Fighting to Control Myself

Fighting to Control Myself

A Poem by Chris Dominguez
"

Have you ever been so depressed to the point where you feel crazy? Well that was me at this point.

"
Head disposing drops of sweaty tears 
Darkness surrounding me 
The voices come back 

-You know you want to- 
No don't say that 
-Everyone thinks you're worthless- 
That is not true! 

 A pause 

Maybe it is true 
my head starts pounding 
I cannot take it anymore 

Looking 
Searching frantically 
There it is 
  
After all this time 
We meet again 
You are cold 
Thin 
A long lost friend 

Just one more time 
My pain flowing down and away 
Like a crimson river 
Everything goes numb 
I'm in a place 
A place where I feel I belong.

Yeah, those moments are soooooo painful and to em so annoying. Cause when I'm sad let me tell you someting I go from some free hot air balloon, not even some helium balloon that someone untied, flying everywhere to some bag a*s boulder Sisyphus has to push up the hill. And when anyone feels like that, self harm is an options which is sad and it sucks D: cause it's not fun, then people see and whisper and judge and then things get worse and so begins the cycle :( Good poem :3 it was sad :l but still nice.

Your imagery is amazing and I think you really grab at us with the voices because we all have them, but I think there are only really two, one quiet and one loud. Of course we usually only hear the loud, but I have found the quiet voice to be quite, orgasmic...

This sort of gave me the chills. Haha, but in a good way. This defintely discribes self harm addiction spot on. Great job :)

this feels like the voices in the head comes out loud speaking to thy self... i guess everyone goes through with it in times of deep sadness.... that the voices somehow settles the strong emotions.... i think you expressed it in abstract way, making it vivid and strong... great work...
