A Poem by Wonderful Letdown

It's about a girl suffering from depression and is on the brink of losing her sanity from it.



She walks home alone,

to her dark abode.

Where all is still,

and no one is home.


She goes through hell,

yet she doesn’t like to complain.

Keeping it all inside,

is slowly starting to drive her insane.


Twisted thoughts start to run through her head,

pain that she alone knows.

Her mind is warping,

in unsightly ways.


Sickening images are taking form,

way too horrendous

for such a young mind

to see such horror.


Reality is starting to warp,

into her horrific fantasies.

A place she never wishes to awake,

unsightly images.

That most would call nightmares,

but not her.


She calls this darkness

‘her one and only home.’

A place to reside,

from this damned thing called reality.


The images happening before her,

they are all she can see.

A smile quickly forms on her lips

as her treasured friends come to speak to her.

Shouting above the screams,

that are echoing around her.


She’s starting to awaken,

from her safe haven.

No tears left to shed,

so many things have gone left unsaid.


Her madness starts to fade.

‘Cause he just had to come back home

to the one he hates the most.


He notices the madness,

that still lingers in her eyes.

What his daughter has to endure,

all alone in her room.

Seeing things we cannot know.


Sinister thoughts continue running through her head.

Malevolence seeping from her every pore.

These things we’ll never understand,

for we ask ourselves:

What ever did go wrong with her?


Now she’s wishing that those scenes

that just keep on repeating through her little messed up head,

would just come true.

So that maybe this madness

would eventually fade.


Observing his daughter laying still,

face blank and staring straight ahead.

Nothing he can do to bring her back from the edge.

All he can do is watch

while she goes through her morbid thoughts,

day after day.


This is her reality,

her unintentional insanity.
