The Empath

We sat in silence until he took a deep breath and said, “You care so much about others and not enough about yourself.”  I stared at the ground while biting my lip.  I nodded. “Why?” he asked with a confused look on his face.  I answered, “Because I know what it feels like to not have anyone there.”

Angelic Mess

She was an intoxicating, mesmerizing mess.  He knew she was mad but he could not let her go.  She was the most angelic being he had ever seen.

Defense Mechanism

She pushed people away so that she could never be hurt.  In the process, she broke her own heart.


Today we met again after not so long ago
I often wonder how many others you visit
For you do not care about a person’s
Social Status
Political Party
No you do not care at all
You have no remorse
You keep affecting us all
You bring stigma with you
And if that is not enough
You take lives
You have gone after mine many times
You tell lies to people in hopes they will succumb to you
I know the dirty work you do
However, I have made it my life’s mission
To reach all who suffer due to you
I will save them before you get to them
That is my promise depression


You clever wolf; I was your sheep


He said with a melancholy demeanor, “I ignore her texts because I lost her once and I don’t think I could ever do it again.”


A diagnosis leads to a prognosis
I take my pill – you know the drill
Writer’s block hits me and seems to have defeat me
Traded my creativity for stability

Liquid Courage

He drinks the liquid courage while staring at his phone.  He wonders if he should tell her what’s been on his mind.  He drinks to forget but the whiskey never lies.


I lit up his world like a firework display
When it ended, he left
And I was all alone in the dark contemplating
Why I wasn’t enough to make him stay


Start looking at forever in your own reflection.  If you can not learn to love what is looking right back at you, then how do you expect someone else to?
