The Noose Tightens

Today has
been like
scratching
a brick wall

I didn’t
see this
one coming
at all

Everything
I’ve done
has made me
feel worse

I cannot
shrug this
nightmarish
curse

It feels
ridiculously
melodramatic
to say

But I
really don’t
think there’s
another way

All that
appeals
to me now
is that rope

As finally
it seems I’ve
abandoned
all hope

    1. Thank you, you’re very kind. I’ll be OK. Just having a couple of down days I think. I’m well used to them. Being able to write down how I’m feeling, as I don’t always talk about it in real life, certainly helps. ๐Ÿ–ค

    1. And the voyage from black to grey starts with a smile at your witty response, so thank you for that! ๐Ÿ‘ You’re very kind to think of me. I’ll be OK I think. Just having a couple of down days but they are nothing new. Being able to write down how I’m feeling, as I don’t always talk about it in real life, certainly helps. ๐Ÿ–ค

  1. This is a really vivid post here. The poem’s good ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™. I just hope you’re alright. Rope should never be an option, okay?

  2. Iโ€™m glad youโ€™re still here โค
    Reading through these comments and I agree, we have a very similar way of writing! My family hate the way I write, but it helps so much.

    1. Thanks. It takes a lot of effort to stay some days…

      That’s the joy of being anonymous, I guess. There are less than a handful of people who read my work ‘in real life’ so I’m free to fully express my thoughts / feelings here.

      I’m so glad because, as you say, writing helps so much! ๐Ÿ–ค

      1. I know… I can tell, and I’m not just saying this – that you’re one of the strong people. I truly felt every word of this poem.

        Anonymity is very freeing ๐Ÿ™‚

          1. And I should say, Bluebell, thank you so much for all of your likes and comments today.
            You taking the time to read my ramblings means a lot – let alone you giving such (undue) praise also.
            I shall take inspiration from your kindness and from your own wonderful works too!

  3. Such relatable words. Reading some above comments I’m glad you are OK. Thank goodness creative do have an outlet for their big emotions or there would be a lot more action I fear. Glad to have found your beautiful words. Stay strong as this too shall pass.

      Your words are very kind and mean a lot.

      I certainly am grateful to have found WP as an outlet but, more importantly, the wonderful community that exists here.

      Glad to have you at the blog ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค
