"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works." Virginia Wolf


What are they talking about?

Is it me?

I'm feeling out of place,

Kind of lonely,

Must I fight this battle alone?

Help me get through this,

Before I fade away.

Vison is blurry,

Can't see the truth.

I'm ill so ill,

Can't you see the real me?

This isn't me,

Before this I was happy.

Now I'm burning to ash,

My life at stake my mental break.


The author's comments:

This poem is about how when your mentally ill you can feel out of place and alone but just know your not in this fight alone, there are others like you fighting the same battle and I'm one of them.

Love, because you can’t love your way out of the lunatic asylum, but it makes it more fun to be a lunatic.

"Sometimes there is a fire that burns within. Unable to be put out, it brings sadness and tears, but those tears are what is able to put the fire out"

I can relate.

I never go any further in depth with what that is because anyone can tell that I do due to the poems I write, I only share that with a few people

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]

i know
i was making a harry potter joke cuz im a potterhead. didnt turn out well. one of my writing troubles is I cant add comedy.... and in my heavy, depressing worlds, that might really save readers brains.
