Favorite Quote:
"Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding." - Mahatma Ghandi


As I sit here in the dark,
I let my mind wonder,
Milling through these teeming thoughts
That send me so far under.

My eyes go blank and misty,
My mouth forms in a frown.
These haunting thoughts surround me,
Pulling, pushing as in them I drown.

Gasping, choking, I reach,
Searching for a breath of air.
Something, anything to save me,
From this awful nightmare.

Deprived of all thoughts happy,
I let myself sink further,
I’ll never be myself again,
All thanks to her.

She used to be my friend,
But now I’m not so sure.
I’m not so sure of anything…
Not anymore.


The author's comments:
I went through a tough time with a friend when I was a little younger, and it inspired me to write this poem. But I'm okay now, so I hope that any readers will recognize that no matter how bad it seems at the time, everything turns out okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end! :)
