My story isn't long
It's written very clear
I'll tell you if you want
But you may not want to hear
My story isn't spoken
It can not be heard
It isn't in a book
And it isn't made of words
My implement of writing
Was neither ink nor pen
I wrote it with a knife
And I wrote it out again
I wrote it on my arms and legs
I wrote it on my skin
I wrote of fear and pain and love
I wrote of everything
I told of all my troubles
In strokes of clear bright red
Perfect lines of symmetry
Not ink but blood instead
Now if you look more closely
Beyond the pain you see
Past scars and scabs and stitches
You'll find the real me
It's hard to keep a secret when it's written all over your body.

It makes you feel able to cope with life, while at the same time it's destroying you.

How I felt last year

Postby Rubie » Mon Mar 05, 2012 8:59 pm


I'm new to the forum and thought I would start by sharing with you something I recently found in my notebook which I wrote last year in the autumn. I still have anxiety problems and feel I've a way to go till I am and feel better and overcome my difficulties, but I am pleased to say that reading this I know I don't feel as bad as I have done. I think it can help to record, acknowledge and look back on the bad times, to know when things are a bit better, even if it's just small changes you've made. It gives some perspective - I just came home and cried, but this reminds me that things are not really that bad as at least I don't feel the level of upset and dispair I did when I wrote this.

Want to curl in a ball and cry
My head aches, my body feels why bother
Negative thoughts take over
I can’t imagine feeling happy
I can’t see how I can improve

Feeling I’ve ruined my life
From now on it will be hard
And I’ll be miserable
Now I’ve felt the fear and noticed all the fears,
they’ll never go

Feeling this is not a safe world
It’s not possible to feel ok
How can I ever be happy
I’d have to ignore the risks
Just throw caution to the wind

Feeling so sad, and knowing
I make x* sad too
How can I put someone I love through this?
We were so good and now there’s an irreparable crack in the wall
Perhaps we’ll get used to it or cover it up
But it will never go away
It’ll always be in our history and present

A golden eagle came before me
He bore me a golden feather
Solid gold it was
Solid Gold
He then spread his golden wings
And flew high
Into the blue midnight sky
In golden scilence
