Reviews Requested- Contains upsetting material - Not a lot of thought

Not a lot of thought
went into this
piece of
nothingness.

When I wrote it down
all I hoped was
you might
notice me.

I guess I just thought
I had to start
some where
at some point.

Unfortunately
I chose to pick
nowhere
here with you.

Not very deep. Off the cuff. But I am in a dark mood. So maybe it is. Want to write pieces and figured I have to start sometime. I will try to pull out some of my older pieces soon.

My painful computer chair

I spend hours online
Sitting in this chair
Not suited for me
At all.

My back completely out of line
My butt moulded and folded
Until I limp away
In pain

But I always sit on it everyday
Because I broke the other two
And think what a waste
this is

I would like to take this stupid chair
And throw it out some day
But then all I'd end up doing
Is standing

Online Love

He says he is just like me.
But I can't believe it could be this easy.
To meet someone.
Someone who is all the things that I have always wanted all my life.

How can I not screw this up.
First of all I am afraid.
Something must be wrong because it is not real.
It is online, where you can be anyone behind a computer screen
Oceans apart.

Maybe he deserves someone better than me.
I feel so empty. I mean I am not ready for any kind of
Online love.

But how can he be just like me.
He must have hacked into my heart
And stolen the password to my dreams and fears
And made everything okay.

How can I trust that I won't just end up
With some virus that will totally wipe out
This online love?

I like your style. And I also feel like I can relate. By all means, if it helps you, do keep writing.

I met my partner online, at a time where I was also addicted to using the internet and sat for hours even if it injured my back and hands. And it could be so scary at times, and sometimes I felt like I should have just given up because he could have done so much better. Now I find joy in taking walks in the sun instead, my hand in his.


Sometimes off the cuff is the most honest.

Laryngitis

I lost my voice last week.
Or if not my voice my muse.
Up in smoke she goes tomorrow.
And she won't be lining my cigarette paper.
Yet I can't breath.
Let alone talk
And hardly sing
And now can't sleep
Because all I think is
I lost my voice last week.

I'll remember you always
And hope you can hear
My silent screams now

THE RAGE

I never know what to expect.
I am usually sure I never mean
To be mean.

But today I was sure
That she took pleasure
In causing me pain.

In telling me it was none of my business
Mocking me with that timeless half smile
The same one that critiqued
Eggs too runny or me having half a french fry more.

So I quickly walked away.
Because I felt it building up
In my throat, from my gut
Screaming for attention.

I looked at my key in my hand
And thought what a great pen
It would make
Down the side of her truck

Prying ears wanted to know
Why did I look frustrated
But I kept my silent vigil
Swallowed my pain

Because it was the advice
Of others- following that
That led to the punishment
I am experiencing now.

Why does everyone
Try to keep peace with her
At my expense, because
No conversation is had

With someone who screams
My way or the highway
Never listens to the concerns
Of others and knows everything

I have nowhere to place this rage
That is now curled up in my stomach
Causing me pain and making me feel
More alone that ever.

Why can they just trigger me
Punish me and leave me
To suffer. I have no outlet
Except what I create from nothing.

Just say no

So today I told her
No I won't do it
You can't make me
So she called me..............

When you do unto others
It is meant to make you feel.............
But today I am like not now
That you treat me

So I'm alone in the darkness
Hopeless with no one to
Talk to or help find a way
Out of this- but me

So I'll just say NO!!

If.................

If my music were rainbows or bridges
To other worlds away from pain
I would practice everyday
Knowing that it would lead me to you

If my tears were oceans or rivers
That filled the emptiness in your life
I would weep at happy stories
To complete the hollow spaces in you

If my abscense was an answer
To questions that haunt you
I would walk off the world's end
So that you would know

I LOVE YOU!

Who built this wall?

Who is it that built this wall?
Yesterday he told me that I'd look fabulous in a short dress and stillettos.
That I am looking sexier and could catch any guy's eye.

But all I see..................is someone whose still not good enough.

What is it that built this wall?
My best friend speaks about finally understanding love and having enough
To share the world over. Bursting to talk to me about it philosophically.

And I think..........but you still aren't in love with me?

Who built this wall?
Me. Me! Me? To protect myself from those who look and don't touch.
Touch but don't love. Love but don't know.

Who built this wall?
Does it matter? Because the only one who believes it is there is me.

No body here.

I am invisible.
I am the Unseen.
I am wind.
I am a dream.

My ocean meets
Her front door.
And knocks but no one answers
She doesn't live here any more.

Time is my heartbeat.
A clock tired of running behind.
Hands reaching but never touching
Numbers out of line.

My hope is weakened.
My faith is gone.
My love forgotten.
I am no one.

Facebook this

So you want to know who I am?
Friend me on cyberspace.
Poke me so I can poke you back,
How fun this is.

Are we friends in real life?
Seen you around but you never speak
But yet you send me
Something on Cityville, Farmville...

Try to add me to your group.
Even write on my wall.
But isn't that graffiti in the real world?
Oh how fun this is?

Then one day I get tagged
Somewhere you think
I'm not meant to be
Next thing- you unfriend me.

No trial, no jury,
Immediately guilty.
A timeline of no ones business
But mine- priceless.

Untag, Unpoke
Delete, Block,
Hide, Ban, Spam,
Deactivate- WHY?

So you want to know who I am?
Meet me for a coffee sometime.
Otherwise, facebook this.
"Goodbye" online.

By George

By George, Gershwin's got it!
It's summer time all year round!
Can't you see the fish and cotton fields
As you enjoy your easy breezy life.

Daddy makes good money
Doesn't drink it all away.
And my mom is so attractive,
He comes home in time for dinner each night.

I know that I have to grow up
And some day I'll be on my own
But right now as I rest my head to sleep
All I hear, my lullaby- by George: is a Gershwin song...........

Late movies

So I screwed up.
Someone didn't get the memo.
And pass it on to me.
That I am no longer- wanted.

Today I came here to my safe space
And never felt more afraid.
Because people had become mean
And the darkness was cold.

I love his smile and the way
His text lights up my phone
So that I can see in the glow
Where to place my feet.

It was almost 2 hours long.
And in 3 D- this point of view
This movie, with songs
About people long gone.

Doctor who

It is for your health.
What? Meds
So like the good girl I am I do what the doctor said.

It is for your health.
What? To stop meds.
But they're too strong to stop- if you do then you'll be dead.

It is for your health.
What? That you need to tell me everything.
I'll only share it with the world; it won't ruin your life.....
Now that's absurd.

Now everyday, my family claims
I'm dangerous, crazy, cannot be trusted.
And every night I lie alone
Waiting to die; crying............crying............

It is for your health.
What? The tests.
To prove it is physical and not in your head.
To prove that you don't need meds at all.
Now that's absurd.

Because all those days, I made it on my own.
Plotted my journey; with the world against me.
And made it to this point of survival
I may not be a success- but I am alive.

So this is for my health.
What? To stay the hell away from doctors.
You refill my prescription but keep your opinion to yourself.
You've ruined my life enough- but I'm living and I'm grateful.
To think you understand me at all......
Now that's absurd.

My baby home.

I couldn't find them.
Why aren't your sisters here?
Call the police.
They've been taken.

Why do they treat me like this?
Why are they taking me here?
I want to go home.
Let me go home.

No I don't want to sleep.
Why won't they let me eat?
Now that I'm awake I see
They've taken you from me.

So only now they send me home.
But they don't give me a choice.
You'll think that I've left you.
But mommy has to get better.

Now, I've come to get you.
But they won't let me near.
They won't let me keep you.
How can they do this to us?!

Ripped wide- my baby home
My heart and mind defiled
I need you to make sense of my world
My bipolar life.

How can words in a file
You open 20 years from now.
Explain how I feel at this moment.
Without you in my arms.
