Here It Is

Poem by: Charlotte Jayne

Summary

This one's fairly personal. It inspired by my on-off relationship with depression and how I feel about it. Yes, I'm oh so aware of the cliché but it's real, and this is how it is. For me anywho. It's not one of my more positive pieces - I'll give you that.

Laying on the summer's green,
Where cotton-candy sweeps away thunders tears
That heated fizz blurring true and surreal
Reflects in my tinted vision.

But you're a million miles from here
In a hidden, diseased place where I'm not
You’re eyeing up your opportunity
To feast upon sunshine.

You're my dark secret
The shadow on my dreams
Slinking in poisonous silence
Infecting each moment you touch

In this bright animation, I'm free of limitation
No collar round myneck
Nor tied to your leash
For now you’re shrugged out of my thoughts.

But I'm wise of disguise
See the despise in my eyes?
I've felt the cold burn of metal in my spine
All I want is control of my mind.

I see you out on the horizon
Staring through my soul
Magnifying my fears
Drawing out my tears.

I can feel your fist through my chest
Gripping my heart in your palm
I'm gritting my teeth
Staring at the floor

That sweet serene world of butterflies and wishes
Is the rug snatched sharp from under-foot.
Hand me a parachute,
But baby I’m still falling

My dreams scatter the floor
Like the ashes of a once promised reality
I’m grasping at the air
Gasping for resuscitation

From this lonely euphemism
Where all is grey
And nothing matters
Anymore.
