I’ve only ever written words of heartbreak and heartache when it comes to us
The never ending tale of unrequited love
That finally found its end in your warm embrace and gentle kiss

My lonely nights are occupied
I no longer wish for dreams cause reality is so much better

I hope that one day this gets a happy ending
But you left before I’d finished writing
Hunched up in silent tears
Reliving each day I had with you
Before you changed your mind
A fantasy of finding myself In a magical forest the deeper Into the forest I
walked the more believable the fantasy became
Finding myself eventually
stood In a clearing there a waterfall and this pretty girl sat swinging her legs dipping her feet In the water
She smiled she wasn't afraid of me didn't even seem surprised that I was there at all, she beckoned to me
sit beside
She was so pretty she handed me a brush that lay beside her, I began to brush her loverly hair beautiful and long It
It covered the Intimate part of her body for she was completely ***** but
she didn't object to my stare for the most beautiful figure she
It seemed she had total trust In me she stood taking my hand lifting me to my feet then to lead me much further Into
where she and I made beautiful love together It was a fantasy I never wanted  to leave
would have been more than happy to stay In the fantasy with that beautiful girl forget about reality wouldn't find this In real
This Is a rewrite of a previous poem I wrote,while writing this fantasy got so Involed almost felt didn't won't to
leave the forest and that pretty girl I'd made the fantasy so real

23 rd December I'm sat waiting for the supermarket
cafe to open outside Its absolutely raining cats
and dogs
which makes
the anniversary of my
wife's passing so much
more difficult to deal
with cold wet and miserable

the best way to describe the start to Christmas doesn't
seem like It's Christmas at
all just feels like another day
Still waiting for my first coffee sat with Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time playing In my ears
just doesn't feel right somehow almost a feeling of being false to be glad when It's all over get back to the real world
Outside raining cats and dogs
artful day makes Christmas almost false dosen't feel real

Maybe you'll forever be my almost —
We almost made it
You almost loved me
I almost have your heart
You were almost mine
I almost got you
We're so close to falling
But you left.
Almost is never enough so close to being in love~

hark! I am greeted by angels
each with devil horns and
spikes in their backs
blackmailing my feet to lead me
away from from the shining seas
twinkling eyes and fluttered eyelashes
fare thee well in these trying times
they screech at me from
their balconies
all I can do is cry
deep in my hands
cracking my nose with my knuckles

Sometimes I get stuck in this state of Darkness
where my eyes can see
but it's like my head is just pitch black
and I almost wish I couldn't see anything,
like I wish I could just curl myself into a ball so tightly that I disappear from space for a while

sometimes I get stuck in this space
and I feel like my tears and my thoughts
are climbing up my esophagus and clogging my throat
blocking my airway
suffocating me from the inside

maybe I never told you I was depressed because who wants to relive that moment
that choking hazard moment of cotton ***** in my throat

maybe I never told you I was depressed because there are no words I can use to describe it that don't transform themselves into their meanings
that don't take over my mind
crawl through my head like little worms
eating away at my brain
my thoughts
my skin

have you ever thought of a traumatic experience and then felt those events happening again
felt the dark hole of life-threatening-trauma attack your mind
Shiver through your body
like it was a demon you let in through a memory-
through a word

maybe I didn't tell you I was depressed
because I wasn't strong enough
my depression fills me to the brim
fills my head and my chest
my arms and my fingers
I can feel it moving through my body
I can feel it expanding and engulfing everything inside of me
every last vein, nerve, *****, and tissue
how can you expect me to have the energy to fight
how can you expect me to have the energy to pick up the phone
to open my mouth
how can you expect me to have energy-to have the courage to utter the words of how I feel
I feel so worthless
in those moments I feel like there's this black whole inside me and it's consuming everything
it's taking everything but my skin
and it disgusts me

can you imagine the feeling,
having something so utterly repulsive on your skin you had to scrape it off immediately
It felt like you needed to be cleansed
like you needed a shower
take that feeling
now imagine it being under your skin
imagine, every muscle ***** vein nerve every cell in your body underneath your epidermis disgusts you
imagine all you wanted to do was to
and you can't
no matter how hard you try
you can't scrape it off
you can't claw It off

imagine you're scared of spiders
now imagine you're covered in spiders
and someone's holding down your arms
so you can't get them off
imagine them walking on your skin
in your mouth
crawling on your open eyes
in your ears
you're cringing at your own skin
You can feel them going down your throat
Their disgusting tickle in your stomach
in every crevice of your body
their tunneling under your skin
and you can't get them off
what are you supposed to do
but cry
My best friend's mom who doesn't believe in depression asked why I never told her I was depressed...

It's like we're these two predestined stars
Bound to clash into one unfortunate,
Yet bedazzling starburst
Yes, it's destructive, but seeing it from afar
It's one of the most remarkable collisions of a lifetime
