Sanding on the edge of Waterloo Bridge
With the cold wind cutting my face,
I glance down to the Thames far below;
It ebbs and flows, a sea of waste.

I hold tight to the iron bar,
Blades of ice begin to pour.
Behind me the […]

I’m not schizophrenic.
But I have a mental illness.
I have schizophrenia.
There is a difference.
I am not an illness.

I am unable to distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate.
Reptiles and snakes […]

Palaces in the Sky

By |July 25th, 2012|Anxiety, Dark, Delusion, Fear, Panic, Paranoia, Psychosis, Reality, Symptoms|Comments Off on Palaces in the Sky

I am building palaces in the sky though I can only see the stars.
I can only see the stars, and
The quarter moon’s light shining dimly upon the horizon
Casting its shadows […]

Seclusion

By |July 23rd, 2012|Alone, Anxiety, Dark, Death, Fear, Philosophical, Symptoms|Comments Off on Seclusion

Are banned from the world outside,
Here in this desolate place where nobody sees the light of day.
I am alone where […]
