"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works." Virginia Wolf


What are they talking about?

Is it me?

I'm feeling out of place,

Kind of lonely,

Must I fight this battle alone?

Help me get through this,

Before I fade away.

Vison is blurry,

Can't see the truth.

I'm ill so ill,

Can't you see the real me?

This isn't me,

Before this I was happy.

Now I'm burning to ash,

My life at stake my mental break.


The author's comments:

This poem is about how when your mentally ill you can feel out of place and alone but just know your not in this fight alone, there are others like you fighting the same battle and I'm one of them.

I never go any further in depth with what that is because anyone can tell that I do due to the poems I write, I only share that with a few people

And the words I say most often: "Where was I?"
