I was in chat and mentioned that I write poems to help myself cope. It was suggested that I post some on the forums. These are the two poems I've actually finished and, well, welcome to an abstract window into my messed up mind. Cut Up and Discarded by CCK This one is very autobiographical and straightforward. It was surprisingly easy to write, requiring no hard thought. Probably because it is so rooted in twisted emotions. Victim of my own desire Head confused, heart on fire Slowly all my passions wane Overridden by the brain. No more effort left to give; Losing all my will to live Can't escape what's in my head Feels like I've been left for dead Never felt so damn alone. No place where I feel at home Thus I turn another page; Turning sadness into rage. No Answer (Revised) by CCK This is not the original version I wrote, I reworked it to make it flow better so it's more "polished" and slightly less emotionally rough. It sounds best when read relatively quickly because of it's 6-5-6-5 structure and alternating rhyme scheme. It gets hard to keep sane When you're so depraved That all hope starts to wane That you can be saved My search for the answer's Like searching for air, I can't fucking see it It should be right there. The end is a blessing It's not such a curse; Why should I keep going When life's even worse? I don't understand why Self-harm's frowned upon Please just leave me to die; I'm already gone.
