There were times In my life I believe I could have done so much better If not for the curse of
depression

That I've suffered on of all my life but believed I could have done so much better particularly In my
youth

For I knew my wife to be from when she was just a kid and because of depression I missed out on an opportunity to marry a girl of sixteen

This girl called Helen who much later In years became my wife but because of depression I was robbed of the chance to marry her at sweet sixteen

For she was even more beautiful then and those of you who suffer depression you'll know just what I mean, for once you have It  depression never fully go away
Curse of depression never ever leaves comes and goes It robbed so much of my youth
and a chance to have had so many more years with my wife
Helen

A mask with a face that no one knew
But you
I let you see me
Be with me
***** and scared I lie awake now
Your selfish words still robbing me
How?
And now you say that I am guilty
But I shared with you my reality
Everything I knew about myself at that time
But after time
You began slipping
Tripping
Falling into the cracks of your own mask
So I gotta ask
Was it the pressure of your own fears that broke you?
Because I was nothing but kind to you
There for you
When the rest of the world refused to be
And now that we
are nothing but strangers
*were nothing but strangers
Somehow your walls
= my mask?
Your fears
for my innocence?
I should no longer have to suffer
From your hesitance
Being cheated is the worst ain't it? It truly is so invasive and it robs you of everything you gave to that person. In my case....it was everything.

Oh so bitterly cold today
been out, but soon came
home nothing to do but
lay under the bed covers try to keep
warm
No dought I'll fall to sleep In hope to dream of Helen she'll  keep me warm I feel so old now, I fear winter so much more not even started to get really
cold yet
Still, snow and Ice to come sometimes makes wonder how many more winter do have left to live
through
Will I make the coming summer, what If we get a really cold winter
followed lousy summer will I cope with that disappointment last summer was
exceptional
And my poor wife never saw It through she died In the cold of winter so much more difficult to live through winter without Helen with
me
Love of my life who died In the middle of winter that winter was followed by the best summer In she should have had that last summer
life so cruel, at least we both could have one last summer together before she left me

Give me back my dreams If
you've stolen them, return the memories so cherished
I will not be robbed of that
of all, that's left now of my wife
Don't rob me of Helen give
her back to me my lord It's
I who need her more give her a little more time before you call her number I beg you
God
A poem really written the time I first lost Helen felt so much anger as If she was stolen from I wanted her back I wasn't giving up

"Oh" Helen If could love you
again I'd hold you so tight and
never let go, for fear of losing
you again
For when you passed on, you
should have died In arms for
that's where our life together
began
For staff on the Hospital ward
we're trying to be kind thinking
they were sparing the pain of
you passing
But they didn't undetstand my
need to be there, as always I'd
been In life, robbed my chance
to be there and Helen to die in
my arms.
Hospital didn't stand my need to be
there 3 days and night I tended Helen
every need never leaving her side
then not to be there when she needed
me to be

For the first time when I saw you
You were gossiping and giggling with your friends which I assumed them to be
Second I saw you being pinched in your naval by one of our classmates
After a year or so we had a good bond
When I saw you smooching that very guy
It felt a little bad , but still hadn't an issue
Days went then weeks and months
That giggle, your behavior had changed a bit
We had exchanged our cell no's
Had been talking late night
You're the one who gifted me something for the first time in a long
We had started altering our schedules with each other's priorities
It went for few months when
I decided to break the ice between our friendship-***-love
I proposed you on the day of our board exam
You didn't replied for days ,just to say
BK I do love you BUT......
And that was it . At least from your side
You never called again nor did I
Friends made fun of mine when I cried
Just cause I'm a boy and boys don't cry

It's been 2 years now
I still go through our conversations,
Your pictures and every moment I could remember .....
Just to remind myself that how cheated I'd been
Never to fall in that situation again
Weather it was my "pious love" or " you attracting beauty that lead me to have a infatuation towards you"
Something, sometime and you

You won't know
They don't know
I'm still suspended
In space, beautiful blooms deadheaded.

I couldn't flow
Couldn't write.
Blinders blocking sight,
Words unspoken in my throat,
A sea of death I wasn't afloat.
All that was lost was robbed

Left alone with with a heart that throbbed.

But I didn't understand,
Now I do,
All that rain reaps only more rain,
You must find fire for every droplet of water.
Find the inferno and burn to live,
Biologically driven, life's not yours to give.

You will breath,
You have your breathe,
You fight death
And will not leave.
You have choice
Just use your voice.
Heist PRT2 Is less cryptic with more personality.

my version of love
is getting robbed eight times
in a row
on the same street corner,
and hoping today will be different

Geoffrey slipped in the shower stall
bashed his head against the wall
went to heaven
sent to ****
robbing Peter, paying Paul
The first house we built, the builder was already spending monies he didn't have. He declared bankruptcy, the day after we closed :D
