NaPoWriMo Day 22: Depression

Warning!!! This poem is a description of Depression.


Sadness

 Jarring, fearful, intimidating

Anxious, manipulating, contemplating

Fleeting, controllable, misunderstood, debilitating

Trapped, parasitic, worrying, underestimated

Harmful, terrifying

Depression

NaPoWriMo Day 19: Eshanie

Extraordinary, all I aspire to be is extraordinary

Silent, but observant – I know what’s going on

Had I succumbed to my wicked desires, all that would’ve come was more pain

Another betrayal, another person out of my life

Now more than ever, I must be strong, though I wonder

If it’s even worth it all

Even God can’t save you now

NaPoWriMo Day 12: Scum

When I first met you,

I looked up to you

As if you were another brother of mine

We took you in

And you stabbed us in the back

You betrayed in the worst of ways,

You lazy prick

I hope you’re happy,

Because I guarantee

You will never find another family

Like us

When I first met you,

I pitied you

You lost someone precious,

And I know now how that feels

But even so,

You did us wrong,

You liar,

You thief

I know you deviants

For what you are

Lazy,

Gluttonous,

Traitorous,

Thieves,

Scum.

The only thing worse than you

Is the Devil that’s living in my house

I’ll be glad when I’m finally

Free

NaPoWriMo Day 11: Sister, Sister

I wonder what goes on in that head of yours,

Your dreams, your hopes, your ambitions

You’re such a beautiful girl,

It’s a shame, the choices you’ve made

They will forever follow you, even after death

You’re a cunning thief,

And an even better liar

The things you’ve done are almost unforgivable

I love you, sister,

But I hate the things you’ve done,

This persona of stupidity, the acts of treason

How could you hurt me like this?

I could’ve avoided this frustrating deafness,

These annoyingly weak eyes,

Those painful braces,

Family is not worth anything, sometimes

All they want is to suck every bit of joy,

Create chaos and confusion

You could’ve changed your ways,

I guess you still can,

But How can anyone trust you?

I wish I had Mom’s and Auntie M’s relationship,

To have a sister who loves me for who I am,

And not simply because of our mother

What happened?

Who made you hurt so much,

To have no respect for yourself

Is the saddest thing on Earth

I truly, genuinely hope,

That you find inner peace one day.

NaPoWriMo Day 7: Thank You

To my teachers, peers, and friends, this is for you.


1 2 3,

Started with a tragedy

4 5 6,

Months of stress, finally, finally, soothed by an angel

7 8 9,

And just like that, our tiny shred of happiness is snatched away

10 11 12,

When will this circle of dread, depression, and anger lift?

13 14 15,

This test of faith I must pass,

Or I will surely go mad

this beaten woman I must stand by,

For we have no one else to trust

In this long hour of darkness,

I find comfort in the love and kindness of my teachers, my peers

Thank you for your unending support,

We really need it

If I could hug you all, I would

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Outcast Ch. 1: As The World Falls Down

The savory aroma of collard greens wafted through the kitchen. I grab a fork out of the drawer near the stove to stir the delectable greens, and – after slightly burning my hand and wrist from the steam – taste them. “Mm, not yet.” I reach up to the overhanging cupboard to shuffle through several bottles of spices before picking out one of my favorite spices, cayenne pepper. I grin as I carefully measure one tablespoon of the spicy seasoning into the large pot of greens. I stir the greens using a clean spoon from the utensils drawer and plop the lid on. It will be a while for the greens to be nice and tender, just how we like them! “Anastelle! Sophie’s here!” My mother’s sweet, southern lilted voice rang throughout the house.

Lilies and Roses

WARNING: There is implied suicide towards the middle of the story.


The lavish dining room was heavily decorated with sparkling gems and diamonds. The massive table, which I thought to be stone, had ruby gems embedded into it. A feast of various meats, cheeses, and sweet fruit lie in front of me. “My dear Proserpine, you must be ravenous after our journey!” I nervously look at Pluto, standing tall with his dark hair and dark eyes as he enters the dining room. He approaches the head of the table and leans dangerously close to me. “Aren’t you hungry?” He asked. Continue reading “Lilies and Roses”

Birds of A Feather Flock Together

via Daily Prompt: Distant


 

“Donny…are you okay?” Anya’s concerned gaze burned through Donny’s back. He scoffs and turns to look at his older sister. “Of course, I’m okay, Anya. How can you even ask that? Our sister just left us, just like Dad!” His dark brown eyes glare harshly at Anya, who flinches, her bright, brown eyes moving to the floor.
