    Here I sit beside my window
    Here I look out into the world
    I see what a life some have
    And see what a life I could hold

    I don’t see happiness
    Flickering by the candlelight
    The fire is gone
    I am burnt who cares? I don’t fight

    Who cares if the fire is blown away?
    I’m left here in this hate
    In this misery I am
    I’m in silence in this state

    Its okay, I am Violet
    I am here to come
    I’m not sick I’m just crazy
    What you see here, it’s done

    I am Violet
    Oh powerful me
    Denying and forgetting
    Wanting to flee

    Wanting to run
    Wanting to hide
    That is me
    Who I am inside

    I am nothing but a runner
    A hider is all I am myself
    Don’t come seeking for me
    I’m not behind the shelf

    Don’t come seeking for me
    For all that is there
    Is nothing, invisibility?
    All there is; is air

    Violet I am
    I don’t need your fuel to survive
    I have my on tool
    I’m not even alive

    I’m not dead either
    No I am not
    I’m stuck between the barrier I am
    Leave me here to rot

    I will wither away
    I am strong without the sand
    The sand which keeps you shells growing
    Without it I’m able to stand

    Who needs power and work?
    Who needs me anyway?
    Here alone here where you are
    I do not wish to stay

    I am fading, so long farewell
    I’m fading until I disappear
    I don’t need to be in this box
    Full of sadness and fear

    So goodnight world
    Goodnight all
    I’m Violet
    I’m leaving standing tall

    I am not marking my place
    When I’m gone this is what will be left
    Do you need a photograph?
    Take it of where I rest

    Where I rest is will I will stay
    Forever with visions of you above
    Visions which are now gone but will always remain
    Not visions of love

    I am done with all of this
    I am full of all this sorrow
    So goodbye, goodbye
    We won’t meet tomorrow

    This is your photograph
    Take it, here’s my soul
    Here’s the piece
    The completion of the whole

    I have said goodbye too many times
    Here is my last
    Understand I cannot last much longer
    This is where I end my past

    Aww Hun. You express yourself so well. I wish I could express myself as you have. Thank you so much for sharing this magnificent piece of art with us. But, I hope you don't act on some of that. If you'd ever like to talk I am here for you anytime. Also, I hope you share some more of your poems with us. I also would like to welcome you to this forum. It's a great place with great people. I though would like to warn you to be safe before viewing crisis part, suicide part and all. If you are extremely down it can be triggering but all in all, I'm sure you'll be OK. Also there's a chat here to if you'd like to visit it. I am in there quite a bit now considering I am a Chat Monitor at the moment. So I am looking forward to getting to know you, Hun. :) :hug: :hug:
