Favorite Quote:
Love is like playing the piano. First you play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and play from your heart.

It's icy,
It's cold,
It's iron,
It has a dark hold.

I shiver,
I fold,
I quake,
But I'm not cold.

There's pain,
There's hurt,
There's fear,
It's quite curt.

I cry,
I scream,
I fight,
I dream.

There's no air,
There's no thought,
There's no room,
I've been caught.

I toss,
I turn,
I kick,
And I burn.

There's fire,
There's peace,
There's nothing,
It's fierce.

It laughs,
It bites,
It snarls,
It fights.

It relaxes,
It contracts,
It squeezes,
It's all facts.

I escape,
I get ensnared,
I trip,
And I get scared.

Where it ends,
I do not know,
When it starts,
I simply yell, “NO!”

Not again,
Not this time!
I wish it wouldn’t come
Like this, on a dime.

“Go away!”
I yell, louder now.
Sometimes I feel
The sweat on my brow.


Where'd it come from?
Where does it hide?
Why does it show its face,
Only once in a while?

“Be gone!
Be free!
Be quiet!
I cannot see!”

My heart,
Is held captive.
My mind,
Is not active.

I'm confused,
I'm lost,
I'm dizzy,
I'm covered in frost.

It's dark,
It's bright.
There's shadows,
There's light.

What's happened?
Where've I gone?
Why is it here?
This is not where I belong!

Get me out,
And really fast!
I don't like this,
It's much, much too vast!

The author's comments:
I used to struggle with wanting to take my life. I thought it useless and pointless. My world wasn't going the way I wanted it to. The one thing that kept me alive and prevented me from ever attempting to take my life, was the fact that I had so many friends depending on me. But the feelings never really left, until I let them go. I struggled to enjoy life, so I put up a front. Now, I see that there's no point to that. I am an actual happy person.
