Depression Poems: Pain of an Insane
(Truth or Consequences)
I feel so hollow deep inside
I will crumble if you hold me tight
No light at the end of tunnel
Just a long road with no end to struggle
Slim are the chances of my survival
nothing can ever commence my revival.
You think I am strong
We know you are wrong
don't wipe my tears, they help me heal
Rest of my pain I do conceal
Don't mock at me or my imagined fears
There have been few answers to my unending prayers,
It's true I will not respond to your insensitive jeers
The bond I had with the rest of you
Seems a flimsy coweb, got little to rescue
You are very talented Nalini! I am happy to publish your poems so you can express yourself and share it with others. You can truly be an inspiration here!
I saw that you are from T or C! I grew up in NM and spent most of my childhood summers at Elephant Butte Lake! I no longer live in NM but get back a few times a year. Spent last 4th of July hanging out on Long Point with my family. Even got to hand feed the goats that live on the Elephant. It was pretty amazing! I love being on (or by) the water! It is where I can truly find peace!
I hope you have a place where you can find peace as well.
Buenos noches, mi amiga y gracias!
