending circle

When will it end?

She closed her eyes and breathed,
Its time you go,
Confusion clear in his eyes,
Sadness in hers,
But he knew if he stayed,
He would destroy her.

Is it too much?
Is it too much to want to feel?
Feel love
Feel protected
Feel save
Is it too much to want you?
Your smiles
Your cries
Your everything
Is it too much to ask for happiness?
For cosy nights in
For lustrous nights out
Is it too much?

Occasionally, in this universe
We collide into each other,
Crashing from person to person,
Creating an universe of relationships,
Friends and enemies.

I pinch myself to remind myself

You are real
You aren’t just a figure of my imagination
I am worthy of your love

Trapped within a delusional world

Your stomach in knots
The lump in your throat
The tears in your eyes
The pounding in your chest
The pain in your head

That One Glare

His glare,
Soft yet intent,
Full of awe,
Completely starstruck,
Warmth radiating from within,
Emanating rapidly,
Causing my heart to pound,
Butterflies spawn within the pit of my stomach,
My body frozen in time,
Unable to escape his stare,
The truth...
I never want to escape,
Willingly captive,
He makes me feel,
Alive.

The unknown

The world around me,
Collapsing.
My future is unknown.
The fear is overwhelming.
Once upon a time,
Everything was so certain,
Until now.
Time is running out,
Quickly.
I try to stay strong.
I try to be supportive.
I pretend.
In reality I’m completely falling,
Falling apart.

Never Good Enough?
A sickening feeling that rushes straight to your stomach,
Your scrambled mind swashing around like mush,
The blank stare, unable to bring yourself to smile,
Your emotionless to the public eye,
On the inside you are tearing yourself apart,
On the verge of a breakdown every time your left alone,
They all know,
You tell yourself they cant see,
They do see,
They're just too scared to say anything,
What if the say the wrong thing,
What if they push you over the edge,
They keep quiet,
Maybe that is for the best,
The thought of talking makes your throat swell,
Yours hands go clammy,
Your heart-rate quickens,
Completely unable to catch your breath,
Is this how yo...

No escape

You open your eyes,
The world around you is terrifying,
The image you’ve created in your mind is worse,
Immense fear riddles through you,
Like a bad itch you simply cannot reach,
You hide your panicked state,
You see they’re not scared,
So why are you?

Your mind is holding you prisoner,
With no set release date,
Your told you’re alone,
Your told no one will understand,
You believe this irrational fear is very real,
There is no escaping that,
Daily life becomes decapitating,
The natural things to fear slightly become petrifying,
Your mind did this to yourself,
How do you escape from yourself?

Lost and Alone

There she stood,
Cold blooded,
Pale faced,
Blue lips,
Head clouded,
But shes okay,
She tells everyone shes okay,
She holds her breath every time she enters a room,
Edging up against the walls,
Disoriented,
Overwhelmed,
The ceiling collapses,
Her heart sinks,
She can hear her own heartbeat above the crowds,
She holds her breath,
Praying for the anxiety to end,
She closes her eyes,
Imagining her safe place,
Away from this nightmare,
Alone but safe.

I heard you voice,
Butterflies evolved in my stomach,
Fluttering round with rope,
Tying knots,
My heart beat quickened shattering my rib cage,
A bright smile on my face,
like a child on Christmas morning,
This was love,
This is still love.

Overwhelmed
I was recently asked about my pregnancy and the birth of my little boy and it truly got me thinking.

Whilst carrying my unborn child i was overwhelmed scared and mostly excited. I admit i was petrified, what if i wasn't good enough? What if i let him down? What if i dont love him enough? Now i look back and all these questions within were extreme. The second he was born i laughed and hysterically cried, i could finally see what me and my lover created, i could cuddle what had been kicking me in the ribs for months. Happy was an understatement i felt complete. I had a whole new purpose to life, a reason to fight, a reason to wake up. And he looked at me, straight in to my eyes, h...

Moment of truth

Today i woke up,
Finally not feeling like a failure,
Not defined by mental health,
I woke up proud,
Excited,
Motivated,
I have changed my life,
Turned it around,
For the best,
I am a mother,
I am getting my degree,
I am writing my book,
I am carrying huge happy secrets,
And i am proud,
Even though i dropped out of school,
Failed most of my GCSE's,
I have come out on top,
Proving to myself,
I can be better,
I want to be better,
I can do this!

Migraine
The pulsating ache,
Bashing against my skull,
Light intensifies,
Eyes slam shut,
My face grimaces,
The pain takes over,
I hide,
Covered in quilts,
Pillows become one with my ears,
Sleep is my only rescue,
My sanity,
When i awake this will all be over.

Imagine

A small selection of the human race are yet to give up,
They still believe the world is a wonderful place,
The rest of the population see only negatively,
Dismissing any idea that there is still good in this world of ours,
The few who do believe see the world for how magnificent it really could be,
Imagine how amazing the world could be if everyone had hope,
How beautiful society would be if we all believed there was no hate within us,
Just imagine.
