    I want to be free. TW!


    You stole my life but I want it back,
    You've tormented me ever since the attack,
    You looked in my eyes, didn't you see?
    A girl so scared, she just wanted to be free,
    Now I sit in front of therapists, doctors and nurses,
    I let them in and repeat the same verses,
    All so they can find out why I self destruct,
    From this life, I wish I was plucked,
    I try to let death take me away,
    You tell me you'll help which is nice but wont sway,
    From this life I wish to be free,
    I want to run away, just so you won't find me,
    Why am I so scared five years on?
    If I carry on like this it's obvious you have won,
    Well one day I will be free,
    And I know that has to start with me,
    You do not control me anymore,
    So it's time I show you the door,
    I want my life back and I want it back now,
    For me, my sanity and my future, for this I must vow,
    I vow never to hurt myself in that way again,
    I vow not to be so scared of men,
    What you stole I cannot get back,
    But I will not be ruled by the attack,
    I want life and I want to be free,
    So you can leave and just let me be.

    The care and compassion I witnessed/experienced on a psych ward is something i'll never forget. Patients are often stigmatized as being dangerous but that's just not true, they are some of the most genuine and caring people I have ever met. these are only a few of the things I have seen.

    Things I have seen.


    I have seen a man so anxious he was deemed to mad for society,
    he drew me the most amazing pictures, he had so much variety, 
    I have seen a girl so distressed she was seen as a danger
    I hugged her and she calmed down, even though she was a stranger,
    I have seen girls cry over their plates reaching out to each other,
    comforting them through another meal just like a mother,
    I have seen men twice my age, 
    take me under their wing, even when I was in a rage,
    I have seen a girl sing and play guitar,
    to numb her own pain, she shone bight like a star,
    I have seen a nurse break down in tears,
    for she couldn't take away the pain held for years,
    I have seen a man bring a patient a flower,
    for she hated herself so much she couldn't even shower,
    I have seen a doctor with all his power,
    tell me he used to self harm and was a wallflower
    the things I have seen inside these walls,
    the kind and compassionate words in the halls,
    I will never forget these most genuine friends,
    in a psychiatric hospital, where it ends.

    My poem is called The War Must Continue. In history we had to do a poem or tribute to the soldiers who lost their life in World War One. Possibly triggering.

    The guns are banging 
    The soldiers are crashing
    Crashing 
    Crashing into the mud
    There is no time for mourning
    No time to lose in the war
    The war must continue
    Bodies are left behind
    All that is found in the end is a skeleton
    A skeleton that cannot be named
    Everyone at home worrying
    Will they come home?
    Have they died?
    They never will come home
    They will be Decomposing in the mud
    Decomposing to bones and clothes
    To nothing
    Poppies grow in place
    To show that they gave their today
    For our tomorrow
    So may all the soldiers rest in peace
    Bless all the families who have lost someone
    A son
    A husband
    A brother
    A friend
    A cousin
    Anyone
    Thank you for your service

    Remember that they shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning. We will remember them. Lest we forget. ❤

    I'm a fruit loop. 🍊➰

    There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.

    Exhausted.

     

    I feel like an uncomfortable pair of jeans,

    I feel tight and moulded,

    Forced and controlled.

    I feel ignored and tired,

    While my impatience grows.

     

    I feel stressed and angry,

    Unable to breath,

    I feel worn out and ragged as I fall to my knees.



    (I'm generally happy just having a moment lol)

    A witness to a sisters beating


    I stood and watched.

    Right on that spot.

    With my feet stuck, I watched.

    As I stood.

    On that spot, I watched, And watched.

    My feet still stuck.

    Feeling so much

    And thinking about my feet, that were stuck.

    Right on that very spot.

    As I watched.

    My sister died before we could rebuild our relationship  

    I’m not ready.

    Not yet.

    But I was too late, In the end.

    Simply too late to even begin.

    Tired


    I don’t know what to tell you,

    I don’t even know where to begin.

    I just need you to know…

    That I’m trying to fight a darkness, that really wants to win.

     

    At first it was just a little sadness,

    Nothing too severe.

    But now it’s so much stronger,

    Attacking me with fears.

     

    I try to find my peace,

    I try to be alright.

     

    But sometimes it just holds me, oh so very tight.

    Constantly breaking
    Body shaking
    I'm not faking
    I'm not faking

    Always afraid
    to face my cage
    to face my rage
    to face my pain

    This is not for show
    My head is about to blow
    Everything is wrong
    This is not for show

    "There are pieces of us scattered across the world.
    In words, on skin, in hearts.
    Do we realize the significance?
    A letter, a touch, a heartbeat
    And if we gathered all these pieces together,
    Would we display it as our masterpiece?
    It mattered, more than we realized
    Let us not be careless about a single moment."

    I cannot hide
    Always on the side
    Tell me why I should fight
    When there is never light

    Why should I survive
    When I ruined my life
    Such a waste of space
    that shouldn't be replaced

    You would stop me leaving
    but you wouldn't stop me breathing
    You force me to fight
    When there is no light

    Who cares if I was broken?
    I was already hopeless.

    I shouldn't hurt the people whose intentions were to love me
    But why let them love the person I am not?
    I am not capable of love, love and me– we both crash and tumble like the sea
    We don't go together, we collide, fight and leave the other to rot.
    Love and me….we're enemies
    And accident or not, I know
    Hurting them wasn't right
    But it was the only way to show
    The monster that lay inside
    I gave them warnings, they don't listen, hate me for what I am, don't love me for what I'm not.

    This isnt real
    This isnt how
    I'm supposed to feel.
    Time won't heal
    It'll only seal
    Only conceal
    This isn't real.

    Always cautious
    Guarded like a promise
    Don't leave me hopeless
    Captivate my focus

    Come to think of it
    I'm not entirely sure
    where I lost myself

    Maybe it was in those 8 hours
    of classtime
    lost in notes and due dates
    equations and definitions

    In beds of strangers or
    old friends who I no longer
    know the whereabouts of

    Was it in love lost and forgotten?
    Perhaps words and friendly exchanges
    greetings and goodbyes

    Did I lose myself somewhere
    along the roads driven on
    late nights
    to places with people whose
    faces I won't ever recall?

    Did I leave myself behind in
    books or shows or at the cinema?
    In lonely coffee shops?
    Or crowded concert halls?

    Or maybe it was in the ticking of clocks
    and counting of time
    waiting for the better times
    that never came

    Come to think of it
    I'm not entirely sure I lost myself
    I'm not entirely sure I ever had myself

    Maybe all these places
    are where I've found myself
    Would anyone care, would anyone cry If I finally stepped off of this ledge tonight?

    Confession

    I'll confess
    I'm a walking, talking mess
    I'll admit
    I have nothing left

    I'll confess
    I have sinned
    And I obsess
    Over thoughts I think

    I'll confess
    I'm on the edge
    And I forget
    where I left my head

    I'll confess
    everything is wrong
    Slowly dying
    feeling like a no one.

    I think that if you let me,
    I'd treat you like the sky,
    I'd join up all your insecurities
    and bundle all your flaws.
    I'd create a new constellation
    and search for it endlessly.

    I know you don't see yourself,
    the way I see you.
    And you still argue,
    when I call you beautiful.
    But all the things you can't stand
    about yourself,
    are all the things I can't
    go a day without.

    I think that if you let me,
    I'd built a observatory,
    just to show you
    that all the stars
    will never shine as bright
    As you.

    Please stay
    I promise I'll change
    It doesnt have to be this way
    I apologize for my mistakes

    I know I deserve the hate
    I know I deserve the pain
    I deserve the chains
    I'm not worthy of a name

    Wish you were here

    I close my eyes
    And look for you
    I can feel you are here
    Can you feel my presence too?
    There are flowers everywhere
    But amidst their fragrance
    I can still smell your cologne
    That familiar zesty smell
    Maybe it's coming from your jacket
    That I'm wearing
    But you are here
    And You are smiling
    That damn smile I fell in love with
    You wipe my cheeks
    I didn't even noticed I was crying
    And then
    I put my hand on your chest
    But I can't feel your heartbeat
    I'll look at you With confusion
    You just tell me to open my eyes
    I do
    My hand-
    Is not on your chest
    It's on your headstone
    The flowers on your grave
    You're here but not with me
    you are here but buried deep.
    Would anyone care, would anyone cry If I finally stepped off of this ledge tonight?

    How am I supposed to fucking cope?
    Was I meant to fucking know?

    Dancing on the ledge
    its easy to forget Im on the edge

    Im kinda misunderstood
    Dont know what its like to be loved

    Do I look happy?
    Then I'm sorry I'm sad.
    Just because I'm laughing
    Doesn't mean that I'm glad

    Was I supposed to know?
    Was I supposed to cope?
    So unworthy of love
    I'm a certified lost cause

    I'm happy you found your way
    But I'll never be OK.

    I want a mum.
    I want a mum who’s always been there,
    Who knows more about me then I do,
    I want a mum who’s been to my plays,
    Who’s seen me on sports days
    And watched me become who I am today.

    I want a mum that won’t leave me,
    Who won’t walk away,
    I want a mum, that really loves me and is here to stay.

    My eyesight goes blurry,
    My legs to jelly,
    And my heart… extremely heavy.

    While my breath whispers to a stop
    And my mind floats far above
    Another night of darkness, clutches at my throat.

    Surrender

    Take me back
    to when I was ten.
    Because I'm scared
    What if I break down again?
    Take me to then
    All my energy is spent
    erase these dents
    Because I have nothing left

    But what if I break down again?
    What if I make the same mistakes?
    Can you replace the seconds chances I waste?

    I give up, I surrender
    Because I don't want to be like this forever
    I'll stand down, I'll chance this
    Because I never wanted to be like this
    I surrender...

    Take me back
    to when I was OK
    Struggling to focus
    Trying to be honest
    Take me tot the days
    No pain, no hate
    Always OK, always safe,
    before I started living in this pain.

    But what if I break down again?
    What if I end up on the edge again?
    Can you turn on the light when I drown in the choices I made?

    And I give up, I surrender
    Because I don't want to be like this forever
    I'll stand down, I'll chance this
    Because I never wanted to be like this
    I surrender...

    I don't want to be like this forever.

    I don't know

    Demonized
    Penalized
    Is this legalized?
    I don't know

    Criticized
    Pushed aside
    Wonder why
    I don't know

    Live a lie
    Look at the sky
    Look mortified
    Confused for sure

    Sorta surprised
    Patronized
    This is unadvised
    Makes no sense

    Demoralized
    Unauthorized
    Disorganized
    Who broke that fence?

    Your words are like knives
    I know I'm wasting my time
    Am I traumatized?
    I don't know

    I don't know
    I don't know
    This is not a show
    This is not a show
