...And the writer buried her pen.

...And the writer buried her pen.

A Poem by Jessica Ramirez

It's not that I lost interest or love for my art.
It's just that I've been stuck for a while. 

Words can't explain what's going on right now. 
The hurt in my eyes. 
The tears in my heart.
The screams in my head. 

Depression's really kicking my a*s this time. I'm not going to win.

So you see, 
I'm having a hard time rhyming lines. 
Making every word count. Making every letter mean something. 
It's too complicated to get it all down right now.

This piece is really just one of the casuals. 
..But I gotta write something before my bottle busts & I wind up doing something irrational. 

Because in this very moment,
I hate you. Me. & Everything. 

I feel lonelier than ever.
Sadder than ever. 
Man,.. I haven't felt even the slightest happiness in forever.

God, just help me. 
Believe in me.
Fight with me.

Please don't let me go unseen.
I'm trying. But I just feel like dying. 

..And all I can say is that I'm sorry.

I wish I could just forget this. 
Forgive. Live. & Rest.
But instead, I'm causing a mess. 

I don't mean to. 

I just..I miss..
