Frantic

Frantic

A Poem by Matt "Mickey" Denney
"

Do you ever feel this way?

"

Gasping gasping
Drowning drowning
Clawing at my throat
I’m frantic

Screaming screaming
Crying crying
Banging my head
I’m frantic

Sick in my own skin
I’m scared
I don’t wanna die
I’m frantic

Hatred spilling from inside
I’m lonely
Don’t wanna be alone
I’m frantic

Choking choking
Suffocating suffocating
Pulling my hair
I’m frantic

 

Bleeding bleeding
Crawling crawling
I lay alone
I’m frantic

Disgusted with it all
I’m frightened
I don’t wanna be here
I’m frantic

Can’t take this

I’m hurting
I don’t wanna go on
I’m frantic

 

 

 

Don’t like to feel this way
Coming apart inside
You put me here
Then run and hide

Memories separate me

From the ones that I love

Over-complicated

And there’s no one left to trust

 

You got me frantic

I said you got me frantic

You got me frantic

And now you don’t speak

 

You’re frantic too

This poem had me stuck in my own pain I endured. Wow, did you write this for me? Honestly, I am a rape survivor who is still going through the jury trial. This poem was quite emotional to me. The words were so powerful that I just read it straight through and started all over again, to realize how great the rhythmn is. You penned this well and I must say, you have talent.

Wow, this takes me back- I used to write like this in darker times, and this really screams to me. You've done a good job of making the poem exactly what it says. Frantic. I really get it. It's dark, honest, simple in a way. Good work!

this is a brilliant poem. you really capture the state of being frantic...for me this is a full on panic attack, with the other person or memory of that person a trigger for this hellish state of mind. i do like the ending a lot.
