Crossed Fingers

Crossed Fingers

A Poem by Project Mayhem

This is about when you're so deep in depression that it becomes an addiction

I'm turning back outside away from you
Just a rapid infinite loop of walls again
And I know that it's true it's hard for anyone
Still it's tempting and elating and you're still apart

Falling down and hear it voice to me
You are long and gone and can't redeem
I can finally believe that it hits me like a train

Crossed fingers, hoping I can bleed my hands with me
Crossing lies, it is just my high 
Shallow eye, it's the strive that makes me helpless
Slowly sane, I am dead inside

Wow! So sad, depression is unbelievable and so destructive.
My mom deals with it and it eats her from the inside out. Great write!
Thanks for sharing and b-blessed!

There is some great work here. Perhaps it is just the lack of punctuation (commas and periods), but the beauty got me to the end, not the story, and that was disappointing for me. I want to have just a hint of understanding, to sympathize with the narrator of this piece. Perhaps that isn't the point of your piece. Perhaps this would only be properly understood by the person the narrator is talking to, but in that case I think the reader needs more structure to follow; again, perhaps it's the missing punctuation that does it to me. It's going on something wonderful, but I don't think it's quite there yet.
