The Light on The Hill

By |March 17th, 2014|Alone, Anti-Stigma, Fear, Philosophical, Shame|1 Comment

I’m not the fool on the hill!
I’m not standing still,
While my eyes do shrill.
I believe in the Lord’s will,
As I take my sugar coated pill.
I’ve had it with the world’s fill.
Why can’t I be a light on the hill?

Little Green Café

By |January 21st, 2014|Current Events, Depression, Fear, Suicide|Comments Off on Little Green Café

Just before I die,
I’ll have a slice of pecan pie,
In the little green café off Bloomsbury Square.

I sit by the window, thousand yard stare,
And wonder what to do in my final hour?

The British museum has a lecture on the Cosmos
At […]

The Schizophrenic Train

By |October 15th, 2013|Confusion, Dark, Fear, Lost, Mind Games, Paranoia, Senses|Comments Off on The Schizophrenic Train

The schizophrenia train runs straight through your brain it is signalled by destruction and it leaves you insane. You travel in darkness in the middle of night as it leaves reality you beg for the light. It's a one way ticket to hell as you arrive at the station. The devil leaves you with nothing but antipsychotic medication. You begin to panic you must be free some jump the train to safety The ticket is bought like you; your soul taken in vain- there are no stops on the schizophrenic train. @schizpoetry

From The Edge Of Waterloo Bridge

By |July 30th, 2013|Alone, Anxiety, Confusion, Dark, Death, Depression, Fear, Mind Games, Panic, Psychosis, Suicide, Trapped|Comments Off on From The Edge Of Waterloo Bridge

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 […]

These voices in my head so loud and so true, you must end your life you tell me to do.
Your deep dark voice it spreads through my brain, you got me feeling I’m very insane.
I sob and I cry and […]

The Quiet Room

By |September 13th, 2012|Dark, Death, Demonic, Fear, Panic, Symptoms, Trapped|Comments Off on The Quiet Room

By a thread, I hang, as the knell tolls.
Moribund and cacophonous,
Surrounded by angels of death, I am.
They chortle and laugh at me, as
The tragic side show carries on.
I am amongst the persecuted,
Caught in a sinister grasp-
With the clapping of thunder,
My […]

Night has fallen, although
Midnight hours are never strange, and
When rain or snow,
Sometimes is
Heavily falling, though these sounds I cannot hear.
It was just another night,
Another day, or
Another minute
Just as yesterday has
Slipped through the crack
Beneath my bedroom door,
Locked, dead bolted and keyed,
I […]

The page is turned to next
The decision has brought a new path
The fork has yawed the way asunder
I have been guided to where
I have lost my way or found it
Age held me in its grasp
Truth absconded from me
Reality ripped away […]

Palaces in the Sky

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

Forever lost inside my own world-never to come out of hiding
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 […]

Tonight is a dark night
Here within the garden of the deceased
In this place where wounded spirits who have lost their sanity
Are banned from the world outside,
Here in this desolate place where nobody sees the light of day.
I am alone where […]

Electoconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

By |July 18th, 2012|Alone, Dark, Delusion, Fear, Panic, Psychosis, Reality|Comments Off on Electoconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

In this moment I feel as if I am falling,
Into a prison from nowhere,
I see my shadow arabesque as
I watch my reflection appear
In a river of never abating madness-
Hiding from all that is real,
Moments have passed since I lay upon
A […]
