Yeah, I was just fine until just now.
The words I hear keep bringin me down.
See, first I’m fine
and then they hit.
Then I can get rid of it.
They come back, once again
those stinkin’ words
and more word friends.
Beat my brain into a pulp,
show a reason to give up.
No matter who tries to save me,
I always go back down again.
Drowning, drowning in my own thoughts.
And I’m so sick of it.
Why
Can’t
It
Just


Stop?

I really like this. I wrote a poem similar to it today actually. Awesome job.

I feel the same way :( I like that many of your poems are short but they still say everything they need to

Nice poem, I xan relate to it. And yeah, I like to write too sometimes when I'm in high emotion :)

This is really good.  The emotion in it is just...wow.  It sounds so strong and just wow.  Haha, sorry, I don't know what else to say it's just that amazing I'm speechless!!!

No, I actually haven't read it all, but I already see that it's not all sad. It just hit me as I was reading a few of them that they seemed a little depressing.

And you're a really good writer!! Some of your stuff is so full of metaphor and imagery and it's really good! Keep writing!

Thanks, I think it's always a good idea to write while you're still feeling the emotion you write about, it works better and makes a better peice.

Okay, I agree that a lot of my writing is sad, maybe I am a depressed person. Don't take this as a repremand, but have you read all my work? I'm pretty sure not all of it is sad. Just most of it.

I hope you don't take this as an insult, because I just mean it as an observation, but you always seem sad in your writing. You are good though.

Fall in love or fall in hate; Get inspired or be depressed; Ace a test or flunk a class; Make babies or make art; Speak the truth or lie and cheat; Dance on tables or sit in the corner; Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Breathe. And enjoy the ride...

it sounds like your going crazy, but thats a good thing because it gets the point across about how terrible those words are. good job:)
