Plague Upon You


I am a plague,
Infecting all those I touch
I am a big lug
Immense and in the way.
I am his annoyance
The girl in his nightmares
The girl in everyone’s nightmares
Why am I alive?
Why can’t I die?
I’ve tried, but I cant
Vanish in to thin air.
I am the monster
That just won’t die.

I really liked the begining, but starting with "Why am I alive?" I totally lost interest since it loses its originality after that line. The first half is really good though, nice work.

This is a great description of depression hitting home. I like it. writing is a great theraputic way to over come these strongholds, and after awhile when you read them again they turn out to be great peices. please read my writings that I have posted i think you would enjoy them.

Wonderful. I can feel the beauty of your emotions, understand your state. Just know you're more than that. You're a poet, speaking out her emotions.
