    *I was asked by my therapist, who knows I write because it helps with my depression, to write a poem based on the feeling of being 'revealed or exposed' to people. I'm a very private person and so I tried to portray how it would make me feel..*

    I screamed for my mother
    When they tore my body apart
    Lungs full, my ribcage burst
    They vomited my blackened heart

    They poked at it for hours
    They held it before their eyes
    Such deliberate end on the hospital bed
    I had never given the time

    They laughed at the loves it lost
    The one hundred attempts it tried
    To cease it's own beating
    Melancholic, chemical life

    When they tossed it in the trash
    With a thud I heard it land
    The weight of pitiful sadness
    Ruptured it's fleshy, tiny sack

    I could barely contemplate the next
    As the blade was held to my brow
    “Break open the diseased,” They cried
    “And expose the weakness now.”

    They chiselled my skull for awhile
    Learnt the truth, all I tried to hide
    Humiliated in the damning light
    I eventually lost my mind.

    That was nicely and cleverly "constructed." I hope we hear more from you. :)
