Short Poem about a mental illness.


You hold onto your dress

it blows in the gales

your hair flicks all over your face

that tells a thousand tales.

You balance on one foot

to take away the pain

shift our weight on to the other

keeping your reasons the same.

Your skin glows with orange tint

your mind is truly surreal

it makes me think of other things

now your heart wont ever heal.

I never meant it, you know?

all they things I said.

you looked at me with such disdain

as you hit me round the head

the rain falls heavily down

soaking in your hair

you think of what its like to drown

as if you'd ever dare!

Your body throws off the pier

and loops around my mind

the water crushing everything

all the things I’ll never find.
