Reviews requested poem contains upsetting material

Abhorring life
Besot with
Calamity
Detesting my very
Existence

Fearful of
Giving up, yet
Hating the
Inner path of resistance

Juggling with thoughts of
Killing myself
Loathing my life;
Morbid thoughts

No one knows how
Old I feel
Pain is causing
Queasy knots

Running away from
Suicide
Tired of
Unrest and unease

Very sure I'll
Waste away
'Xing my life;
Yearning for a lifetime of
Zzz's



I am still me no matter what SIZEor shape I am!

That was well done, don't think I could have thought of a flowing A-Z poem. Nice work.





I put it down on paper and then the ghost does not ache so much.

I'm not usually one for poetry but I like this. It's clever with the A-Z thing (took me a few lines to realise!), it's simple (I don't like wordy poems) so is straight to the point but it's heartfelt.

Thx. Someone else gave me the idea of the A to Z thing and I've done about 4 since

I'd be interested in reading your other A-Z ones if you were up for sharing them.

Anorexia is a
Beast that
Compels me to use
Disordered behaviors
Exercising
Frantically, terrified of
Gaining weight
Horrified that
I've become a
Jumbo-sized monster.

Kitchen keeps calling
Looking for an answer
Maybe I'll eat?
Not likely
Obsessed with the
Past, unable to
Quit
Remembering the
Sorrow and constant
Torment.
-----
Understanding that
Very soon, I'll
Worried about something new
Xenophobic again
Yet yearning for
Zen like Peace of Mind, amongst friends.

Atrocities committed
Beyond belief
Carved into my skin
Dotted across the
Etchings of my
Feelings
Gone is any
Hope
Ideas of
Jesting are lost
Killing any chance of
Laughter.
Mistakes are made
Nothing seems right
Only disasters are
Present
Quitting life would bring
Relief
Suicide sweetly seems
Tempting
Unlesd I am
Vanquished from the
Wasteland of my
'Xistence
Yearning for a time to
Zone out forever.

Wow, they are good. Did you find it difficult to write within the 'rules' or was it easier than starting from scratch?
