Sad-Me


It's strange when the Sad-Me comes out to play,

Especially on those normal not sad kind of days,

While I sit with a smoke, my mouth shaped in a grin,

then the urge to slam that cigarette in my skin.


Then snap back to me again but wait where did I go,

Why all of the sudden did that Sad-Me show,

I felt fine earlier and my day had went great,

Then without provocation, a wave of pure hate.


A hate going not outward but quickly thrust in,

Despising myself wishing for pain to begin,

Cause thats what I deserve, my happiness is a mask,

My life should be razors, cigarettes and a flask.


But I know that's not me, I was fine till this minute,

Sad-Me I can see my life how you spin it,

I put out the cigarette, sent it soaring with a flick,

I'm happy now Sad-Me so get over it you dick.

I can relate to this poem..When I have that sad-me mood..I just try to be alone and do whatever I want but I actually can't be with group of friends or with many people when I am having this kind of mood..You know solitude is indeed blissful many times especially for me..I liked the way you portrayed the entire concept..
Keep writing..

Do you know what helps me when I am feeling crabby? Music. I would try and listen to calming, happy, and relaxing music. I listen to the Blues all the time when I feel low, and I also play some guitar. I am sorry you are having trouble with depression. It is okay. Everyone has those days, however I'd like to relay the message it is a choice, you can either chose to be sad or chose to be happy with what you have.

I can kind of relate to this, telling Sad-me to go away when it's there. It kind of tells me about depression and how hard it can be to shoo it away, when it's there in our minds. Doing whatever we have to do to build up our own happiness. Thank you for sharing this poem.
