"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


A fire burns within,

And water can't win.

As it burns,

Something turns.

Turns to the darkside,

Taking my shattered soul on a ride.

Piece by piece it builds,

My broken soul it wields.

Now I can't be broken, 

A fire has awoken.

It says, "Look what I've become."

Because you never helped me up,

When I laid broken.


The author's comments:

This poem is about the time in every person's life (at least those diagnosed with depression) feel that life is over and that it will never get better so all that there is left to do is give in to the raging fire saying bite back but your not alone because there will always be a way out.

When it is said
Some say.

It just begins to live
That day."

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)
And the words I say most often: "Where was I?"

oh sad but so so awesome
