A Poem by Emo_Cat

Sometimes I don't know why

I fight to

Stay anymore.

It just doesn't seem worth it.

To be


the time of


with my life.

Everything is



The constant stream of tears.

That flow.

Throughout the day and night.

My pain is


I am hit,

by a new wave of pain.



I face the reason for the pain.

Everyday i see it,

burns horribly.

Every part of my


is sore,


And no where near bing numb.

"Everything is blurry/From/The constant flow of tears" This poem is so deep and true to me. It sometimes makes me sad when I read pieces this raw and truthful, but then I go and look at my own writing and realize mine are just as sad. If you need anything; I'm just a mail send away :)

Every line carries such a haunted space of the soul... aching in the reading, wanting so much for the life to rise, like a spring garden from winter's cold barrenness. May the light, the life rise soon to fill your pages with poetic spring... where you belong.

I have to take you at your word here, becuz this sounds hauntingly realistic. I’m sorry you feel this way, if this is your own story. I’ve fought off such feelings most of my life (I’m almost 62) & finally now in my late years, being disabled & very limited in my life, now I don’t have depression anymore! Now is when I finally started living in the simple pleasures of each day. I want to leave this world, but God won’t let me. I guess I have more work to do. I hope you can find such reasons to keep pushing onward thru the pain. Yes it can truly cause physical pain when your mood is so down. Living in pain is a b***h & I don’t know why it happens to some of us. You do a great job of showing how it feels vividly. Keep fighting! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I am so very touched and saddened by your words and hope that you will know that you are indeed a very special person with so much to offer. You mention that you "face the reason for the pain everyday" but I am not sure what it is. Please, reach out to someone to talk about it. My brother has suffered from depression most of his life and confessed that most people cannot even tell when he is feeling his lowest. You must let others know and this heart wrenching write is a good start. Remember you must never give up. Something great could be just around the corner and there is help out there. Take care sweet poet!

If you look inwardly details can overwhelm, but if your focus is on your world around you, then your own troubles seem smaller.

That kind of pain can be one of three things... what kills you, what saves you, or the mark of a profound misunderstanding of a situation.

You get to choose which it is. So choose wisely and always remember, everything is temporary. Everything... even the bad things, even the good things.

Your struggle with depression is heart-rending, and it is expressed powerfully in this piece. Your pain comes through loud and clear. So, unfortunately, does your low self-esteem, which is not at all justified; you have friends in this online society who value you for who you are. Try not to dwell on the negative aspects of your life; focus more on the positive.
How about writing us a poem beginning 'Tomorrow will be better because...' ?
Chin up, Cat, things will get better!

Your poem is so deep and powerful, and it was written with nothing but the harsh truth. I hope you'll get through your obstacles, and find the light at the end of the tunnel.

This isn't really a good coping method but it's one I used to use that would get me through the days when I felt the worst and wanted to just stop, the way to be numb: Let your life flash before your eyes in a rewind, self-reflect but don't do so blindly, face your mistakes and admit your regrets, feel the pain and then talk about it (like here in your writing) on the internet to prevent yourself from becoming a ticking-time bomb and cry - because that is actually a healthy coping mechanism - and don't lie to yourself or others. At least on here we don't have to call bullshit on each other when we tell the truth. Right? Right. And then think about what you want to actually do with yourself - your life. What you want the future to be because the past is taking up your present so to escape it you think about your desires for the future. Or you can do what I do and start writing fiction and read fiction to get other non-existing world ideas in your head and then write your own ideas in relation to it. It keeps me from thinking of the complexities of life and I actually enjoy what I'm doing with my time. That sort of thing.

Now as for the actually poem and not my talk-about-it-paragraph above: I love the way you deliver your emotions like a punch to the gut. It knocks the breath from our lungs and leaves us feeling sore yet familiar with the ache. And the message leaves us wanting to fall to the ground on our knees and cry at the sheer rawness of the words expressed here. Good format too - few words to express a helluva big story.

emo, shy, loves music. I typically keep to myself, and am not very expressive. But when I write, it's like I'm some place else. "Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls .. more..
