    I would rather die than expose what goes on inside of my mind
    A maze of secrets you will never be able to find
    I'll take it with me to the grave, it can be buried for good
    To die off with me just like I know it should
    These melancholy words flow through my fingertips
    The neverending teardrops begin to drip
    I don't even know why I am still here
    No one even wants me near
    People only want me for the physical and material
    They don't want to get to know the me inside, the spirit ethereal
    You get your kicks, you use me up and you move on
    I can put a stop to it and just be gone
    It doesn't really matter, because no one will recall
    No one will remember that I was even here at all.

    Very emotional and evocative poem.

    "I don't even know why I am still here
    No one even wants me near"

    You are still here and that is all that matters.

    Thanks :) I just feel like a bother and burden most of the time. I wish I could stop feeling that way, but it's been part of me for a long time.

    No worries. In the group I attend, last week we were asked to list some emotions we all felt to do with our various mental health issues. The one that popped up on every list? Burden!

    Just thought you might like to know that piece of useless information.

    It's not useless, and it seems like lots of people feel this way. I just want to get rid of that feeling.

    How do we get rid of that feeling, thats the $64k question and one I have no answer to. Even the OT at the group had no answer to that one. A conundrum for sure.

    The burden is one of guilt and condemnation.

    Aww thank you :) There really are some great people here, and I am glad that I can always be myself without judgement. The members here share in my joy, help me through my sorrow, and let me know when I am being a pain in the ass...lol. It is a great place to be.
