Slow Poison

Sugar Suicide

Today wasn't like yesterday

Today was like today

I ran in circles of worry

sat in puddles of self doubt


I looked at you and you filled me with love

made the walls around us change to colors

you place a window above my head to show me the light


but still I sit.

with a slow poison in my veins

the one that builds after years without a place to call home

the one that builds in the darkness of my room

the one that builds in the worthlessness I show

the one thats killing me slowly


You've turned the sky from overcast to rainbows

you've shown me theres always another day

but my eyes are blind to the beauty

and my ears are deaf to your happiness

  • Comment from author about the poem: Its not all hard to figure out but this poem is based around my depression. I have a lovely boyfriend who can sometimes make the world look nice and sometimes give me the hope to push on, but no matter how hard I try and how beautiful this new world is I always find myself being overtaken by the mental breakdowns and unprompted sadness that is trying to tear up the new life I have sitting at my finger tips

    I relate with this, lovely poem full of feeling. Depression and anxiety sucks writing helps.

    What beautiful things though, can come out of pain...your poem is proof. Pain is not to be feared. Keep writing, keep loving, keep living.
