lAUGH IT OFF? :( The Blank Canvas

July 26th, 2016by CARLOSPEJUAN

So I think instead of a suicide letter with all the things that lead to that moment, or what I want people to change, or not do (like cry and stuff) I think I want one that you can’t help but laugh at.

Someone suggested writing a normal suicide letter and then posting lol at the end. I laughed at that then cried a little, then laughed again.

But mine should read something like this:

I was bored and was kind of curious as to what was in the other life. So I decided to find a portal, but that was taking too long so meh screw I …

Yet another shitty poem (atrocious)

July 24th, 2016by shatterediris

So I kind of like this one, not sure why…. This is one that I wrote today, had to write a few because I didn’t do any writing yesterday and that made me feel bad…. I normally don’t do this on weekends, but I skipped a few days during the week so I have to catch up, I decided that this one can get a title because it feels like it wants that as a title…. Again as always this is mostly just freely written by me in a sitting or two (this one was two (30 minute break)) so it is pre rough and …

Why do people fail at suicide is it because they don’t want to die really? or is it because they haven’t done what they were meant to on this earth? Is it  because for some reason we aren’t meant to die? and why is it that I’m still alive when some other innocent is dying of cancer? why am I still breathing when other people, people who matter, who have lives, kids, people who need them, but I’m alive. I’m not important not really. I don’t know this just kinda came to me and I don’t know why…

I’m sorry but I needed to share this (yet another shitty poem)

July 14th, 2016by shatterediris

I’m sorry I know I just posted a poem, but then something got into me and I ended up writing this…. And then after that spent like the last hour or so crying…. I don’t know why, I hardly ever cry…. Maybe I should just share this, maybe that will help? I don’t know…. Maybe I actually expressed something with this? I don’t know…. Again sorry about 2 just like 6 hours apart (technically for me that was yesterday :P) but again I’ve seen people spam more than this and it didn’t seem to annoy anybody…. so if you don’t like it I can take …

I was bored, so I wrote this quickly

July 14th, 2016by shatterediris

I was trying to go for a happier sort of thing…. I decided to share this just because I wanted to…. I wasn’t planning to write anything tonight, but I got bored…. Didn’t take much time with this, I had other things to distract me today :/ Like getting ready for seeing my favourite person tomorrow 😀 yay  I have to be clean and presentable and stuffs….

*start*

Life may be a thorn in my side

But I got some tweezers I’ll turn this tide

I’ll swim against it with all my might

I will not drown, I’ll feed this light

Despite the fact that it’s in me

But that’s just fine indeed

As finally …

yet another poem :D (fourth one)

July 12th, 2016by shatterediris

Welp I know I posted just a bit ago, but I like today poem quite a bit even though it is a little awkward with rhythm and pacing in a few spots…. I don’t think it’s too horrible, and I quite like it, I probably could refine this quite a bit and it would be rather good. ^_^

There once was a real young child

He grew up happy rowdy and wild

Just hung around the house all day

Doing cartwheels he thought it’d stay that way

Forever, but then school just came

After that nothing ever was the same

It was nice at first, he made some friends

But he learned that …

Confused

July 8th, 2016by NajaH

Why cant I, me, myself just find the guts to let life go. I feel so stuck and depressed. I feel lost, and uncared for. Unloved! I will not get into detail, but ive beem through so much in life, i feel there is no point in living anymore. Im am always up all times of the night. Can never get a good night sleep. Thoughts are always on my mind. Ive tried hanging myself, drinking toxic, taking pills, and jumping. I obviously have not succeed. Why, I seem to always ask myself why suicide cant be so easy like the snap of a finger. …

Happy little poem for rocketman

July 7th, 2016by shatterediris

He’s a Rocketman, and he’s up there all alone…. But at least he’s higher than a kite 😛

*start*

 

Let’s look up and watch the stars

Let’s forget about our scars

Let’s hug under the moon light

Let’s be happy let’s ignite

Negative feelings just like trash

Watch them burn melt to ash

It may free our souls at last

Recover from pain that’s passed

Let’s lay down on the grass

Let’s forget let’s bypass

Sorrow and misery

Make this world glittery

If we treat others lovingly

Our world may change suddenly

Some more hugging while smiling

And pain will stop compiling

Our love will fix everything

Care for others like a sapling

Shower them with some love

Watch them grow, reaching far above

Their goals, thanks …

yet another shitty poem (?)

July 6th, 2016by shatterediris

Welp here is my poem tonight (I want to share it for some reason, is longer than normal) It’s sort of two poems though that kind of fit together in a way. One of them I sort of wrote based on some things that are commonly said to me (had an experience with them today actually) and the other is I guess a response? Not a great response, nor really from me, more just wrote it from the perspective of the imaginary target of the first one…. Not sure is confusing I just wrote these took about 30 minutes which is pre long really -_-

Whisper

July 5th, 2016by hopeisafourletterword

Running a race

like a mouse in a cage

getting nowhere

but I’m trying

Forging ahead

but I’m stuck in the bed

that I made

so I’m lying

 

I’m down to a whisper

in a daydream on a hill

shut down to a whisper

can you hear me still

A shitty poem ^_^

July 2nd, 2016by shatterediris

I hate this world, it’s so evil

Full of pain, and full of needles

Filled with a substance oh so lethal

Pushed through our skin by these deceitful

People that lie to us

Every day they break our trust

Saying that we are okay

And that there is no way

For us to alter this condition

That we live in, lacking nutrition

And ambition it is their mission

To beat us down into submission

Be their slaves until we die

Thinking it’s fine to just get by

Without smiling, without laughter

This existence is a disaster

**end**

I want opinions on this. How does it feel? What could I do better with it? I tend to write poems every night, and this …

it’s been a while,

July 1st, 2016by quietcheep

but here’s another poem

i had a dream last night
where i blinked
and you were gone

a lifetime had passed
between the two of us
i had become old
and feeble and frail.
and the world was so different
without you there

i looked for you everywhere
asked everyone if they’d seen you.
and i cried
as you slipped further and further away

but i kept going
with my weak little heart
and my teary eyes
and aching body

and i lived for you
for the both of us
for the memory
of your smile
and the sound of your voice

the pieces of my weak little heart,
shifting with every stitch,
every clumsy thread meant to pull me back together,
kept pumping
kept thumping
kept beating
kept living

and i laughed
when i felt our

I Feel Depression Coming Back

July 1st, 2016by GerbzBaby

( Inspired by the beautiful animated films by Miyazaki. I present a drawing of Totoro and Catbus! Enjoy<3)

I’ve been happy or.. At least carefree for a while even though I barely had any communication with anyone for the past months.. I started to feel strong, like I could do anything and honestly not give a sh*t about what people think.. But all of a sudden i feel my depression creeping back up on me. I’m scared. I don’t want to feel depressed anymore. I WANT TO BE HAPPY. But how can I be happy when I have …

The Whispers

June 30th, 2016by SilentVoices

Sometimes, you wonder where those whispers in your mind originate from.

These are not strange voices that I hear, nor do they frighten me. They are perhaps a hybrid between my thoughts and subconscious. But they are there. Not loud, but not so soft to just dismiss as thoughts. They are intrusive, and some days, relentless. The whispers sound… Familiar. Maybe they take on my own voice… Or at least what I think I sound like in my head.

Some days they are silly, commenting on little quirks throughout the day. I do not think of much them during such times. Other days, when I have fallen into an unbearable low, they are draining. Tiresome. During those days when I have to use every last bit of energy to perform daily tasks, the whispers are as clear as day:

Why do you even bother?

Sketch for kitty fish (whiskered-fish)

June 27th, 2016by shatterediris

meow :D

meow :D

It’s a kitty Fish…. I wish I could have sketched it better, but I apparently have no idea what a cat fish looks like (yes I drew this with pictorial reference, which didn’t help much)…. I suck at drawing living things, and I wanted to give this a cute cartoonish sort of style but I couldn’t quite achieve that…. But I have always wanted to draw a picture of a kitty fish for Whiskered-fish…. I hope this doesn’t upset you BTW…. I am sure somebody else here may be able …

Pointless

June 21st, 2016by cephalus

I know life has no point.
In talks, it seemed to me,
You always had a counterpoint.

Feelings are difficult to pinpoint.
Impossible when thoughts,
Very much Conjoint.

What you describe– as if you’re at gunpoint.
I can’t help, but hope,
It’s not your endpoint.

Seems like everything is at a disjoint.
Family, life, thoughts,
Maybe it’s time for a checkpoint.

I hope it’s just a midpoint.
What if tomorrow, you wake up,
Realize this is the turning-point?

Either way, you didn’t disappoint.

I hope this brings a different viewpoint.
Damn, where did I put my ballpoint?

This written for a good friend that mostly lurked here. But I was a day, just one day, too late.
