Feeling miserable so much that you'd rather have no feelings/emotions at all...based abit on a song that I like.

You'll never understand
This sadness and misery...
Beyond just "emotions "
They reign over me

I keep trying to stand
Then I'm back down on my knees
I don't need a hand
I'm beyond just "weak"

Soon, I'm flat on the ground
Now I've no where left to fall
I can't stand this pain
I'd rather feel nothing---
I'd rather feel nothing at all

this is amazing, It was just awesome but a bit sad, but it explained how you feel, and thats basicly what writing poetry is

Thanks! This one is actually inspired by the song in my head right now ("I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all...")--- I just changed the concept to what I think, I'd rather feel NOTHING at all. Thanks for reading & commenting

Ohhh, you went dark on me again. Very well written. You bring the raw overwhelming power of despair to the reader. You got some amazing skills. Wonderful work. AS

And YOU continue to amaze me with your charm! You really know just what to say! Thank you! Yes, abit dark this one. Like I said, it was inspired by the song playing in my head today...not auto-bio, although I DO agree...I'd rather feel NOTHING than to have to go thru grief & misery (but then, of course, you'd not feel joy or ecstasy either! Ahhh, the human condition!)... Again, thank you!

Now who's been hitting the whisky, Tesseth?

Poetry about feeling depressed is, um, depressing. Now, I don't want to come across like some of the God-Squad reviewers on this site but HEY! look up, there's a world outside the navel we gaze at when we're down. Let's write about it!

Or, are you just improvising on some song lyric you heard?

I dunno!

Yes, yes...(actually, just the other night, I DID have a drink (haven't drank in a couple years) and it DID happen to be whiskey! Spooky!) Anyway, YES---simply based on the song in my head. (Though depression isn't foreign to me!) Of course, I do like to 'think' that I CAN write about just about anything that I would like to! I think that "channeling" is fun (writing, not necessarily with MY emotions, but something I've witnessed or am aware of). Yes, it would be 'nice' to be perky all of the time, but 'perky' I just am not! AGAIN, thanks for reading & reviewing---I just love your comments, always so thought provoking! :)

Lovely Tesseth, you definately know your way arround words and reading your work is rather...stimulating!
This one mirrors the feelings I feel today.

Well, I am sorry that it is 'mirroring' your feelings today! Yes, I sometimes think that I'd rather always feel 'nothing' than to ever have to feel depressed, grief, or misery ever again. But while we suffer at times---maybe then we can bless the monotony and mundane moments instead of taking them for granted. I don't know! Anyway---I DO appreciate that you're reading some of my writing and I'm glad you've taken the time to comment me! Thanks!

different, but understandable...some days I go into my own little world, where nothing can touch me..where I feel nothing..then I return to reality better able to cope..I like those days..you've said it well...Z

Thanks Z! I have alot of days like that too. I actually don't mind either...like I said, sometimes I'd rather feeling nothing, cuz I know it could be worse... Thanks for reading & commenting me!

Those three stanzas were just enough to enlighten me. I found it quite lovely. It's always nice to know that you are able to write about basically whatever strikes and interest. I love it.

Isis, thank you. I am glad that you enjoyed it. I actually had a much longer poem and kept cutting it up. This is what I was left with. I'm glad you've read some of my writing and have taken the time to comment me---always appreciated!

Great job, filled with strong emotion. You wrote how you felt, and you wrote it beautifully. Truly awesome, poetry is such a good way to express emotion without getting involved in something you'll regret. And you always redefine emotion in poetry in my mind each time I read something new. Great job, always a pleasure to read.

Thank you Dan. I really appreciate your feedback. I'm glad that you enjoyed this one. Thanks for reading & commenting!

Beyond liking it. I do understand. Have often felt like that but not able to talk about it when I already have left the feelings behind. Then nothing matters.

Deep feelings of sadness and lonliness always seem to bring out the "poet" in me...either in the moment, coming "out of it", or simply in remembrance. Remembering how I felt and realizing that their are others still feeling that way at any given moment---sometimes that inspires me to write about it. Thanks for reading & taking the time to comment---always greatly appreciated!
