Baptized:

Cleansing water.
Forgotten sin.
All i've done.
All that's been.
Peaceful feeling.
Glimpse of hope.
Telling me that i will cope.
Submerged and washed.
I thank You.
Was undeserving.
That is true.

Rotten:

I'm slipping down a slippery slope.
Can't stop myself from falling.
Unrelenting pressure.
I cannot cope.
I think i've missed my calling.
Left with enough rope to hang myself.
My life i have forgotten.
Branded evil.
Can't escape.
To the core inside i'm rotten.

Scars:

Empty days.
Endless nights.
So wrong in my ways.
So many youthful fights.
Tried to change.
Mend my ways.
Just branded as strange.
Just empty days.
No solace to be found.
I struggle on in vain.
Get knocked to the ground.
The scars still remain.

Stand:

The closer you get to God the more resistance is offered by the devil.
I'm stuck somewhere inbetween.
Must've found my level.
Unworthy of being on God's side.
Don't want what's on the other.
I'll end it all before joining satan.
Want to stand with my fellow brother.

Evil:

Evil inside.
Just look at my evil face.
Evil this, evil that.
An evil bloody disgrace.
Evil is as evil does.
Evil all the way.
Evil scum.
Evil again.
I'm evil everyday.

Suicide:

Gonna end it all in a final act of stupidity.
Say all my goodbyes and let go of reality.
No-one will mourn me.
I don't really care.
Been broken inside.
My mind's beyond repair.
Worthless being.
Yes worthless i said.
Perhaps i'll feel wanted and loved when i'm dead.

Worth:

Left alone.
Don't care anymore.
Try and fight my way out.
It gets worse than before.
What's the point in trying?
I'm on my own at the end of the day.
Said all that i've said.
What more can i say?
Sink further each second.
I'm the scum of the earth.
I'm worth nothing.
I know what i'm worth.

Weakness:

To the devil: **** off!
You picked on me when i had no strength.
That's how strong you are.
Don't pick on the strong do you now.
You've shown me weakness.
That's all so far.

I wish that you were close enough here for some of us to wrap our arms around you and hold you.
Although the poetry is as always very beautiful and deep, it is so full of pain. I cannot reach across the ocean with my arms, but I can reach across time and space with love and hope for you.
You speak of things that many of us have felt many times....unworthy, rotten evil, hurting and despairing.
Since most people here know that my faith is in God I will say this...
the battle has already been fought, and the battle has already been won.
Satan/devil/evil attack each of us especially when we feel those feelings of being unworthy.
But the fact is the fact....the battle has been won.
Satan/evil have only the power we allow them to have. Darkness cannot exist with light, but it tries to creep into corners and grow.
Reach out to the light that is all around you.
Reach out to those of us who love you. I realize that we are not always here on a daily basis posting, however, that does nothing to change the caring that is inside of us.
Please know that you are loved.
There are many here who can learn from the pain you are able to express....many of us are not so open to do it.
But all of us have felt it at some point in time.
I hope that you are ready to stay and to exist here with us despite the imperfections in our surroundings and in ourselves.
The beauty of humanity is that we do not have to be perfect. We are accepted and loved just as we are.
My thoughts are with you and my hugs are on the breeze.

Secondsight,

Have you ever read the book "Touched With Fire" by Kay Redfield Jamison? Writers, poets, artist, musicians .... all kindred souls sharing the dual gift/curse of the creative "fire". Words, images, and melodies composed on top of scars. Does the brilliance come from pain, or the pain from brilliance? Sometimes it's hard to tell. The important thing, however, is that brilliance comes.

Although we've never met, I know that you have a gift - emotion is difficult enough to express in person, much less through mere words. Yours pour from the screen. The great challenge for folks like us is to find the balance, that place that allows us to feel deeply, express eloquently, and live peacefully. Not an easy thing.

Please know that you aren't alone. I'm grateful for what you share. I hope that you'll continue to write, while the words might at times feel like prison bars, they are also the wings that will take you to places visited by only a few. Try to understand the "why" of who you are, my friend. Way too often it's the most worthy who feel the least worthy, and the least worthy who demand the most reward.

You have friends here - there isn't one of us who hasn't known pain or who is without flaws. Please don't let the darkness obscure the gift.

Thanks for your kind words. I will write more about the things you've said, but this sentence stood out at first glance. What did you mean exactly? Adrian.

secondsight from time to time I'll have the inspiration to write a poem although mine are not nearly as good as yours. YOU HAVE A GIFT! Your writing style is truly unique, trust me I know. I've taken many creative writing classes when I decided to write a book. I don't know if you've ever been published or even thought about publishing your work but it would be a shame not to try.

secondsight your poems stir emotion. We can feel what your words say. They strike a cord deep within. The first poem I ever wrote helped me deal with my best friends death. He died at 16 in an automobile accident. It tore my heart out. Writing the poem helped me release the pain I felt inside and brought out all the emotion I had bottled up. Of course I cried like a baby writing it but it did help me out of my painful depression.

Secondsight I think you really should do something with your work. If you have enough for a book even an e-book would be one option. Magazines would also be an option. The New Yorker, Readers Digest even Playboy publish poems. Whatever you decide to do with your work if anything at all. Just remember you have friends here on the forum who enjoy it. Were also thankful you're here to share it with us. BTW if you have any poems on a dogs love I'd love to read one. Dan

Hello Adrian,

The "why" of who you are is the reason for your life. Everything in the universe is so intricately (and delicately) interwoven. No energy, no life is wasted. Despair comes from the feeling that you are living in a void where "you" don't matter. Nothing could be farther from the truth. To use an old analogy, think of the ripple in the pond. I remember, at one particularly low point in my life (when things were so dark that I was actually thinking of creative ways to off myself), a very powerful "thought" entered my head - "what ever made you think that your life was about you?" That hit me like a ton of bricks.

There is a "why" to your life. Sometimes it's clear to see, other times you have to scrape away the mud to find it. Do you know how many people you touch, Adrian, when you think that no one can feel you. Your gift with words is very powerful. Think about the people you know and how many have the depth and skill to express in that way. My guess is none. Gifts are always given for a reason.

This conversation is a perfect example. I don't post that much, and only when it's something that I feel strongly about. Your poetry spoke to me, a connection was made. Some people are meant to be catalysts, to wake people up, make them think, make them feel. Not all of these feelings are happy, after all they are but reflections of life. That's OK - in fact, that's critical. To really know something we must see beyond the surface shine.

Think of how many things would not have happened the way they did without your part in them. I'll bet that there are far more than you imagined, and far, far more than you realize.

Obviously, I didn't kill myself that very dark day. It was an acknowledgment of my inner despair directed at "something" bigger than me. To that "thought" that turned me around, I'm very gratefull.
I would have missed some wonderful experiences and the company of some very special people.

I would not have known Adrian, or enjoyed his gift.

You guys just blow me away! I don't know exactly what to say in return. It's funny, but i'm not much of a talker really. I just write down how i feel, and express myself that way. I appreciate all that you've wrote. Thankyou so much. smiley

Destroyed:

Unrelenting fear.
Obsession.
Shadows of darkness.
No progression.
Forces unseen.
Corruption of what's inside.
I'm dying of death itself.
An itching to confide.
Paradise lost.
Found an empty void.
Two parts of one.
One half to be destroyed.
